My wife and I have enjoyed MP in the Tales games. If it's possible to keep it around that would be great. We didn't play through either game completely together but we'd absolutely jump in on each other's playthroughs from time to time and have some fun.

This will be a day one buy for me. I wish my GF would play video games with me. The closest I have gotten with her playing video game is angry birds on the iPad. But hey we all have to start somewhere.

I love that I get to play VGs with my wife but there are plenty of other things to do with your SO that are well deserving of time spent. That's really the important thing. :)

I think I'm going to wait for Europe to have some sort of better game bundle. I wasn't happy when Europe got a better game bundle for Tales of Graces F while we got nothing special:

That's great for ~30mins (not sure how good you are and really don't want to know) out of your day but what about the other 23 hours and 30mins.

Well, there are other things besides that, too. :)

Huge fan of the Tales series, I'll gladly pick this up day 1. Did the same with Graces f and I don't regret it one bit. Almost guranteed we won't see any LEs or physical pre-order bonuses, and as much as I'm not a fan of digital pre-order bonuses, hopefully it will come with at least costumes or item/weapon packs.

ah great news.. jesus this reminds me i still havent played... ummm.. whatever the one after Vesperia was. Have a couple copies but havent opened or played either one. I guess i better get on that

I hear great things about Xillia. Supposedly its one of the best ones in the series. I havent seen any pre-order bonus's yet. Are any planned or is it better to just get an order in now?
My massive game collection list: (work in progress, pain in the butt getting it all entered)

A note to all Tales fan. NB said that they looking at Xillia sales to see whether they should continue publishing the series outside of Japan. So if this one doesn't sell well it could mean the end of the Tales series in NA/EU.



Ahhh.. I loved vesperia so much when I played it on my friends 360.

I'll wait for the reviews and if it gets at least something similar to the other tales games I'll pick it up for sure :).

I'm waiting for Amazon to put this up so I can pre-order it. Off to spend another 200 hours writing a GameFAQs guide that gets me 2m hits.

I was actually using your guides for my Atelier ending/flag runs. Great jobs on those by the way! Looking forward to Xillia! I've been Tales deprived.

I forgot this one was the one that got announced for localization. This is the first Xillia and not the second one, right? For all I know, Namco could be screwing around with the naming conventions again (ala Tales of Eternia/Destiny II)

Dropped $5, hoping for some more silly Gamestop-exclusive DLC.

This is exactly what they said about Graces F, which supposedly sold better than expected. Fuck 'em, they can't keep relying on word of mouth to sell their games. I'm buying it anyway because I love the series, but still.

Thanks for the heads up, OP.

I love the Tales games! Can't wait for this.

Btw, Amazon has it listed for release on Dec. 31, 2013. Is that just an arbitrary number or the real release date? If it is real, I'm gonna die waiting, lol.

That's a common placeholder date. All we know is "this year" so that's the last possible date without them being liars.

IIRC Graces F was released in the spring of last year. They may aim for that, summer or early fall. Any later and it would likely get overshadowed by all the AAA holiday releases.

I have to think much of that was due to launching so close to Mass Effect 3.

Pre-Ordered on Amazon, but will cancel if Newegg does another one of their deals like they did with Graces F.

i think summer is best. summer has the fewest releases. this is a niche title. no sense aiming for spring which is already loaded with stuff.

I think that might have more to do with the fact that Graces F was generally considered a worse game, came out on the JRPG heavy PS3 vs the JRPG light 360, and, as was mentioned earlier, had some solid competition at launch.

The problem of summer releases is they under sell the fall and spring releases. Just across the board. The summer is such a busy time for a lot of people it's hard to expect people to want to pick up a game that will probably drop in price before they have time to get to it.
