Tales of series started with Zesteria on Steam and since then, every subsequent game has made its way to PC. The producer has recently expressed his happiness with how the games are doing on Steam.
Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition is coming to a variety of platforms that also includes PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, in addition to the PS4 and PC. Tales of Vesperia producer recently gave an interview in which he talked about the sales success of the series on Steam and how they want to focus their efforts on making the games more multiplatform in the future (via).
Speaking about the Tales of on Steam and how it has fared overall when it comes to sales, he especially picked them as an example of selling really well for Bandai Namco.
Tomizawa stated that one of the big goals of this game is to help the series go fully multiplatform. The Steam versions of Tales games in particular sell very well.
They want to cultivate this idea with Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition which is their first multiplatform release. They hope to use this as a test for future entries in the series.
While this time the concept was to bring a good game to current platforms as it was, Tomizawa wants the team to challenge itself for future Tales games. While the team will keep aspects of the Tales of series that should never be changed, he wants to reconsider how much of the series should be changed.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is set to launch on January 11th, 2019, for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
