The audience for the Tales of series is a bit niche these days, but that doesn’t stop the games from selling. It’s about time Namco Bandai see some big num — oh.
Siliconera reports that the popular series has finally reached the 15 million shipped park, with the help of the recent sales of Tales of Xillia 2 in Japan. Xillia 2 contributed 420,000 units to the total.
The Tales of games were a big part of my adolescent years. Tales of Destiny, Eternia, and Phantasia made sure I had no friends and grew up to be a neckbeard (special props to Star Ocean 2 for cementing that fact). Every fan has a game from the series that really made it for them, and for me that game is Tales of Eternia.
We will be seeing the first Tales of Xillia in North America and Europe sometime in 2013. As always, support the series if you’re a fan so we can see more of it localized in the future.
