What's the highest selling Tales game?
Either way, 2 million is a big milestone to a lot of franchises. Glad to hear this one is doing so well. It's been a fun game from what I've played so far.

Symphonia should still be the best selling entry, wikipedia lists it as 2.4 mil, but not 100 % sure the source on that is reliable. It is certain however that the original versions sold 1.6 mil and the PS3 and PC releases should have contributed a good deal too so it's probably in the right ballpark.

with 2m in under a year, its more or less certain this game will pass it and eventually reach 3m. Great news for the franchise.

Actually after checking a bit more it turns out Vesperia is probably highest. When the series reached 25 mil total, Bandai tweeted that it's total sales were 2.88m including both original and remaster.

Here's the top 10 from officially announced sales:

1 - Tales of Vesperia - 2.88 million
2 - Tales of Berseria - 2.00 million
2 - Tales of Arise - 2.00 million
4 - Tales of Destiny - 1.67 million
5 - Tales of Symphonia - 1.60 million
6 - Tales of Phantasia - 1.43 million
7 - Tales of Xillia - 1.33 million
8 - Tales of Eternia - 1.27 million
9 - Tales of Destiny 2 - 1.10 million
10 - Tales of the Abyss - 884,000

Tales of Xillia 2 is probably 10th, but they only ever revealed a Japanese figure (500k).

Good to see it successful. Hopefully the series will have a game reach the Ten Million Club at some point.

Next up 3 million and becoming the best selling one in the series. This game definitely deserves the sales.

That's what a simultaneous worldwide multiplat release with actual production values leads to. Success.
The previous few Tales of games looked like at least a gen behind and weren't received anywhere near as good as Arise.

To be fair it's only mostly just the last 2 games Zestria and Berseria that were graphically behind the times and even then it wasn't that bad, certainly wouldn't say that they were "at least" a gen behind. And Berseria was quite well recieved by the players, even if didn't get quite as much praise from critics as Arise.

Wish I could be happy about that, this has been the biggest disappointment in the series for me since Graces, tho at least I can give merit to Graces of having an actual fun combat system, and more than 5 enemy designs, and proper victory dialogues, and a consistent art direction that doesn't make the game jump between looking like garbage and decent enough but still less visually pleasing than Vesperia, and music with any kind of energy to it, etc. Hopefully the next one is better tho.

Never played a tales game, but I really like to see that 1) games do not need to always have the most amazing graphics ever and 2) you dont need to sell 10M units for a franchise to be kept alive.

I wish Namco weren't so annoying with locking ToA Collector's Edition behind their storefront.

Congrats on the sales, of course.
