Report: Namco Bandai sets US release date for Tales of Xillia

Tales of Xillia – the 13th flagship title in the Tales franchise – is heading to North America on August 6th, Namco Bandai has revealed.

Gematsu reports producer Hideo Baba revealed a summer launch window for the PS3-exclusive JRPG’s arrival stateside, and the site later updated to the exact date following Namco Bandai’s announcement at a recently held media event.

No word on a Europe launch as of yet.

On a related note, Baba also told Kotaku that there are no current plans for Tales games on Wii U, PS4, or the next-gen Xbox. He added that Vita remakes for Tales of Hearts R and Tales of Innocent R aren’t in the cards due to Vita’s lukewarm reception in North America.

"Unfortunately, at this present time we don’t have any plans to release any of the Vita titles. One of the main reasons is unfortunately the PlayStation Vita is doing relatively poorly in North America, so it’s one of those things that if the numbers increased considerably, then it’s something we could consider."
