Namco Bandai have released a few new English screenshots of Tales of Xillia, which is slated for release in North America and Europe this year. Take a look at the new screens below.
I wish they would show off a release date.
I know right! Hope its mid/late summer. Theres never anything decent to play then.
This. Summer is so dry, yet publishers pack releases to the brim at the end and beginning of the year. :/
They are probably going to announce it some time after Ni No Kuni has been released in Europe, just to avoid mixing up their two biggest 2013 jrpgs.
Yay a few more lines in English. We’re making some serious progress here :D…………Seriously when is the release date Namco ? This is taking way too long.
I see what you did there.
lol my thought exactly
In all seriousness though, let them do their thing. We know it’s coming (let’s not forget the time a while back when even THAT statement was a miracle), we know it’s being worked on. When the game releases to the west, then we can all play it and possibly poke Namco for a few odd localization choices, but until then, I say people should just bask in the coming glory and chip away at their backlog in the meantime.
Is there like a predicted time of year yet?
Maybe the same launch period as ToG ? :)
Just as long as it isn’t out six months late in Europe again…
With a sweeeet collector edition ? I would gladly take it :p
The text could stand to be a little bigger… really…
EDIT: Okay, well, maybe when the game is presented on big screens it won’t be so small.
This. I can barely see the text and these are just the screenshots.
I can see them…when i click on them to make it bigger…of course it will look small on screenshots
Hmm, you’re right it does look a little bigger when you make the screenshot bigger. I just hope that on the big screen the text won’t look so small.
Now here’s some news that has me excited!
I’m hoping for a trailer soon, since I’m curious about the voice cast. I mean, I know Wendee Lee will be in it since she’s in absolutely everything, but I always love it when I can recognize an actor.
I’m personally hoping to hear Vic Mignogna, since I haven’t seen him in any of the voice casts in the series so far. Marianne Miller would be awesome too, since she’s a newer VA but has proven herself to be excellent so far and this could give her popularity a boost (plus she’s Little Kuriboh’s wife, which is just cool XD).
Dammit, Namco sure love trolling when not releasing the releasing date for Xillia! >.< But can't wait!
Need that release date Namco so i can get a preorder ready~
Eight new screenshots….. hooray…er I guess…..
Sounding like a huge nagger and a unappreciative jerk here, but can Namco stop showing screen shots from the first two hours of the game?
I didn’t know that word was in your vocabulary >_>
Dammit, I didn’t even notice that when I wrote the statement.
Battle shots finally. Namco was on a roll today. A trailer would have made this better but soon enough I’m sure…
So, any chance this would come with Japanese audio?
Ni no Kuni had it IIRC.
No chance honestly, Ni no kuni ain’t tales.
Perhaps we could petition them for at least putting it up as DLC.
It would seem silly not to since that would cover the cost.
Seriously this. I would really like to play this game with the original audio. I wouldn’t mind paying extra either.
Not if putting it up as DLC only nets them like 200 more sales, that actually would end up costing them more.
I agree. But I fear this will bring up another DLC related complaint again…
As has been noted, it is really hard to imagine dual language having any sales impact for a series that has never done so state side. The money made from a few folks DLCing could never cover the licensing costs. It’s just not a business decision which could be made.
So many games I want for this year and that’s only for the first Q1&2. My wallet is hitting that Slim Fast this year.
Is it just me or is the text kinda a little bit too high up?
It feels kind of uncomfortable D:
Need a release date, Hopefully this dosen’t leave me cold like Graces. I need a HD Jrpg. Haven’t one in like a year.
I don’t want more screenshots. I want a trailer. A VOICED trailer. And a release date. As soon as possible, actually.
Waiting for this. I’m wrapping up ToX2 these days, it’s QUITE long, I’ve clocked over 105 hours… I’ve used more Milla than Ludger lol XD but with eng ToX I’m gonna play as Jude first.
Geez, Namco is in GOD MODE right now
“At Namco-Bandai’s recent event to promote Tales of Xillia’s “Summer 2013″
Got this off an interview with Hideo Baba on 1UP, so i’m not sure if its legit
Thank goodness we have Ni No Kuni to hold us over!
Looks great. Will be my first Tales game
I don’t even have a PS3 yet and I plan to buy this game regardless. When I got my copy of Vesperia for the 360, it was the last in shop and I never saw it in stores again. Graces is still hanging around, but I want to make sure I get this ASAP.
More support for future localizations as well. I just hope they actually do some commercial advertising for it for a change. We’re a loyal target audience, but they could stand to expand a bit more, too.
So weird to see it in English… I’ve played the Japanese one two times, and own both 1 and 2. Still playing 2 through!
Get off your ass Namco and Translate this game already. We are not letting you forget about Innocence R or Tales of Hearts R.
As the article and pictures note, the game is in process. It’s already a crowed first few months for our niche, we shall see where Xillia finally lands soon enough.
Those sure are some barren environments.
It’s so pretty… (drools)
