Let’s unbox the Tales of Arise Collector’s Edition

Tales of Arise, the latest entry in the long-running series from Bandai Namco, has finally arrived and is now in the hands of fans who have waited years for a new game. It has received rave reviews across the board from various outlets, with our own review calling it “a solid outing that we can’t recommend enough” and is a must-play for fans and newcomers.

Apart from being a must-play, the Tales of Arise Collector’s Edition is definitely a must-have for fans. Sporting a HUGE but exquisite-looking box and slipcase, the Collector’s Edition sold out almost immediately after being posted by local retailers on their respective websites. And for good reason, because I think it’s one of the best CE’s in terms of packaging I’ve ever owned in recent memory.

The Tales of Arise Collector’s Edition retailed for $199.99 or PHP9,995 and includes the following items:

  • Full Game (Ultimate Edition)
  • Collectible Steelbook
  • Physical and Digital Soundtrack
  • 64-page artbook
  • Exclusive 18cm Alphen and Shionne Figurine

At first glance, the contents may seem thin for such an expensive set, but the figurine alone is worth it to collector’s and fans alike. Heck, even the box is such a nice piece!

If I have any complaints, it’s that the parts of the figurine pose a slight challenge to assemble due to fear of suddenly breaking something in the process. Other than that, the full package is simply awesome.

Without further ado, let’s unbox the Tales of Arise Collector’s Edition.

Some parts need assembly. The figurine is surprisingly light and the parts are slightly flexible and won’t snap easily.

Tales of Arise is now available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
