Tales of Arise is now the fastest-selling RPG in the Tales of franchise’s history, according to Bandai Namco.
The total worldwide shipments and digital sales for the most recent entry have surpassed one million units within less than a week after its release last Friday. The series’ overall total shipments have reached 25 million units worldwide.
For comparison, Tales of Berseria sold 2 million copies 5 years after its debut while Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition sold 1.5 million copies since its release in 2019.
The publisher has also released some art and a “thank you” video to celebrate its new milestone. Considering that past Tales of titles barely even reach this milestone (like Xillia and Zestiria previously under ex-series producer Hideo Baba’s direction), this is quite a feat and a new beginning for the series under new management.
Tales of Arise is out right now for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. Personally, it’s a solid entry.
