A new batch of English screenshots for Tales of Xillia have been released for this month.
In addition, Namco Bandai Europe has announced that, in addition to the expected German, French and English text versions of the game, they will now also include Spanish and Italian, giving the European release five different language versions.
Note: Screenshots updated with proper HD ones courtesy of Namco Bandai UK. Thanks!
You may also notice from the screenshots a few name changes. Tipo has turned into "Teepo", and apparently the Ark Noa are now known as "Exodus".
Tales of Xillia will be released for the PS3 in the US and Europe sometime 2013.

Yes I did mean to say "didn't say". My keys weren't responding apparently. And true, but I stand by my point.
@North: Oh. Hrm, in that case, once you get the error message, try pressing back on your browser. Your message -should- still be there, and the security code should have refreshed to a new one, then try again. I'm really sorry for the inconvenience! I'm not entirely sure why it happens, either. The system we're using is practically dead since it's developer has given up on it, so we've been taking time in trying to move to a more suitable one that won't just die on us one day or something.
@Let "I did say I was dismissing them, but it's very annoying and distracting if you put an entire post in all caps."
I really hope you meant to type "didn't say". And as I said, yes, it is not the best way to get a message through but we can't decide how others should type their posts on the internet.
And about the security code, in my case it's not because open tabs because I never have more than one news post open on AC at once (I comment so rarely here so I don't usually need to have more tabs open of this site). I hope it will get fixed with the new system, I'll keep on copy/paste-ing my messages until I get the code rightxD

I did say I was dismissing them, but it's very annoying and distracting if you put an entire post in all caps.
For people with problems with the security code, please take note of the following:
One possible reason the code might not work is if you have more than one specific news page of AC open - that would mean there are two security codes generated. The system can only process and take one at a time, so if you were about to comment and you have another news post open in another tab or something, close that other tab first, refresh the news post you want to comment on, and then try again.
I apologize for the problems with the codes. We'll be moving to a new CMS/system soon so that should hopefully fix things up...
Now that I'm at it, are people fine with the DISQUS commenting system...?
@CP ur right i think that's not right .. i am a realllly huge fan for the japanese voice actors cuz their works is professional and all that and VAs in general .. and i always want it in tales cuz i see games is not on the same level as tales and they have the option but not playing tales for voices ?????? of course not we just want it and it will be awesome but enjoying tales and understand everything is the most important and the engilsh voices for tales is always good there are some are not that good but overall is really good >> sure thing i don't want to play an awesome game with horrible voices like arc rise fantasia >< .. cuz the character voice is one of the most important things to love the character and know it right as all big creators says and as everyone says .. i played every single tales game in engilsh and i love tales for everything not the voices for itself that's weird for anyone to don't buy an awesome game that u love for something like that .. they love the game or voices ? it didn't even cross my mind if there are jap voices then that's amazing if it's not it's ok i want to play and destroy tales game <3 .. the only tales i played in japanese and oooh how much i loved playing with the awesome voices and all .. is rebirth and destiny remake cuz there are trans for the game >> thanks to lanyn <3 .. and i can't wait for xillia <3 <3 and i am sure that the voices will be really good i love graces works .. and if the fans wants a dual audio make it for them it will make the sales even better and they all know that .. that fan tales want the original voices .. anyway good day to everyone

Just wondering, since Tales of Xillia is going to be localized in English, who do you think will voice which character? Here's who I believe should voice whom: Jude- Yuri Lowenthal Milla- Stephanie Sheh (her voice similar to Natalia from Tales of the Abyss) Alvin- Troy Baker Leia- Wendee Lee (while sounding similar to Haruhi Suzumiya from the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) Elise- Rebecca Forstadt (she reminds me of Nunnally from Code Geass) Rowen- Michael Forest (he reminds me of Arakawa from the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) Gaius- Johnny Yong Bosch Musee- Kate Higgins

@North: It's cool, I'm sure Abby would want to know concerns with how the site works. I've had a few instances where the security code didn't want to work for me either. I've just never said anything because I have to fix things enough while typing that I thought it was just me.
My comments are probably coming across kinda badly as well. I'm sorry about that. I actually edited my last one several times because I thought I was sounding too harsh and it still kinda sounds...a bit harsh. D: (You're supposed to be a moderator CP, cool down. Cool down.)
@Majin3 "If they can't put together a product I can enjoy then I obviously won't buy it."
This made me wonder... If in an English release there is the voice acting only in English as it has been in the series till now you consider the release a "a product I can't enjoy". Isn't that a bit weird reason to say you won't enjoy a Tales game? As cutepresea said why would you bother with the English release if it's not worth it to you without dual audio? I can't see the logic here:/
Applying the Japanese audio isn't so simple as just putting it in there, it costs additional money and since the localization itself is pretty expensive (especially now that they are adding more languages to the european release) they would need some very heavy reasons to put it in there. Who knows, maybe they want to surprise us by adding it but I doubt it.
@Lloydo-Sama: Somehow I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one with that problem, but I wonder what it could be?
And I'm sorry if my first comment sounded a bit rude, I know it's not the site's fault for the security code to act like this especially if it's working for others just fine, just wanted to mention it

@Majin: Just because your opinion is that the Japanese voices are better doesn't mean that not buying the English version of a game you're interested in just because it lacks them isn't stupid. I don't care if you prefer the Japanese voices. Sometimes I do. But I'm not gonna complain on an article aimed at the English fanbase when I do! Especially on a fansite run by people who can't do anything about it!
I don't even care if people aren't happy with the name/spelling changes. Heck, I found the change to "Elize" a bit strange myself since "Elise" is a perfectly valid name, though that's how the Japanese name was pronounced so at least I know it should sound the same.
(And just to let you know, saying "opinion" doesn't save you from criticism. Sorry, but that's how things work. Especially since it wasn't even the opinion itself that I was commenting on.)
And I'm glad you at least import if you so love the Japanese voices, but if the news doesn't even apply to you then why are you even commenting on it? And if you already play them in Japanese and prefer them in Japanese, why are you even bothering with the English releases, that have you know...never had Japanese audio other than Tales of Destiny (and that was all it had). Go play the Japanese version if you have it. That's what I'm doing right now!
Me? I'm a HUGE fan of voice acting in general...it's what I wanted to do when I was a kid. Give me some different voices and I'll play the game like it's brand new, even if I have already beaten it in another language. Bring this thing on.
Now back to what I said earlier...if we could do anything about dual audio and it didn't cost anything, we would. Trust me, it'd save us a bit of money and I'm all for options. The more options the better. However, getting the Japanese voices involves extra licensing costs that I'm sure those at Namdai themselves aren't willing to spend right now. They could always prove us wrong though. I'm just irritated people are complaining about voices we haven't even heard yet.
