The Tales of franchise, Bandai Namco’s flagship series, has surpassed 20 million sold units in total. The official website made the announcement and commemorated the milestone with a special PC wallpaper, Tales of-themed SNS icons, and a Twitter campaign (Japanese only). Said campaign has fans tweet out their favorite moment in the series for a chance to be one of three winners of a Tales of Festival 2019 pamphlet signed by the cast.

It was revealed that a brand new title in the series would be coming to consoles. However, no other details have been released at this time. This will be the first brand new entry in the series since Tales of Berseria came out back in August 2016, nearly three years ago.
