Namco Bandai Have High Expectations Of Tales of Xillia


Namco Bandai have high expectations for Tales of Xillia. They report that they’ve shipped 500,000 copies of the game to Japanese stores already.


Tales of Xillia was released alongside a specially-themed limited edition PlayStation 3, and is meant to celebrate the series’ 15th anniversary.

Just prior to Xillia’s release, Sony cut the PlayStation 3’s price across all models, including the Tales model, which certainly couldn’t have hurt sales either.


As usual, we’ll find out first-week sales numbers for Tales of Xillia next Wednesday.
