Namco Bandai just let it be known that the most popular game in the Tales series will be released internationally sometime in 2013. They didn’t provide any further information than that. This is wonderful news for fans of RPGs as I’ve heard nothing but good things about Xillia. The game sold so well that a sequel is be prepared for release in Japan later this year.
Tales of Xillia features two distinct storylines, branching paths and a completely different perspective than normal. Instead of having an overhead camera, the action takes place up close and personal like a traditional third-person game. We’ll have much more information on Tales of Xillia was Namco slowly releases it over the coming months leading up to its eventual release.
It should be noted that this was a PS3 exclusive in Japan, and odds are it will remain so when it releases internationally next year.
