From Games Radar: "The producer of Tales of Arise has explained why the studio has no plans for a direct sequel or narrative expansion.
Speaking to Edge magazine, producer Yusuke Tomiwaza said that despite the game's success - Tales of Arise shipped 1.5 million copies in its first month to become the series' fastest-selling title ever - a sequel wasn't on the cards. Instead, the team hoped that the story would be complete "with a good aftertaste" that would eliminate the need for expansion.
Instead of building on that story, Tomizawa says that his studio wants "to continue to take on the challenge of [...] acquiring new fans for further expansion of JRPGs." To do that, "we need to come up with a cutting-edge flagship title that builds on the success of Arise, while also providing an opportunity to rediscover the history of the series."
I 100% the game, really enjoyed it. It doesn't exactly lend itself well to a sequel.
The game is fine by itself. Go for a new story and world in the next installment instead please.
A new game would be fine. Both Arise and Berseria were strong releases and I hope to see more quality later to challenge the crown of the JRPG.
It kind of sucked anyway, really emotionless and boring story. No need for a sequel.
I like the game but I am curious as to how they could even pull off a sequel its pretty much a complete story from beginning to end. Sometimes sequels in the Tales franchise will either be good or it's crap. Berseria is a great prequel/sequel to Zestiria, Tales of Xillia 2 was great I enjoyed it, Tales of Symphonia 2 honestly was just crap.
