Tales of Arise Introduces Dohalim and Kisara
In a new trailer unveiled during the Summer Game Fest Kickoff presentation, Bandai Namco introduced two new characters in Tales of Arise, Dohalim and Kisara. The video also shows the region of Elde Menancia on Dahna, where players first meet Dohalim and Kisara. Dohalim is a gentleman from Rena, with a strong love for the arts, and fights with a rod, mixing techniques and Astral Artes during combat. Kisara is one of the most powerful soldiers in the Dahnan army who accompanies Dohalim. Armed with her hammer and shield, Kisara is a force to be reckoned with.
The trailer also shows off new Artes for the characters, as well as Boost Strikes, in which two characters perform a joint finishing blow. Tales of Arise is set to release on September 10, 2021, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
I hope to give the game a try after it comes out this Fall. It looks like something I would enjoy playing. Out of the previous entries for Tales, the most fun I had playing was Tales of Vesperia.
