Tales of Xillia Brings Goods to Europe

edited April 2013 in Latest Updates
The European branch of Namco Bandai is just a step behind North America, but they are trying to make up for the delay with the promise of a Collector's Edition. Be warned that Collector's Editions may inflict sticker shock.

Update: Story updated with news about North American version and a trailer.

    Warning to anyone planning on getting the collector's edition: find out if Bamco is still using Digital River for their storefront, because they totally botched the Ni No Kuni Wizard's Edition earlier this year, sending out copies to people who only ordered it like 2 days before and cancelling preorders that had been registered for months.

    I want it but I'm not doing business with digital river and I'm not going to pay into the gougers' pockets. EBGames.ca or Amazon.ca I will get a pre-order done immediately. Otherwise, no deal.

    Namco Bandai Europe seem to be doing business with an e-commerce company called 'Pepita', as opposed to Digital River.

    The collector's edition is currently the #1 best selling PS3 game at Gamestop, so hopefully we'll get Xillia 2 as well.

    Preordered the European version as soon as I heard Gamestop were selling it in the US, as I had a mild panic and thought the limited numbers produced would be for worldwide (which they may be, I'm not too sure..)

    I really hope this does well in Europe, so we can get future games like Xillia 2

    ARGHHH!!!! After the amazingness that was Tales of Graces F, I cannot WAIT for this. My most anticipated game at the moment.

    I want it (have it pre-ordered) but I've heard the game was rushed. This wasn't said by people that usually say this, so I trust them. I think I'll enjoy it no matter what.

    At least we know the localization process wasn't rushed. ;)

    It's a case of where unused assets went into the sequel, which includes two playable characters.

    That, and I've heard every port looks the same and that some enviroments are a bit uninspired. It won't matter much if the battles are fun, there are skits (duh!) and the story is better than the one in Graces f.

    I'll get this game for sure, but I certainly won't pay $100 for it. Don't really need a collector's edition, I just want the game. =3

    Haven't finished a Tales of... game for a long time. Always quit them because of the same reason: The crafting aspects. But I play them long enough each so that the purchase was worth it.

    Rya, you might want to play Tales of the Abyss then. There is no real crafting element in it besides a shop that you don't ever have to use, that really gives you nothing impressive (other than a few unique weapons and Capacity Cores).

    Yeah that one wasn't released in Europe, though. =(
    Not for a console anyway.

    I really liked Tales of Phantasia, Destiny and Eternia (Destiny 2). Also liked Tales of Symphonia. Didn't like the catching aspect of Symphonia 2, but I still liked it. Vesperia I quit mainly due to the skills from equipment. It certainly had the best story but also the most annoying equip/crafting system I've ever seen in my life (worse than Vagrant Story!). You have to literary get all equips to get all abilities and you get a new one like every 5 minutes and everytime you have to rearrange your ability set, man that was so annoying.
    Graces was a lot better, but in the end this whole get crystal from weapon reforge thing got annoying too, not to mention you had to grind for hours to get the gald for it after a while.

    Let's see how Xillia will be like.
