The latest in the Tales’ JRPG series might be getting a European release. Tales of Xillia was released in Japan last year with no hints of a localisation, especially as at the time the previous title, Tales of Graces F, had not been released in English either.
Last week, a year and a half after its release in Japan, Tales of Graces F got an English release in the US but no release yet set for Europe. Which makes it strange that Tales of Xillia has now been trademarked in Europe.
The PS3 exclusive titles will hopefully be hitting European PS3’s, especially when considering that Namco Bandai have previously stated their interest in bringing over more Tales’ titles. It is possible that the trademark is there as a placeholder in case of a release one day, but to spend the money on classification we’ll hope for fans of the series that there is intent to act upon it.
