    4 more days(7 for Europe)…

    • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

      Where i currently live is the United Arab Emirates, Middle East. There is an online store which sells loads of things including games and normal stuff, they already have Tales of Xillia in stock!!! Plus I pre-ordered it, so i might receive the package tomorrow.

  • LadyK

    I’m ready for this <3

  • genobee

    I’m on media blackout so not gonna watch this too. Going in blind to let its awesomeness fills every pores of my body and spazes me out.

    • Jesse

      Good idea, since it seems at least one person got the game early, and are let’s playing it already.

    • DichaTesoro

      Somewhat same thing here. I’ve watched the English trailers and know some of the main characters’ names, but that’s about it. Tuesday is going to take forever to get here.

  • RmanX1000

    Got my CE reserved and ready for pick up. So excited.

  • Erick Jahzeel Maradiaga Mairen

    Got mine reserved at gamestop, but I was wondering does this game comes with the japanese opening song, cause I dont hear the song on any english trailer, I hope it brings the japanese opening is really epic !!! Tales games are my favorite hope xillia comes with the jp opening :)

    • Keichi Morisato

      well normally they have the original singer sing the song in English, so in my opinion they both are just as epic.

      • Erick Jahzeel Maradiaga Mairen

        indeed both opening are epic, for example tales of vesperia with jp opening and english opening, but i fear it could happen as tales of abyss only instrumental, it took away the emotion of the anime intro, another one was symphonia too they took away the original intro and add instrumental it was a shame but the game was really good… I hope they add the jp opening to the remake of tales of symphonia chronicles it would be awsome to see and hear the intro with the jp song

  • MrKappa

    The days have been passing by very slowly. Meanwhile I have been hearing how people have this and Dragon’s Crown early… :(

    • Gigus

      I blame amazon. They like to break release dates XD.

      • Anime10121

        I wish, I’ve been ordering everything off amazon for the past 7-10 years and I’ve never once gotten anything early :(

        • Gigus

          lulz well sometimes they don’t and shipping is unexpected do to location XD. I once ordered directly from ubisoft for AC3 and they broke street date but I think they just sent it out early just to make sure that I would receive my game on time.

  • TimesTicking

    My body is ready :)

  • EcoYunix

    Is the opening of this game the same or different?

    • Romored

      Same as the original.

      • EcoYunix

        then i can’t wait :D

  • fireemblembeast

    Nice trailer! I’d cry tears of pride if I saw a TV commercial like this.
    >_<;But… I don't know what I should do…Should I do a Jude playthrough (yeah I did Milla's side first, surprise!) on my JP version first, or start playing in English? Maybe I'll lay the EN version aside until after I complete the JP version. After I start in English, I'm not going to want to go back to the JP version, after all… oh well, I still have all the CE content to look forward to!
    Gosh, it's like playing through 4 times…

    • Jesse

      I’ve heard it’s best to do Jude’s side first.

      • Bobby Jennings

        Jude’s is basically the whole Story. Milla’s is kinda shorter.

        • Gigus

          If milla’s is shorter, wouldn’t it better to do Milla’s first to prolong gameplay?

          The question is (cause I haven’t played it) where does Milla’s story start and finish within the game, and is there any huge difference between their stories to make you play both?

          • MrKappa

            Milla’s isn’t shorter but her story near the end won’t make as much sense because they treat you as if you played Jude’s side first.

            • Bobby Jennings

              Eh it was shorter to me. Jude has all these extra parts that made his seem really long in comparison to Millas. Millas kinda reminded me of Leon’s side from Tales of Destiny Directors Cut.

            • Gigus

              So if you play Milla’s first they’ll treat the ending like how japanese movies work where there is a time skip?
              But what do you recommend which playthrough I do first though?

          • Bobby Jennings

            Well I left hers for last because her music is so god-dang awesome, but I’d recommend Millas first for that exact reason.

            • Gigus

              Hmm……. I’m still split between the two lol.

              • Bobby Jennings

                I did go with Jude’s first, but eh….I might do Milla’s this time. I myself am still stuck between the two.

                • Gigus

                  I really hope the english VO isn’t horrible. *disclaimer* I stopped watching the trailers to avoid spoilers. I wanna keep the game fresh.

                  • Bobby Jennings

                    Same here. I’m looking forward to the skits most of all. Most of the endgame content is bad as well. Basically its all about the story, skits and the battles to me.

        • MasterSensei

          Do you have to play both in order to get the full story?

          • Bobby Jennings

            Not really, but it clears up some parts of the story that you may miss. I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone, but theres big events that happen in one story that doesn’t happen in the other.

            • MasterSensei

              Which story should I play first if I want to get the full story? Also, if they are travelling together(?) why are parts of the story missing?

              • Bobby Jennings

                Sometimes the party splits up. I don’t wanna spoil too much. But if you want to get the full story, definitely play Jude’s first then Milla’s after. But yeah, to be exact, the party splits up sometimes(even in towns)so you’ll see some scenes in one that you wouldn’t see in the other. There’s even bigger events than that but I’ll leave that to when you buy the game. ^_^

          • http://twitter.com/GNPixie Lynx

            No. Both are the full story however Jude’s only covers some material briefly while Milla’4 adds on to it.

  • Bobby Jennings

    Waiting for my Collectors!

    • AnimusVox

      You’re lucky you got that one.

  • Fantasytales

    my body is so ready for this…

    • AnimusVox

      Are you sure?

  • EX+

    Man this game is hyping me up. I’m pretty sure it’ll surpass Graces F plot wise but not so sure about the gameplay.

    • MasterSensei

      I’m sure it will surpass Graces F plot wise…
      I really didn’t like the way that the story played out (IMO)

    • Bobby Jennings

      Yeah, Graces’s gameplay is pretty solid, but one thing’s for sure, it’ll most likely pass Graces plot tenfold.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        The plot didn’t do it for me. I was more engrossed in the gameplay for ToGF when playing it a few years back. I guess I was spoiled by it because when I imported ToX, I just couldn’t stick with it.

        Granted, I dumped about 50 hours into it, but I just couldn’t find it in myself to keep going. It was too boring to me, unfortunately, which caused me to pass up on ToX2 when it released.

        • Bobby Jennings

          Well when it comes to Tales, it’s never about the plot honestly. All about the battles really.

          Though with ToX2…man that was one of the best storytelling in Tales history aside from Abyss.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            When it comes to any game for me, it’s never about the plot, lol. I used to care about plot maaaaaaaaaany many years ago, but now I play for strictly gameplay. If something surprises me with a good plot (i.e. Nier), then awesome, but I certainly won’t go in with any expectations concerning the story.

            • Bobby Jennings


          • Bec66

            I don’t know I think its also really about characters also.

            • Bobby Jennings

              Character interaction, definitely. That’s another place with the Tales series that does extremely well. Bunch of humor and everything.

          • MasterSensei

            I might not pay much attention to the story at times (except for Tales of Symphonia) but what I like the most out of Tales games is the interaction between the characters through Skits

            • Bobby Jennings

              Agreed 100%. And I can’t wait to see how the character interaction is in this game with the english VA’s. I’m hoping they did a great job!

  • PrashT

    can’t play this game until 15th of August
    because of a-week-long-national-holiday on my country, they’ll deliver it after August 15 :(

    • Nitraion

      Guess I am on same boat then…
      2 weeks for us to play it…

  • new_tradition

    Futureshop notified me my CE got shipped, but its a long weekend here. Where ever my package ended up Friday evening, it won’t be touched until Tuesday, so I doubt I’ll actually get it day 1, but I’m still super stoked to try it.

    (But shame on me; I have Abyss and Graces F and haven’t beaten either, but I wanna jump into Xillia D:)

    • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

      I know what you mean. D1 edition for me, but still need to complete Graces F. Doesn’t help that I still have Atelier titles, Binary Domain, The Last of Us, etc still to complete.

      • Keichi Morisato

        I still need to finish Tales of Eternia.

  • EvE

    living in sweden is a pain, not only do i NOT get at Launch but i have to wait a week or two for it to arrive…

    • Keichi Morisato

      you could have downloaded the title.

      • Bobby Jennings

        Maybe he wants the Collector’s edition?

        • Keichi Morisato

          true that is a very big possibility, even I preordered the Collectors Edition.

          • Bobby Jennings

            me too ^_^. Now you got me all giddy xD

  • MasterSensei

    AH DAMN! time caught up to me pretty quickly!! I need to get a brand new HDMI wire before Friday so that I can enjoy this game!!

  • LightGenx

    Milla my love, we will be together soon.

  • http://www.santashi.com/ Santashi

    My CE preorder was charged on 23rd July, so I’m all excited again. Can’t believe it was April that Namco put the preorders up. How time flies! Less than a week to go. :P

    • Bobby Jennings

      Why so early! o.0

      • http://www.santashi.com/ Santashi

        Dunno! I ordered it from Namco Bandai’s website and that’s when they took it. I guess they probably have a lot of orders to process?

  • AnimusVox

    I don’t think my body is ready; this and Dragon’s Crown in the same week? D:
    Agh my poor gaming and always working soul.

    • Tetsu

      Same DAY

  • Jay

    Decided to go with Dragon’s Crown before this, but I’ll get my hands on this gem soon enough.

  • Learii

    I already per-order it so I buy dragon crown on day 1

  • manasword0

    I’m more excited for this Tales than any other, even though I’ve already played the Japanese version.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Will be picking up the CE version of “Tales of Xillia & Dragon’s Crown.

    In the meantime ill be playing Tlaes of Rebirth & KH2 Final Mix on my PS2. Thank god for “Swap Magic” that way i dont have to use mod chips just swap discs w/o voiding warranty.

  • Ace


  • LordKaiser

    Got the 2 games pre-ordered and paid fully in advance so it’s just 1 day left to go to Gamestop and pick them up.

    It really helped that I got to fix 2 clients PCs and they paid me in cash.

  • SgtFrog

    just watch my friend play it and wtf with the dub,
    it’s really disgusting. why bother to put dub if it’s only half-asses job.
    it will be much better to play it without the voice at all back like back in the old days

    • PrashT

      is it already out..?

      • Jesse

        Some people “somehow” got it early. Apparently some places are releasing it early. Or so I’ve been told.

        • Karysonson

          More like shipping it early

          • Jesse

            I’ve been hearing that, too.

    • DyLaN


    • Judge RK

      Press MUTE button and be happy :)

  • kuusou yume

    Mine shipped on Friday. Haven’t got it yet and tmrw is a holiday :(

  • Judge RK

    I don’t understand! Many english voice actors from this game appear in previous Jrpg, Sam Rigel dubbed Flin (ToV)! So all Tales dub are junkie???

  • Astrid Huang

    I got this early and I’m so excited!
    The only downside I see in this english version is Milla’s english VA. Truth is, it’s a huge disappointment because she’s now like a talking robot, the voice is to deep and almost sounds like a man, and somehow I noticed her pronouncation is a bit strange. Especially her “S”s. And to think this happened to the MAIN character :/

    Thankfully, the other VAs are fine. Jude’s voice feels a bit to manly and ambitious for him, but it’s still good. And I can say Alvin, Elise, and Rowen’s VAs are great. Tipo’s VA is a bit different from his japanese VA, but the voice still matches him.

    Haven’t got Leia, but from what I heard in trailers, her voice is great too.

    • zakou

      Kinda sucks how they ignore dual audio for games as big as Xillia and Xillia 2? But they include dual audio for games like Tales of Symphonia Chronicles.
      I Heard Millas voice during the trailer, it sounded really bad imo, like honest to god one of the worst voices i heard in video games, Yuna’s laugh from FFX beats that “s” thing voice that Milla does.

      Seriously her voice sounds like a MIDI file, you said robot lol it’s true it’s like she was synched with MIDI file audio.

  • PrinceHeir

    tuesday is gonna be a beast!

  • artemisthemp

    I really looking forward to my Tales of Xillia CE ship from the Tales Store

  • bloodiOS

    I’ve just been notified that my pre-order came! Man, I can’t wait to go home and play it.
