Release Date: TBA 2020
The Tales games have been around since Tales of Phantasia in 1995. The series gained notoriety with Tales of Symphonia on the Gamecube, and Tales of Arise will be nearing the series' 20th entry when it launches in 2020.
The game will feature a complete graphical overhaul, but the same tried-and-tested combat. Combat in Tales games places characters on a straight path towards their enemy, allowing them to use the directional buttons for combos like in a fighting game.
It takes a bit to get used to, but one only needs to check YouTube's Tales combo videos, such as those for Tales of Berseria, to see the flashy results.
Considering the history of the series, it might be best to grab a hold of Tales of Vesperia, which is available now and serves as a strong entry featuring the best protagonist according to many in the community. Look for Tales of Arise when it releases sometime in 2020.
