Tales of Arise came out last year and became a living classic. Some users and critics have named Bandai Namco‘s development the best role-playing game of 2022. However, the project, which became the seventeenth part of the series, could have received another name not related to the Tales of franchise.

In an interview with Denfaminicogamer, producer Yusuke Tomizzawa and development manager Hirokazu Kagawa said that this was discussed at an early stage of development. The authors were going to call the game the laconic name Arise with the intention of creating a brand new IP developed by the Tales of team.

The project was so innovative that the developers were wondering if they should attach it to the Tales of line and make it the next part of an ongoing series of role-playing games.

Atlus producer Eazy Isis confirmed that Tales of Arise is significantly different from previous installments in terms of setting and character design. In addition, the combat system and other factors were changed.

Bandai Namco has not yet announced plans for a sequel, but in early December, the company trademarked Tales of Arise: Beyond the Dawn.
