Bandai-Namco's Tales of Arise shipped over 1m units within one week of release, making it the fastest-selling Tales game in history. Of course it's also the first Tales game to have a global launch, so the latter half of the preceding sentence is much less impressive than the first half of it.

What are your lifetime sales expectations?

...

Bonus question: Did you play Tales of Arise yet, and if so, how much do you like it?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

3 million would make it the best selling Tales game, so I hope it sells at least that much.



A bit over 3m.

I played it, haven't finished it, is an alright game, so far would put it on the lower tier of series.



A bit under 3m.

I played it, haven't finished it, is a very good game, so far would put it on the higher tier of series.



I'll go with 3.5 million

I haven't played it, so I don't know if it's a very good game and if I would put it in the higher or the lower tier of the series.



Around the Network

3-3.5 million

I haven't played it yet but looks like a great game. I'll probably put it on the high tier of the series



3-3.5 million as well

I haven't played it or any Tales of game. No idea if it's good or not. I'll probably put it on the high tier of all series ever made in history, including Q-bert.



It can't be understated how well Tales of Arise has done

Weeks to sell 1 million

  • Tales of Arise - <1
  • Tales of Xillia - 12 (aligned)
  • Tales of Vesperia DE - 56
  • Tales of Beseria - 76

Weeks to sell 2 million

  • Tales of Berseria - 250+
  • Tales of Symphonia - 500+
  • Tales of Vesperia (inc DE) - 550+

It could 2 million by the end of the year, the next fastest selling title took 5 years to do that. Tales has finally broken out of its niche, and can now sell 3 million, which in turn will help push its budget further. So glad they decided to go all in with the budget.



I voted for the option just below 3m.

I'm currently obsessed with Tales of Arise, it's a very strong JRPG. I'll probably put it on the high tier of the series, although I never played any other title in the series.



Signature goes here!

It's my first tales of game, bit it's one of the best jrpgs I have played so far. Hopefully it will have some legs and break through the 3 million bar eventually.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar
