Tales of Xillia Sells Over 500,000 Copies; International Release a High Probability

September 14, 2011Written by Jonathan Leack

The latest game from the Tales series, Tales of Xillia, released just a week ago, and despite being available only in Japan, it has already garnered a massive number of sales. While great news for Namco Bandai, it could be even better news for RPG fans who live outside of Japan.

The latest Media Create sales chart places Tales of Xillia as the top selling game of the week by a large margin. Surprisingly, the JRPG has managed 525,605 sales in just seven days, with plenty more to come during the holiday season.

Selling over 500k in Japan is no easy task, so Namco Bandai is ripe with success right now. Many gamers in Europe and North America have been awaiting a PS3 release from the Tales series for some time, but with these impressive figures, there’s a good chance we’ll finally see what is currently one of the biggest hits in Japan finally make an international debut.
