NEWS - Tales of Xillia Receiving Western Release
Reported by NCZ on Fri Jul 6 2012

The most recent entry in Namco-Bandai's beloved RPG series, Tales of Xillia, will at last be made available to players outside of Japan. This was announced during a fan conference held by the company at Japan Expo. The Tales series is known for having trouble with localization internationally, with many entries remaining exclusive to Japan (the first in the series, Tales of Phantasia, took 10 years to reach western shores). However, with this announcement and the recent release of 2009's Tales of Graces in western regions, it would appear things are looking up.


According to the franchise's official British Twitter page, further details like release date and language options are limited. An English dub seems likely, but considering the series' past history, don't expect it to be unionized.


On a related note, it was announced previously that Xillia would be receiving a sequel. At the moment, there's nothing about an English release for it, but it would seem safe to assume that it'd be based on the success of the first one.


Xillia will be a PS3 exclusive, just as it was in Japan.

Really do seeing this as unionized dub deep down they'll have new talents coming up from AX. Really want to see Jamie Marchi voices as Millia and neither don't care for Jude though.

Oh, I need to buy me PS3 badly

OH GOD LIFE IS WONDERFUL YES. I'll buy this game and so should you!

*ahem* Let's see. I think Ali Hillis would be fitting for Milla, though that would be stretching the Lightning-Milla comparisons. Maybe Tara Platt? Kari Wahlgren would fit like a glove as well. Or maybe they could surprise me. Well, I love Milla, so I hope they cast a good one!

As for Jude... honestly, his design is so generic, I can't really think of anyone XD But I'd like if they went for someone they don't use much.

And Steve Blum for Alvin. Because I want to hear Blum in my Tales!

So excited~!

@Sahgo I also want to hear Steve Blum in a Tales game and he might be good for Alvin either that or a villain role.
