Tales of Festival hall of fame

If you’re wondering where Yuri (from Tales of Vesperia) and Leon (from Tales of Destiny) are, the two no longer appear in the character popularity polls due to having won it on multiple occasions. Think of it as retired characters for being too popular and always taking up the top 3 in these polls. On that note, Mikleo (from Tales of Zestiria) placed top 3 on a few occasions and placed #1 back in 2017, so he’s looking like the next one to join the Tales of Festival “hall of fame” in the future.

In case you missed it earlier this year, Bandai Namco revealed the bestselling Tales of games of all regions for the first time. The entire Tales of series also recently passed 25 million copies sold worldwide.
