Tales of Arise Potentially Leaks, Reveal Set for Xbox E3 2019 Press Conference [Update: We Have a Logo]

Tales of Arise Potentially Leaks, Reveal Set for Xbox E3 2019 Press Conference [Update: We Have a Logo]

A new Tales RPG seems to have been revealed a little too early.

Update: Since the leak dataminers have uncovered a logo from Bandai Namco's website. This sure seems like a real game now.

The E3 2019 leak watch continues as this time a new Tales Of RPG seems to have been revealed a little too early. What's more, there are some really pretty screenshots to go along with the rumored title, Tales of Arise.

The news comes from a couple different sources. Mention of a new Tales game seems to have appeared first on 4chan. Then Twitter user @New_WabiSabi teased followers that for news on a new Tales game, they'd do well to tune into Xbox's E3 2019 presentation. Their Discord channel also leaked two high-resolution screenshots supposedly from the new Tales game.

While there are plenty of leaks during E3, it's important to differentiate between what's real and what's fake. 4chan is a hit-or-miss source for leaks, but video game analyst Danial Ahmad seems to have lent some credence to this leak by giving it a title, Tales of Arise.

The leaked images show a knight clad in black armor wielding two separate weapons. One appears to be a regular sword, while the other is a sinister red. Presumably this is a main character of sorts, though they look a bit too ominous to be the hero. The dual sword mechanic is also similar to that of The Witcher's.

The last Tales of game from Bandai Namco was 2017's Tales of Berseria, which came out for the PS3, PS4, and PC. So, the rumor that Tales of Arise will reportedly be shown at the Xbox press conference is good news for Tales fans who only own an Xbox console.

This is the second E3 rumor regarding a Bandai Namco game. The other rumor, which hasn't been confirmed, is that FromSoftware is working on a new game with A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. That game will supposedly be published by Bandai Namco as well.

We'll have to wait until Xbox's E3 presser to see if this leak pans out. Check out our E3 0219 guide for a full schedule and times for the various press conferences next week.
