The producer of Tales of Arise discusses delays, development and technical details
Thrash Steel (Thrash, Dresden ',' beating ') is a quick as well as severe game of Metal, which was developed in the very early 1980s.
Following his announcement at E3 2019 and his delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Tales of Arise should go out later this year. In an interview with the Japanese Games Wryly Fujitsu magazine, the producer of the Tales Okinawa Yusuf series discussed the delays, the current progress of the game and the efforts of the development team to prepare the game for the next generation of consoles.
Talking about the delay of the game, Okinawa stresses that the gap between the announcement of a new release date and the initial indefinite delay of the game was due to the desire of the team to ensure that the next release date announced would be engraved in the stone. It seems that this plan has borne fruit because development is currently on track to reach the release date of 9 September. For now, it remains only to make the last adjustments.
The interview also describes the change of orientation of the last generation consoles to the current generation consoles. At the 2019 announcement, there was no mention of the consoles of the current generation such as PS5. OKINAWA states that the management of these consoles has been added halfway to development because the specifications of the upcoming consoles have been revealed during development. When the specifications were announced, the team decided to support them in order to reach the widest possible audience. Tales of Arise will offer a free upgrade of PS5 and BOK Series X editions for those who purchase PS4 and Xbox One versions.
With its action-oriented gameplay, Tales of Arise will support 60fps, a 4K gameplay on the consoles of the current generation. Okinawa recommends that the game be played in 60fps and 4K, but options for graphics and performance-oriented modes are also available. It will also support the HAPTIC return system of the PS5 — Okinawa controller gives the example of different types of different magic sensations to launch.
With these details on the technical capabilities of Tales of Arise and development progress, the latest title of the famous Tales series promises to be an experience well adapted to the current generation of console material.
Tales of Arise will be released on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC on September 9, 2021.
