Namco Bandai’s Tales of Xillia is less than two weeks away from release on August 9th, but fans still have time to pre-order their copy of the game. If you act quickly enough, you might be able to snag one of the two limited special editions being offered. Joining the Tales of Xillia: Milla Maxwell Collector’s Edition is the new Day One Edition which is being offered at the same price as the standard retail edition.
Tales of Xillia is finally coming to NA and EU after a gruelling 2 years of being an exclusive in Japan. PS3 has seen a port of Tales of Vesperia, also exclusive to Japan, and Tales of Graces f – which was my game of 2012 – and whilst they are great games they are let down by the lack of character animation.
Xillia is created from the ground up on PS3 and this is why we think it benefits from it.
Here’s another ‘Tales of’ that might not release outside of Japan. Yay!
We recently highlighted how Japan was about to get “Vesperiafied” with a demo of previously 360 exclusive Tales of Vesperia bound for the Japanese store.
Such a demo did in fact land, and just in case you’ve been wondering what a cute pirate looks like as she fends off opponents accompanied by a raucous guitar soundtrack — why, you’re in luck!
With previous 360 exclusive Tales of Vesperia scheduled to hit the PS3 this September, it appears our friends in the East will be getting their hands on a demo a full two months before its release.
Confirming to Dengeki Online that a demo will hit the Japanese Store on July 13th, Namco Bandai expect to see the RPG taster light up Japan’s internet connections next week.
After enjoying an extended stay on the 360, we’ve known for a while now that Namco Bandai’s RPG ship-jumper Tales of Vesperia was coming this fall for the PS3.
Not content with a vague seasonal release date, we know now that the latest edition in the colourful Tales series is coming, to Japan at least, on September 17th.
Tales of Vesperia, Namco Tales Studio’s crazy haired and wide-eyed story of ancient technology intermixed with global catastrophe, scored highly with critics from both the East and West alike (Famitsu gave it 35/40 while Edge scored it a heady 8/10) attracting a whole legion of new devotees to the series.
We have details of what’s coming as part of the upcoming PS3 version.
