The next announced western release for the series is Tales of Xillia, which already has a sequel in Japan.

A plethora of new screens of Namco Bandai’s PS3-exclusive Tales of Xillia 2 show off sharply-dressed ladies and gentlemen kicking seven bells out of all manner of nasties. Andriasang has more than three dozen screens for your eyes to drink-in, amongst them is this chap who puts me in mind of a young Jaeger from Valkyria Chronicles.
Tales of Xillia 2 launches exclusively on PS3 in September in Japan and in 2013 for Europe and North America.

All Games Beta has a Famitsu scan showing some artwork for the next Tales game. It’s a new “mothership” release which asks you if you’d be willing to smash the world for a girl. Who wouldn’t. Namco Bandai’s Tales franchise spans 14 core releases, plus about 20 assorted spin-offs and remakes as well as cross-media dealios, but is only patchily localised, so cross your fingers.

If you’re a big fan of Namco Bandai’s Tales series, you’re probably already quite familiar with the import and fan translation scene – since only about half of the lauded RPGs ever make it outside Japan. In which case, the likelihood of a Japanese-only release won’t stop you checking out this DLC for Tales of Graces F and then nosebleed-ing so hard you pass out
Dressing up the Graces F team in classic Tales characters’ gear? It’s a dream come true!
