  • Deal06

    I wish they would show off a release date.

    • Brion Valkerion

      I know right! Hope its mid/late summer. Theres never anything decent to play then.

      • Elvick

        This. Summer is so dry, yet publishers pack releases to the brim at the end and beginning of the year. :/

    • Ladius

      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.

  • Tales_of_Master

    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.

    • Dimentionalist


      I see what you did there.

      • fireemblembeast

        lol my thought exactly

    • Barrylocke89

      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.

  • Phoenix Wright

    Is there like a predicted time of year yet?

    • Farid Belkacemi

      Maybe the same launch period as ToG ? :)

      • Neppygear

        Just as long as it isn’t out six months late in Europe again…

        • Farid Belkacemi

          With a sweeeet collector edition ? I would gladly take it :p

  • Suicunesol

    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.

    • SerendipityX

      This. I can barely see the text and these are just the screenshots.

      • AkuLord3

        I can see them…when i click on them to make it bigger…of course it will look small on screenshots

        • SerendipityX

          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.

  • Spirit Macardi

    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).

  • YoshEE

    Dammit, Namco sure love trolling when not releasing the releasing date for Xillia! >.< But can't wait!

  • AkuLord3

    Need that release date Namco so i can get a preorder ready~

  • Randy Marsh

    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?

  • KingGunblader

    Battle shots finally. Namco was on a roll today. A trailer would have made this better but soon enough I’m sure…

  • Carlos Daniel Flores Loreto

    So, any chance this would come with Japanese audio?
    Ni no Kuni had it IIRC.

    • raymk

      No chance honestly, Ni no kuni ain’t tales.

    • CirnoLakes

      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.

      • $24431191

        Seriously this. I would really like to play this game with the original audio. I wouldn’t mind paying extra either.

      • raymk

        Not if putting it up as DLC only nets them like 200 more sales, that actually would end up costing them more.

      • echokanon

        I agree. But I fear this will bring up another DLC related complaint again…

      • M’iau M’iaut

        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.

  • Niermyico

    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.

  • yalissa

    Is it just me or is the text kinda a little bit too high up?
    It feels kind of uncomfortable D:

  • Jordan Coleman

    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.

  • Freud_Hater

    I don’t want more screenshots. I want a trailer. A VOICED trailer. And a release date. As soon as possible, actually.

  • Demeanor

    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.

  • Go2hell66

    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

  • saintfighteraqua

    Thank goodness we have Ni No Kuni to hold us over!

  • Nitraion

    -Demon fist
    -Eagle Dive..
    -Divine saber
    -Indigation!!! XD

  • gamefreak86

    Looks great. Will be my first Tales game

  • Raltrios

    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.

  • akiko_sakuraba

    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.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      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.

  • Alphabet Soup

    It’s so pretty… (drools)
