The lights are on
The Tales franchise may not get as much love as Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest, but it’s proven to be a worthy series capable of delivering fun RPG experiences.
For fans anxiously awaiting the next game in the series, Tales of Xillia, developer Namco Bandai has announced some good news: a collector’s edition and a launch date. The PlayStation 3 exclusive will release on August 6 of this year, and will be available in a standard $59.99 version, as well as the $99.99 collector’s edition.
Though pricier, the collector’s edition offers a limited edition Milla Maxwell figure (shown above), an art book, and a special music selection CD. Give our preview a read to see what the next iteration in the series is all about.
Will any of you pick up the collector’s edition? It’s certainly better than what was offered in Tales of Vesperia’s premium edition.
I luv the Tales series!!!
Doll to small to bang.... I'll pass on the collector's edition.
Tales of is actually tied with Final Fantasy for my favorite game franchise of all time. I can strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys RPGs, JRPGs, and even action games like God of War due to the great combo systems, and puzzle games like The Legend of Zelda for some of the awesome dungeons in the series. I can't wait for this, Xilia and X (my favorite FF ever)/X-2 HD are going to make my year!
Can anyone speak to the quality of the figurine? That is the crux if I buy the CE or not.
What do you mean, it's better? It's the same damn thing, with a steel case instead of a figure.
I personally hate when they put in figures, because I don't collect them. I'd pay a little extra for the other stuff, but the figure skyrockets the price and I no longer care.
Well, time to buy a ps3
I will buy this game.
Yes... Yes, I am getting it. I am also buying it for someone else whom I am sure cannot afford to buy one right now. I am excited, very excited! I have not owned a Tales game before but have loved the demos that I have gotten the privilege to play.
damn't I'm gonna be spending alot of money this summer
Man that collector's edition is mighty tempting. but I'll definitely have to pass on it. Too many bills and a family to support. However I will be getting the standard edition down the line at some point.
Looks like I'll be snagging this CE! I do enjoy the Tales series.
Now is on my list.
I really wish they would localise Tales of Vesperia for PS3 in Europe. JRPGs are surprisingly rare these days.
I'm just going to go with the regular.. and I can't wait for this!!!!
enough time to buy another PS3. wohooo.
