The long-standing and successful “Tales of” series celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2020, but the party’s not over yet. The next game in the franchise, “Tales of Luminaria,” is coming, and there’s already a lot of information about it available to keep fans engaged since it was first announced at Gamescom 2021 in August.
Described by Bandai as “undoubtedly one of the most iconic series in the history of Japanese RPG,” the “Tales of” games combine fantasy, combat, and loveable characters to create an impactful experience. The most recent installment in the series, “Tales of Arise,” released on September 9, 2021. Critics had differing opinions on the title; while some loved the characters and combat, many found the plot a bit disjointed and poorly paced. Nevertheless, the “Tales of” games have a solid reputation to lean on, including an impressive 25 million units sold across the franchise.
