Following North America release date leak for Tales of Xillia, Namco Bandai has officially verified that date and announced the European release date, alongside some special collector's and Day 1 editions.
Tales of Xillia tells the story of Jude Mathis, an intelligent medical student studying at the hospital in the metropolitan city of Fennmont, and Milla Maxwell, a mysterious woman who is capable of summoning all types of elemental sprits. Players will be able to choose either of the two protagonists when they begin adventuring through the world of Rieze Maxia, a land where humans and spirits live together in peace. Together with the help of a diverse cast of characters, Jude and Milla's paths intersect as they set off on a quest to stop the kingdom of Rashugal from draining the world of all of its mana.
The Collector's Editions will retail for £79.99 in Europe and $99.99 in North America. It comes with a Milla Maxwell figure complete with a custom base, the game, a sampler OST and a 100-page artbook all inside an oversized custom box. The Day 1 Edition, which is exclusive to Europe, will be available during the initial release and includes the same items as the Collector's Edition minus the figure and the artbook only being 52 pages.
Tales of Xillia will be released on August 6 in North America and August 9 in Europe. The publisher also released some new screenshots and trailers, which can be found below.
