According to the latest issue of Japanese adult magazine Otona Fami, you’ll be dropping as much time into Tales of Xillia as you will into huge, sandbox-style RPGs like Skyrim or Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Word on the street has it that the story itself will take you 50 hours, and, if you go for all the side content, you’re looking at upwards of 100 hours of playtime. Imagine that, a JRPG that can keep up with the best of ’em. Now, if only it would be localized for the West. Regardless, you can import it and then spend the better part of the fall playing it and trying to figure everything out in Japanese. That sounds fun, right?
The game is looking pretty great, being the first true built-for-HD iteration of the Tales franchise, coming exclusively to the PS3. Over on this side of the Pacific we’ll have Tales of Graces F on the PS3 to look forward to as we move into the first part of next year.
