Tales fans rejoice! Today Namco Bandai announced that Tales of Xillia will be released both in the US and in Europe. No release dates have been given as of yet, but the European version will be arriving sometime in 2013.
Namco Bandai really hasn’t been pulling any punches the last couple of weeks. First we learn that the company will be co-developing the next Super Smash Bros., then they set up a teaser site that revealed a new JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fighting game, and now this. We also can’t forget about Project X Zone either. I’m just happy that we’re getting another mothership Tales title in the west. It seems like sales from Tales f Graces F and Tales of the Abyss 3D were enough to remind Namco Bandai that there’s still a fanbase in regions other than Japan. We’ll keep you posted on any new information that surfaces. In the meantime, you can whet your appetite a bit by enjoying one of the game’s openings after the jump.
I am so happy for this :). It makes me want to replay my tales games. I so want to play as the butler guy who seem to specialize in water/ice magic 0.0.
I’m going to main the guy with the huge sword and gun. The girl with the doll would be a close second since she reminds me of Anise, who was my Tales of the Abyss main. I’m just glad we’re getting more Tales games in the west! ^_^
omgomg this is AWSOME also after playing Legendia and Graces I want to play as jude who is also a fist user or maybe as milla as it looks like a rapier. =o but anyway is it going to be on ps3? or dual consoling with the xbox 360 like vesperia?
So far it’s a PS3 exclusive, no plans for a 360 version have been mentioned. You actually sound like Suikoinfinity, he loves fist fighters like Sophie from Graces F and Farah from Eternity.
