Imagine for a moment that you’re Namco Bandai. Got it? Right. Now watch this footage of Tales of Xillia and ask yourself, can you really deny this to Western gamers?

Tales of Xillia is the latest in Namco’s long-running and highly-praised Tales series, which has been very patchily localised over the years, with some entries never making it out of Japan.

This one’s due on Japanese PlayStation 3 consoles in September, so fingers crossed for a translation.

Seen in the trailer below are pre-order bonus constumes for the two main characters, based on those of previous games’ heroes.

Thanks, CVG.
