Tales of Arise weighs 20GB less on PS5 thanks to the Kraken compression system

We are now a few days away from the official debut of Tales of Arise, the new chapter of the series that aims to become a reference in the genre of JRPG. The most impatient users to start the adventure have already started the preload, however, pointing out a very interesting detail regarding the weight of the game.

As you can see thanks to the twitter published by user Helen Crowns, Tales of Arise in the PlayStation 5 version weighs 20GB less than the old gen counterpart for PlayStation 4. A remarkable result that once again testifies to the effectiveness of the Kraken, the system game data compression adopted by Sony with its next-gen machine. Exactly as happened, for example, in the case of Control Ultimate Edition or Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales, PS5 owners will therefore have the opportunity to save space on their SSD, as well as speed up the download times of the new Bandai Namco role.

We remind readers that Tales of Arise will be officially available on PC (where it will not use Denuvo) and on PS5, Xbox Series X | S, PS4 and Xbox One consoles starting Friday 10 September. Pending the review, we refer you to our Preview of Tales of Arise.
