The gameplay of Tales of Arise is similar to that of many other Tales games. The player controls a party of characters and explores the world, talks to people, and fights enemies in a turn-based battle system. The player is able to customize the appearance of the protagonist, which can be either male or female, and choose from one of two fighting styles: the "Hunter" style, which focuses on evasion and counterattacks, or the "Force" style, which focuses on dealing heavy single-target damage.
The graphics in Tales of Arise are in a 3D style and the cinematic scenes feature a 2.5D style.
Tales of Arise can be replayed many times, with each playthrough yielding differing dialogue and story developments.
Overall, Tales of Arise is a story-driven action RPG that tells the tales of a man and a woman from the opposing worlds of Dahna and Rena. As a new era dawns, a long-dormant evil stirs. The Renans, a proud and powerful race, have ruled over the Dahnan people for a millennium. But a prophecy tells of a Dahnan woman who will stop the Renans' oppression. Dispatched across the worlds to find this woman, the Renans find themselves drawn into a Dahnan civil war. The game features an all-new battle system, Linear Motion Battle System, which offers more depth in combat.
