If you say the word capitalism in a video game people will say it's Marxist and based and whatever but Tales has often leaned somewhat to the left so it wouldn't surprise me. Vesperia had a pretty positive portrayal of what was essentially an anarchist society. The series has been really phoning it in lately though so caveat emptor

Straight from the game skill tree according to a reviewer….maybe I should really try this.
I watched the first 10 minutes of the game and the premise is dumb. A land of pre-industrial people get conquered by a highly advanced civilization (they posses aircraft with laser weapons). For some reason the conquered people are used as slaves doing manual labour. If the advanced civ has so much technology, then they have no economic need for slaves nor manual labour.
From the first 5 minutes of world building, it appears the story completely ignores any concept of historical materialism. I find it hard to take seriously any claims that the story is pro communist.
Man you gotta understand that a lot of pop culture throws around words like revolution and rebellion without it necessarily meaning anything. It just sounds cool.
Which is fine because not every piece of media has to be "leftist" but y'know, don't be surprised if it ends up disappointing.
Just looking at this image should tell you enough about its politics.

yeah. it's a japanese role-playing game.
The story was about overcoming personal tragedy, like one would expect from a video game. There was nothing communist about it.
I know from the demo that the combat is trash, so if it's written by a Marxist then perhaps they should have spent less time learning from books and more time learning from God of War.
it's for the japanese, they like that kind of thing
