After waiting nearly two years more than our Japanese friends, we Western gamers have finally got our hands on one of the most eagerly awaited RPGs of recent memory. But was it worth the wait?
Tales of Xillia takes you on a journey with Milla Maxwell, a spirit deity in human form, and Jude Mathis, a young student, as they try to stop a corrupt king using a deadly weapon in a war he’s desperately trying to start.

You’ve probably just about finished Ni No Kuni by now yes? Well, that means you need another absorbing JRPG to get stuck into and once again Namco Bandai are here to help, this time with their long awaited English version of Tales of Xillia.
The latest trailer ups the drama and shows off some of the game’s slick anime cutscenes as Milla, Jude and co look to save the world. We have some combat gameplay trailers for you here too. Stick around, I’ll be publishing my full review of the game later today after weeks of playing the game. I might squeeze in a few more EXP though first.

The PS3’s next essential RPG is but a few scant months away and here’s another trailer for you. We’re presuming all the drama will make more sense when we get our hands on the game on August 9th. There’s a typical lack of gameplay (you can see some here though), but you do get to see both anime and in-game engine cutscenes, both of which are looking great.

Namco Bandai have released three new trailers for Tales of Xillia, the Japanese JRPG that is finally coming to Western gamers in August after nearly two years of jealous waiting. The game was met with widespread critical acclaim when released in Japan and even a sequel was released in 2012. Namco will need to see some decent sales of the first game in the West before they consider bringing the second game too.
The new videos show Xillia’s opening sequence and gameplay in the form of character demonstrations for the rather reserved Rowen and the much more feisty Leia. The action-heavy approach the series takes has proved very popular with fans over the years and we enjoyed the recent Tales of Graces F too with Matt awarding 8/10 in his review. You may have also noticed that earlier today we reported that a HD re-release of Tales of Symphonia is coming to PS3. It’s taken a while but JRPG’s seem to finally hitting their stride on the PS3. Enjoy the new videos after the break. Continue reading Three New Tales of Xillia Trailers Released →
European fans have been waiting years for a localised release for Tales of Xillia and here are some new gameplay videos to whet your appetite. Xillia is actually the 13th entry in the Tales series, but just like Final Fantasy, you don’t need to have played the previous titles to get involved. The game received fantastic scores in Japan, so we’ve got high hopes for it.
Japan even got a sequel late last year, so Namco are probably waiting to see how this one does before announcing a Western release too. JRPGs are finally doing well again in these parts with Ni No Kuni and Tales of Graces F proving popular with fans and critics alike. Tales of Xillia lands August 1st, which should give you enough time to finish those other two. Well, one of them at least. Continue reading Tales of Xillia Battle Showcase Trailers →
