Bandai Namco's new fantasy role-playing game Tales of Arise has been well received across multiple platforms, including Xbox - with shipments and digital sales already surpassing the one million mark.

The latest entry in this long-running series was released on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Steam last week on September 10th, which also makes Arise the fast-selling entry in the history of the series.

In addition to this, the series (as a whole) has now sold over 25 million copies worldwide. It first started out on the Super Nintendo in 1995 with Tales of Phantasia. Our sister site Push Square gave the latest game nine out of ten stars and said Arise goes above and beyond expectations:

"Tales of Arise went above and beyond our expectations. With its picturesque landscapes instilling a real sense of adventure, it's easily one of the strongest, most cohesive Tales games to date. Dramatic cutscenes and memorable character moments help sell an intriguing story, while a satisfying combat system becomes more and more engaging as your party powers up. A fantastic, modernised journey with all the rewarding qualities of a classic JRPG."

If you would like to give Tales of Arise a go yourself, there's a demo available to download on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. Although progress doesn't carry across, you will get some special bonus items for the full game.
