Tales of Xillia 2 Coming West

OcelotOcelot is not declawedRPGamer Staff
edited July 2013 in Latest Updates
It is becoming increasingly difficult for Tales fans to claim that Namco Bandai feeds on their tears. Tales of Xillia 2 will arrive in the West just a year after Tales of Xillia.

Very Special Tales Thread Rule:

No griping about unlocalized Tales games here.

    Thats pretty cool news, gives me more then enough time to beat the first and then get the second one.

    Cool news I suppose. Some people say good things about Xillia 2, but I just have to wonder how it stands up a sequel. Hopefully ToX2 is of higher quality than other sequels of this type have been thus far.

    This pleases me. Soon all our Tales-related dreams will come true possibly?

    My excitement is tempered until I actually play the first one (and the poor pattern of any sequel), but sounds like good news specifically and great news on a larger Tales scope.

    Eh, figured this was going to happen. ToX2 does a better job of [DATA REDACTED] than say, FFXIII-2.

    Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

    Can't wait to play the 1st one, and now we already know the 2nd is coming too. This is good news indeed.

    I figured it would be this, but this, it's surprising that they're not even waiting to see how Xillia 1 does before announcing this one. Good signs.

    They probably have a pretty good idea based on preorders

    Is this the year of RPGs? It's been a good year for gaming.
    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    GREAT! I'll skip Xillia and buy Symphonia Collection. Aw, what the hell, I'll skip that one and just get Xillia 2. Or maybe i should skip that one and wait for their PS4 game?

    Well, I know I'll be getting this game when it comes. There's only been one tales game that I've played that I didn't really like (Legendia). I do have to play Abyss though. With Symphonia collection coming it seems like every 6 months or so I'll get a Tales game to play. :)

    Definitely a good year to be a Tales fan. I'll be buying this and Symphonia HD and I'll buy them in any collectors versions they might have.
    What I have seen and done to achieve my position defies belief. What I am capable of and will be party to in order to retain it would chill your soul.

    Definitely seems like Namco-Bandai are loading up on the Tales releases in the West. Seems like a smart idea. There's definitely room for a "major series" JRPG with regular releases with Final Fantasy becoming few and far between and other series taking their time. There's a market there to grab.

    Kind of expected it but still awesome! Will probably skip the Symphonia HD collection though. Beat the first one on the GC years ago twice and the Wii sequel was horrible.

    Sweet. With 4 Tales games now, I'm as good as sold on finally getting a PS3. Unless this Gaikai think will allow me to get the games digitally and play on a PS4. I wish we knew more about that.
