Bandai Namco has announced a DLC collaboration between Tales of Arise and Scarlet Nexus. More information about the DLC will be revealed soon.
Both games will receive item attachments and items. In Tales of Arise, Alphen will be able to wield Yuito’s weapon, Myoho Muramasa, and other characters will get the Baki-chan attachment. In Scarlet Nexus, Yuito can wield Alphen’s Blazing Sword and the other characters can wear Alphen’s broken iron mask attachment. It also looks like Tales of Arise‘s owl mascot, Hootle, will be an attachment in Scarlet Nexus too.
It’s currently unclear whether this particular DLC will be free or paid, as Tales of Arise‘s previous crossover DLC with Sword Art Online was $15.99. Scarlet Nexus utilizes a dual protagonist structure, so it’s also unclear whether Kasane Randall will receive weapon DLC of her own or it’ll only be Yuito.
Tales of Arise and Scarlet Nexus are available now on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
