    Not bad, Xillia 2! Not bad at all ^_^

    Glad to see it’s doing well. I hope this will help it’s chances of being localized, along with the hopefully good sales of the original when it’s released over here.

  • Tianyu Wei

    I wish people buy more of this game… as Xillia 2 is in EVERY WAY superior than Xillia 1…

    • riceisnice

       Because you get to babysit an annoying little girl the entire game?

      • refrain

        Nah… Elle is not that annoying. Also, the story of Xillia 2 is the best of all tales games so far. Trust me. The amount of content it has is incredible too.

      • Robert Leonardi

        she’s not that annoying (if you want annoying, try the kid from walking dead, the tv series), and besides she plays a HUGE role in the story

      • Arrei

        Let me guess, you saw the little girl, instantly tagged her as fanservice, and moved on without actually seeing what kind of character she is or what her role in the story is.

        A comment from someone who probably hasn’t even played the game ? Were definitely going to take your comment to heart :v

  • Airgetlam

    Good news for Okami HD! The game looks amazing, probably one of the best games to benefit from an HD remaster. 

  • Darkrise

    Yeah they’re definitely going to break through that sale by then. 

  • Awesome news!

  • $24431191

    Good news for both games. The other day I placed an order for the Japanese retail version of Okami HD.

  • MrJechgo

    Come on, just a little more…

  • Hey! That’s awesome. Tales of Successia!

  • I didn’t expect Xillia 2 to perform so well, actually. So I’m pleasantly surprised. Good job, NB!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Ohh 78% is nice for second instalment for Xilia.^_^ and Okami 73% is also a good news for that game as it really deserves as much love as possible lol.^_^

    Overall, nice news for both Bamco and Capcom. Hope both the company will keep doing well and in the future come out with more good games.^___^

  • Göran Isacson

    Neat numbers, and I’m especially glad for Okami. It may not be big sales, but as long as the stock gets sold I’m a happy camper. And even better sales than the PS2 version is definitely a good thing!

    As for Tales of Xillia 2, I guess it sounds well enough… although I am now curious if the direct Tales of sequels usually sell less than their predecessors.

    • Arrei

      Sequels in general typically sell less than their predecessors in the first place, except in the case of greatly improved sequels to not-so-great first installments.

      This has held true even for giants like Pokemon.

  • noctis_nox

    Can’t wait to play it. Really hope for a fast localization. NB do it!

  • Neppygear

    hey bamco dontcha wanna release this overseas too huh

    no seriously I need my playable Gaius

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Then, support the first Xilia when it comes out.^_^ If the first one had good sales, this is one is surely going to come here too.^_^

      • Pyrotek85

        Yup, I’m preordering as soon as possible.

      • Neppygear

         Was already planning to get like twenty copies of it, but okay.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Next year xillia,year after that Xillia 2.(I hope)
    Good times for tales of fans good times.

  • British_Otaku

    Great news for Okami. Okamiden managed to get over 84,000 in the first
    week, but that was a system with a better hold of the market and an original title.
