    Such talented artists. Already loved Xillia’s box art, this one is almost as awesome.

       Also fell in love with this boxart! Tales of games have the most amazing cover art I’ve seen.

    I’m not a fan of Tales art in terms of characters. But dat Milla and Leia.

  • I don’t know about you all, but I want some NA/EU Xillia 2 box art. =)

    Just go ahead and announce the localization for us, Namco Bandai. You know you want to! xD

      I don’t sense enough ENTHUSIASM coming from you yet. Guess we’re not getting it, thanks a lot Mr. Zero…

    who’s the artist of the Tales series??

    he/she always makes gorgeous boxarts :)

    • KurisuMakise

      Currently for TOX2  it’s an in-house Art director; 
      Daigo Okumura.  What amazes me is that his style is similar to Mutsumi Inomata (who did the art for Tales of Graces/F). 

    • This box art is actually a collaborative effort between Daigo Okumura, Mutsumi Inomata, and Kosuke Fujishima.

        thanks for the info ^^

    Looks great!  This may be the first cover for a Tales game that I actually like!  Most of the 2D art from Tales isn’t my cup of tea and I feel translate much better into 3D than the original 2D art, but this really looks great!  The only thing I see that I dont like is Jude’s eyes, he looks kinda slow, but everything else <3 it!

  • i liked the original tales 2D art style

  • EspadaKiller

    Another awesome Tales boxart. Just awesome.

    Does anyone know how well Graces F did in US and Europe? As in sales XD because the more sales the higher % chance of every Tales of game coming outside of Japan :D

      I can’t give you numbers, but I believe NB was pleased with the sales. I remember that ToGF actually made it to the top 10 chart in the US, but unfortunately NPD doesn’t ever release official numbers for the games, you’d have to rely on the publishers for that, when they sometimes feel like sharing some official numbers.

      Then there’s VGChartz, and we all know these guys like to take numbers out of their arses, so they’re definitely not the place to go for this information anyway :P

    Is Milla nude? Everyone looks awesome…except Ludger. I think Alvin may be my new favorite video game character.

    • Bec66

      Yah Millia’s naked why do you think Jude is looking in the opposite direction so nervously. XD

    Looks great! I really like Elise in the first game, so I know for a fact she and Leia(My favorite character to use) will be in my party.
