Tales of Xillia Collector's Edition revealed

Launching this week is Tales of Xillia, part of Namco’s critically acclaimed Tales series. The gaming giant have revealed two limited edition packages of the game; a Collector’s Edition, as well as a ‘first run’ Day One Edition. Namco have described both editions as “very rare,” and have indicated that both will only be produced in limited quantities.

 

 

The collector’s edition includes a 21.5 (inc base) figurine of protagonist Milia Maxwell, as well as bonus in-game content. The package also includes a hardback art book and the game’s original soundtrack. The Day One edition also includes both the art book and soundtrack, and is priced to match the standard retail version.

 

 

Tales of Xillia was a highly successful release in Japan, being the most pre-ordered game in the series so far and topping charts during its first week of sales. Impressively, the game received a near perfect score from esteemed gaming publication Famitsu, who awarded the title a 39/40 score; Famitsu has only offered twenty games a perfect score in its 27 year history. Reviewers were quoted as saying that developers had “thought of everything,” praising the game’s narrative development and combo system.

 

Tales of Xilia will hit shelves on August 9th, with the collectors edition available from GAME and ShopTo, as well as via the developer themselves. The Day One edition will be sold from major retailers, but Namco are offering pre-order bonuses for purchases from GAME.

    Oh god it’s happening! Not just the game release (which is hype!) but the trend of multiple editions. Before long, the west will follow the “buy five copies” rule that has not really been coined yet. But seems pretty apparent amongst many otaku.

    One for yourself
    One to look at / keep boxed
    One for on the go
    One to share with a friend
    One in reserve

    Considering an otaku recently purchased 12 copies of Puella Magi Madoka Magica Movie 1&2, I wouldn’t be surprised that if we took to that trend, western otaku could save the economy :D

    This has also been a real temptation for myself with CD purchases, since they’re usually cheaper than the often larger price for games. It just isn’t the same without cling film ._.
