The first Xillia game is exactly one month away from release in North America, but that isn’t stopping Namco Bandai from announcing an English localization for its sequel. During the Japan Expo in Paris today, the Japanese company made the official announcement that Tales of Xillia 2 will be heading to both North America and Europe sometime next year.
No further details were released, but that’s a given considering the game has been out in Japan since November of last year. Regardless, this is a good sign considering that Namco Bandai wasn’t too sure on the future of the Tales series outside of Japan just a couple of years ago. We all thought they were awaiting the sales numbers for Xillia before green-lighting the sequel, but it’s good to know they’re here to please the fans more than anything else.
