Namco Bandai has announced its Tales of series has shipped over 16 million units worldwide since 1995 with the franchise debut, Tales of Phantasia.
That’s around 888,888 units a year for 18 years, give or take, due to all the 8′s running off my calculator screen.
The most recent entry for western audiences, Tales of Xillia, has shipped over 1 million copies.
Tales fans have plenty to look forward to in 2014 with Tales of Symphonia Chronicles hitting in February and Tales of Xillia 2 as well.
Tales of Zestiria, which was announced earlier this week, will release on PlayStation 3 and is the first in the Tales series to be announced simultaneously for Japan and the west.
