As confirmed via the Tales facebook page. Though the CE picture shows the PEGI rating, so I wonder if this is to be a simultaneous release for both US and Europe. EDIT: OK, I think the US version is to be released on the 19th as expected.
So... anyone on here even care? I'm sure @sparky_buzzsaw is probably excited at this news at least. Though as for myself I couldn't even be bothered completing the first Xillia. And while the sequel is often cited as being much, much better, it still features that same bland art style and the combat is assuredly very similar, which is one aspect that just didn't draw me in like most Tales games have in the past.
Frankly I'm much more interested in seeing how Zestiria's going to shape up, since it's to have the guy responsible for Graces F's combat system. And for everything that sucks about Graces F (and there's a lot) I could at least say without reservation that it has some utterly fantastic combat.
Now if only they would consider releasing the PS3 version of Vesperia as well one day, given the increased prominence of English-speaking Tales games recently. Hell, this year alone we've got three Tales release, with this, Symphonia Chronicles, and that Tales R vita one.
