Tales of Series Worldwide Bestsellers Announced

Tales of Series Sales Worldwide

Bandai Namco’s RPG series Tales of has been running since its incipient Tales of Phantasia on the Super Famicom in 1995, and with seventeen(!) games in the main series, plus spin-offs and other related media, it’s one of gaming’s best known and largest RPG franchises to date.
