Namco Bandai has released a new set of English Tales of Xillia screenshots.

The 15th anniversary Tales RPG is due for PlayStation 3 this year in North America, Europe, and Australia. It was first launched in Japan in September 2011. IGN went live with a new preview of the game today.

      Nothing yet. Still general 2013.

      • ShinAsura

        Ok thanks, I’m going to be occupied with titles from both Japan and US soon so this can release during the Summer

    • MrKappa

      Was speed reading this and my heart almost dropped when I saw the word September. This game “seems” to of been done for the longest time but apparently they don’t wanna step on NnK toes. Hopefully this is out by April the latest.

  • chinglee

    Gonna be preoccupied with Ni No Kuni during Febuary so a mid/late March release date would me nice, pretty please :3

    • syaznifaiq

      i dont think so, the reason why they still didn’t announced the released date is because they did not want to clash with another big title we got Jan -Ni no Kuni, . Feb -MGSR, March .-God of War: Ascension, .May -The Last of US i said maybe around April or july – september .. possible July

  • zakou

  • An chan Yumi

    This game was a big disappointment for me.

    • rebellion14

      I agree but I want this to do well to get a localization of the sequel, which was amazing.

    • BizarreJelly

      What was disappointing about it? Without spoilers please :P I’ve seen a few people say it’s disappointing.

      Can’t wait for it anyway, hope we get the sequel aswell.

      • rebellion14

        The game was very rushed, lack of non-DLC costumes(altogether there are 4 costumes…I think), no cameo battle, simplistic EX dungeon, rushed final dungeon (I mean VERY RUSHED), some characters don’t have that many artes, occasionally it has significant slow-down in battle (though this was improved moderately in the sequel). I found the story to be nothing special (best I can say w/o spoilers), The mystic artes are very lackluster (mostly flashing lights….which disappointed me). Basically if you are looking forward to Tales with content (like I was) this one is not for you.

          Gonna get it anyway: for the localization of Xillia 2 and future of Tales series.

          • rebellion14

  • Revorse

    Hehe. “Rear Support” I need to grow up.

  • Fantasytales

    • fireemblembeast

      • Fantasytales

  • LordKaiser

  • vertical09

    I just can’t get over how small those subtitles looks…

    Well anyway, glad to see more on this game~ Guess they wanted to let Ni No Kuni pass before getting into this.

  • http://twitter.com/douten Minh

    collectors edition, yes plz!

  • fireemblembeast

    Haha, just came here by accident trying to type in gamestop but this was a nice little surprise. Now that ni no kuni passed I hope we will finally hear more and get a release date! Fingers crossed for dual audio, but not getting my hopes up… and yeah, that text sure is small.

  • bebestorm117

    It would be nice to have Xillia 1&2 together but Im content with just Xillia

  • KurisuMakise

    I have a sinking suspicion this is going to be April and thus my money will be near gone before summer @_@

    • fireemblembeast

      Me too, I think April, maybe May. Good thing my B- day is coming up in May! :3

  • Ramza Beoulve

    “At Namco-Bandai’s recent event to promote Tales of Xillia’s Summer 2013 release.”

    got this off an interview on 1UP with Hideo Baba, but ‘m not sure if its legit.

      Echoing my post on GAF.

      I find it weird that none of the other previews (IGN, GamesRadar, D’toid, etc.) mention the summer 2013 release window. Plus, Crunchyroll’s post says it’s out “first quarter of 2013.” Clearly, one, if not both, of 1UP and Crunchyroll, is wrong.

      I’m wondering if either site accidently let the release window slip, or if it was a simple typo. I remember writing a ToX piece once where I wrote “early 2013.” I had thought that was the release window for some reason, but quickly realized there wasn’t a confirmed time frame outside of the general 2013 window and fixed it.

  • PrinceHeir

    this should be June 2012(Summer) then announce the release date of the 2nd game for Q1 2014(as much as i hate to see it like that)

  • EspadaKiller

    Need…this…game…badly

  • Luccie85

    Any news of Vesperia PS3 with the little pinky pirate ?

    • ddsfan2

      There’s always the fan translation. I’m probably one of the few people who had the opportunity to pick up a second very low cost PS3 for CFW, but it’s going to be great whenever the fan translation is finished.

      On the plus side, there has been a translation script of the 360 version available for ~3 years. It works well enough for me, although there is a lot of added dialogue and content beyond the 360 release, which is annoying.

      I’d say, just use the full PS3 translation document when it is officially released, that should be good enough and inexpensive, and won’t require special firmware.

  • ddsfan2

    I was actually worried that Namco that wasn’t going to localize this game, which of the current generation “Tales of” entries looks the most appealing to me… I have the JPN Vesperia which is excellent, and at some point plan on picking up Graces.
