Review: Arise – A Simple Story Definitive Edition is a beautifully heartbreaking tale

Arise is a beautiful, devastating and uplifting game that suffers from some technical issues on Switch, but not enough to spoil the experience.

  • Gorgeously designed worlds
  • A beautiful soundtrack
  • The time-shifting mechanic is clever
  • New Switch features are welcome
  • Suffers from stuttering and resolution drops on Switch
4 / 5
