This. They kind of caught lightning in a bottle with Symphonia on Gamecube, considering there were very few RPG options available there at the time, but no Tales game has done very well since. It definitely doesn't help that no one knows the games exist outside of hardcore fans due to zero marketing and that they always seem to drop at really inopportune times when other big-name titles will also be coming out.
