Tales of Arise enjoyed solid critical reception upon its release a couple of years ago, and the action RPG has continued to sell well in the time since then. At last count, as of April last year, the game had sold over 2 million copies worldwide, and now, Bandai Namco has provided another update on its sales figures.
In a recent interview with Japanese outlet 4Gamer, series producer Yusuke Tomizawa revealed that Tales of Arise has now sold over 2.7 million units worldwide, which he calls “unprecedented” for the Tales franchise.
“There were a large number of new players and players who had not played the game for a long time, and we were able to sell more than 2.7 million copies worldwide, an unprecedented number for a standalone Tales title,” Tomizawa said.
