Tales of Arise will have more theme songs from Japanese singer Ayaka
Bandai Namco has revealed that Tales of Arise will have more Japanese theme songs. The new songs will be performed by Ayaka, a Japanese singer-songwriter who has appeared multiple times in the annual Kouhaku Uta Gassen.
Ayaka will provide not one but two songs for the game. She is personally writing a new song titled "Blue Moon" that will be used as the game's Grand Theme. Her cover of the song "Hello, Again ~Mukashi kara aru basho~" will also be played in the middle of the game's storyline.
"Blue Moon" will be available to listen to on select music streaming platforms on August 26. Meanwhile, Bandai Namco has also uploaded a Japanese commercial movie for the game featuring "Hello, Again" on the Tales of YouTube Channel. You can watch it right below:
We have previously learned about Tales of Arise's opening song: "HIBANA" by the rock band Kankaku Piero. While the opening song is confirmed to be available in both Japanese and English, we have yet to hear whether Ayaka's songs will also have English versions or not.
Tales of Arise will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X first in Asia on September 9 and in the West, along with the PC version via Steam, on September 10. A public demo of the game has just been released on PlayStation and Xbox platforms.
