This announcement has nothing to do with E3, it’s just perfect timing. This weekend Namco Bandai is holding their Tales of Festival event in Japan, and their big announcement was that Tales of Xillia 2 will be released exclusively on the PlayStation 3 sometime later this winter. Naturally this is only in Japan for now, but I hope it makes its way to Europe and North America sometime next year.
Here’s the debut trailer, and a quick look at some gameplay.
Ayumi Hamasaki stay on to perform the theme song, while Ufotable is taking care of all the game’s animation. Namco Bandai promises to reveal the exact release date and further information on June 27th, so importers of long-time Tales fans haven’t got long to wait.
