Tales of Xillia coming to North America, Europe

Recommended Posts

Namco Bandai announced at the Japan Expo in Paris today that it will bring Tales of Xillia, the thirteenth mothership entry in its Tales role-playing game series, to North America, Europe (EMEA territories), and Australia in 2013.

During a stage event at the expo, series producer Hideo Baba said “there’s a good chance” the west will see Tales of Xillia 2, scheduled for November 1 in Japan, if sales of Xillia perform well.

“The recent success for last autumn’s release of Tales of the Abyss and the anticipated release of Tales of Graces f and its exclusive European Edition has helped make localizing Tales of Xillia for the western market one of the easiest decisions we have ever made,” said Carlson Choi, VP of Marketing for Namco Bandai Games America Inc. “The latest game in this prolific series gives gamers a brand new world and cast of characters to adventure with along with its celebrated battle system that has yet to be rivaled by other Japanese RPGs.”

Good job Tales of fans! We did it!

This the best news I heard all week!

I admit I haven't played that many of them (really only Abyss all the way through) but I really loved that game and I'm already exciting for Tales of Graces f coming very soon!

Long time Tales fan here. Best news ever. I played the Japanese version, but I didn't understand much of the dialog. Just bits and pieces.

Now we just need to do the same for Tales of Xillia 2.

Is anyone else more interested about the story than the gameplay?

hopefully its for the ps3 and story is whats great about the Tales series. I'm gonna by Abyss for the 3ds before i had to use a chiped ps2 to play it and now its broken.

i know they have ported games to other consoles before but i dont see any reason they would port Xillia to a different console
