    PSU - JRPG Tales of Xillia bringing mature characters and gorgeous art to PS3

    Read more: http://www.psu.com/a016201/JRPG-Tale...ous-art-to-PS3

    JRPG fans cheered in unison when Namco Bandai earlier this month confirmed that Tales of Xillia would come to the West in 2013, more than a year after its Japanese debut. Of course, the delay just might be worth it - an interview with series producer Hideo Baba over on the official PlayStation Blog highlights what sets the game apart from the competition.

    According to Baba, the difference (with regard to other franchises and other games in the Tales lineup) lies with its maturity. "I believe the game was acclaimed because of its maturity as the 15th anniversary title in Japan," he said. "The main audience in Japan remains [sic] continues to be the core . . . However, we know we need to acquire new fans while also keeping returning fans of the series invested in our new titles. The new character design is a big change for the series . . .

    As long as they don't try to westernize their games then they're all good. Xillia looks like another quality RPG so I'm looking forward to it!.

    Only thing that worries me is if it actually does get big in the West then Namco might decide to westernize it, so in a way I kinda hope it does well, profits enough for them to keep localising the games, but not better than how it does in Japan.

    If that ever happens then Namco might as well start shooting themselves in the foot. Tales of games are known for their quality stories and characters, changing that perspective to appeal to a "broader audience" will only bring ruin to the studio and potentially destroy it.

    I like the art style. And I know I'm probably asking a stupid question but is the combat turn based?

    Nope, it's more of an Action RPG. Semi-free movement and you can use all your abilities and burn through Mana in real-time.

    Awesome, loved the Tales games I've played so far. This is a day 1 from me. Hopefully the sequel will be brought across too

    Hideo Babba has said numerous times, the Tales series will never try the westernization formula and plans on developing the series with the Japanese audience in mind and then bringing it over for fans of that genre. SE needs to take notice, westernization is a cancer that is killing the Japanese gaming scene. It's why we end up with Front Mission as a generic third person shooter with regenerating health. But yeah, totally can't wait on Xillia.
