‘Can I borrow that a second..?’
Bandai Namco has announced that its anime-infused action-adventure titles Tales of Arise and Scarlet Nexus are getting set to buddy up in the form of new crossover DLC, headed to both titles in the future.
The publisher remains somewhat tight-lipped on the incoming collaboration, with more info expected in the coming days. But, in order to whet fans’ appetites, it was revealed that a trade-in-arms will be taking place, allowing Tales of Arise players to wage brainpunk warfare with Scarlet Nexus‘ Myoho Muramasa blade. Conversely, Scarlet Nexus players will be able to don the Broken Mask and Blazing Sword of Tales‘ hero Alphen.
Both of these items will be available to download for all players gratis. Further DLC was not revealed.
While both Tales of Arise and Scarlet Nexus are set within very different worlds, the language of anime adventure is global. As long as you have beautiful people fighting monsters and seeking personal vengeance/redemption, (don’t forget to include an awkward, shy girl), then everything is pretty much copacetic. We’ll be sure to bring you all of the pertinent info when Bandai Namco is forthcoming with the Tales of Arise x Scarlet Nexus lowdown.
Tales of Arise and Scarlet Nexus are both available now on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
