Tales of Arise has finally been released after nearly a year of delay due to the pandemic, bringing back the beloved JRPG franchise with a bang and its first-ever simultaneous worldwide release – and if you’re trying out the game right now, you might be wondering where are the save points an how to save your progress.

Tales of Arise is a peculiar JRPG in how there are no specific save points. Instead, you can save your game pretty much everywhere. This is the norm nowadays when it comes to most mainstream games, and Tales of went that route as well.

How to save your game in Tales of Arise

Whenever you aren’t in battle, press the start button on Xbox controllers, or the trackpad button on PS4 and PS5 controllers to open the menu. After that, you can save or load your in-game progress by accessing the System section, which is located at the far right of the main menu.

Moreover, there is also an autosave in Tales of Arise. The game will automatically save during your exploration of Dahna, most notably after every cutscene. You can see whenever it triggers as a notification will appear at the top left of the screen. If you end up turning off your console or PC without saving, be sure to check the latest autosave, it’ll have your back.

Tales of Arise is out now on PC (Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Note that the game was also released one day earlier in Japan, so beware of spoilers if you regularly roam YouTube in particular.
