NAMCO Announces “Tales of Xillia” For European PS3 Release

NAMCO have just announced that they’ll be bringing “Tales of Xillia” to the PS3 exclusively in Europe and Australia. Well, not just, they announced it hours ago but it was hastily embargoed post-email.


“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 Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Publishing for NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S.

“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,” added Comte.

“Players will engage enemies with the critically acclaimed Linear Motion Battle System that the Tales of series is famous for.  The system allows for real-time movement and attacks, giving the player a more tactical role in the midst of fights,” says the press release.

“The battle system in Tales of Xillia has been upgraded to Double Raid Linear Motion Battle System to let two characters combine their attacks to utilize devastating dual-character attack, letting fans strategize the best party setup for their style of play.”

The game will be out in 2013.

  4. A Tales game in Europe? ….On a sony console? ….and it’s one of the good ones?
    There must be some mistake!
    Here in Europe we only get shit! Everybody knows that Namco Hates European Sony owners. They wouldn’t release a JRPG unless its at least a generation old or it’s the worst instalment in the franchise (graces).
