The Next Tales Is Indeed Tales Of Xillia 2

Widely expected, Tales of Xillia 2 was indeed confirmed as the name of the series' next sequel at the Tales of Festival in Japan today. The word comes from producer Hideo Baba himself.

That trailer introduces the new world of Tales of Xillia 2, which does reflect a departure from the sword-and-sorcery motifs of previous entries in the Tales series. There's also this one-minute look at the game's combat.

A Japan release is scheduled for the end of this year; a specific date and price will be announced on June 27. The game is for the PS3. There's no information on any western localisations. The first Tales of Xillia was a Japan-only release.

    also can we please have the first one in English already?
    Why wont you let me give you my money namco?

      Namco Bandai UK were teasing something on twitter so there's a good chance it'll happen, but I wouldn't expect an announcement until September or so - announcing Xillia before Graces F is out in Europe wouldn't be a good move.

      On the other hand, it's Namco and they're awful at marketing this series...

        They're awful at pretty much everything these days :(

    we don't even have the first one. looks like we aren't going to see this one for a while.

    Encouraging to see the PS3 still getting major exclusives.

    The scene on the train there reminds of another J-Rpg :) FFXIII?
