Tales Of Xillia Officially Confirmed For Western Release
Namco Bandai have finally stepped forward and officially stated that Tales of Xillia will see both North American and European releases. While no specific release date was given, the window of 2013 was put forward.
While this misses the release date of the sequel for the game in Japan, it does look as though its sequel will be released if sales are strong enough on foreign shores. Tales of Xillia was the most pre-ordered Tales game of all time and one of the strongest selling Tales titles in Japan as well, with only Tales of Destiny 2 outselling it.
New Tales of Game coming to PS3 in 2011
Namco Bandai has officially announced today that there will be a new addition to the Tales of series of RPGs. It’s called Tales of Xillia (pronounced ex-sillia) and it is described as a “steadfast conviction RPG”.
It’s expected for release sometime in 2011 on the PS3. Today’s announcement coincided with the 15th anniversary of the first Tales of game, Tales of Phantasia which was released on the Super Famicom.
The game will also be the first of the series to feature two protagonists: a boy named Juuto Matis, and a girl named Mira Maxwell. These two characters were designed by veteran artists Kosuke Fujishama and Mutsumi Inomata. Also, the game’s theme song will be performed by Japanese pop star Ayumi Hamasaki.
