With the success of Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch, Namco Bandai has proven that Japanese role playing games have a strong following in Europe and that a well developed title can be successful on the market if promoted the right way.
Tales Of Xillia will be coming to Europe and North America during this year and Namco Bandai hopes to make the game as successful as Ni No Kuni: the game was originally released on September 2011 and it was released to celebrate the series 15th Anniversary.
While localization work still seems to be underway, we have received some interesting info straight from Namco Bandai: on the Official Namco Bandai French Site the publisher answers some fans’ questions regarding the game. One fans asked about a possible dual audio option for the game and Namco Bandai confirmed that the game will only include the English dub.
The publisher apologizes to gamers since they said there was a chance that the Japanese voice overs could be included: Namco Bandai was forced to make this decision in order to devote all resources to critical issues directly released to the European release of the game, most likely referring to the multiple languages localization.
Tales Of Xillia still doesn’t have a set release date: some rumors state that the game will be released this Spring or early Summer.
