Tales Of Xillia Hits 500k In First Week
Well, at least we know the franchise is still popular in Japan.
Tales of Xillia has only been available in the Land of the Rising Sun since September 8 and yet, Namco Bandai has managed to sell over 500,000 copies in that first week.
According to Tales Union, the latest RPG effort from Namco sold 525,605 units, which makes it the best-selling game of last week. JRPG fans have been hoping to hear word of a North American and European release but as of yet, there is no evidence that Tales of Xillia will break Japan's boundaries. The good news is that past iterations have found their way to the US and PAL territories, so maybe it's only a matter of time...
It would probably help if the game turned out to be a huge success in Japan. Even if that was expected, Namco might be more inclined to bring it to other audiences, you know?
