The art has a light, pastel aesthetic and shows “3M copies sold. Thank you!” at the bottom. It shows all of the main playable characters, including Alphen without his mask. Nazamil is at the back between Dohalim and Rinwell. She is a major character who appeared in the Beyond the Dawn postgame DLC.

Bandai Namco reached this sales milestone for Tales of Arise in the span of about 3 years. The game first came out in early September 2021 and it was a worldwide release. It reached 1.5 million sales in October 2021, about 48 days after its initial September 10, 2021 release. Then, less than a year later in April 2022, Bandai Namco announced that the game sold 2 million copies. We can see that sales significantly slowed down in between 2022 and 2024, even though the DLC for the game came out in November 2023.

Nonetheless, Tales of Arise is still the best-selling Tales game. It beat out Tales of Symphonia, which has 2.4 million sales, and Tales of Vesperia, which has 2.37 million sales. These numbers are from 2021.

Tales of Arise is readily available on the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One.
