From the Japan Expo event, NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S. today announced that it will be bringing Tales of Xillia™ to EMEA and Australasia exclusively for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

Tales of Xillia will be available across EMEA and Australasia in 2013.
“The recent success for last autumn’s release of Tales of the Abyss™ and the anticipated release of Tales of Graces™ f and its exclusive European Edition has helped make localizing Tales of Xillia for the western market one of the easiest decisions we have ever made,” said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Publishing for NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S. “The latest game in this prolific series gives gamers a brand new world and cast of characters to adventure with along with its celebrated battle system that has yet to be rivaled by other Japanese RPGs.”

The system allows for real-time movement and attacks, giving the player a more tactile role in the midst of fights. The battle system in Tales of Xillia has been upgraded to let two characters combine their attacks to utilize devastating dual-character attack, letting fans strategize the best party setup for their style of play.
