Tales of Arise, the latest entry in the Tales Of series, has proven to be a monumental success. Upon release on the 10th of September, it was met with a warm reception by fans and critics alike, with many praising the refined gameplay and breathtaking artstyle. Bandai Namco has recently announced that the sales numbers for Tales of Arise have surpassed 1 million, making it the fastest-selling title in the series.

The 1 million units sold include both digital sales and shipments of physical copies. This is a significant milestone for the franchise and indicates how it has grown past its niche JRPG fanbase and has found mainstream appeal. In comparison, Tales of Berseria, which was released in 2016, has taken five years to reach 2 million in sales.

Tales of Arise has also helped to bring the total sales of the Tales Of series to 25 million. Additionally, the game broke the active players record on Steam for the series. It is clear to see that this is a significant step forward for the series.

The sales numbers for Tales of Arise are even more surprising considering the stiff competition it faced that week. The 10th of September saw the release of Life is Strange: True Colors, a hotly anticipated new entry in the Life is Strange series. This was released alongside NBA 2K22, which is a notoriously popular sports video game franchise.

Developed by Bandai Namco, Tales of Arise allows you to explore the world of Dahna which features a host of sublimely beautiful environments. The main characters, Alphen and Shionne, are born in different worlds. Alphen is a Dahnan man who covers his head with an iron mask. Shionne is an outcast woman with strange powers. Together, Alphen and Shionne team up to defeat the lords.

Tales of Arise is out now and is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
