After spending more than 150+ hours on Tales of Graces F, I am getting ready to move on to my next Tales series. Tales of Xillia (テイルズオブエクシリア) got my vote for the next Tales series that I am going to play. It was released back on 2011 during the 15th anniversary of Tales series and some of you probably remember the teaser video back on December 2010.

There is no localization announced yet for Tales of Xillia, however, there are many rumours out there saying that there’s a plan for localization. At this rate, it will be localized by 2015 based on when Tales of Graces was released originally on Wii in 2009 and the localized version on PS3 in 2012. Excited ?

This will be my first RPG in Japanese that I will ever play and first five minutes into the game, it was intimidating enough since I don’t understand story at all. Hopefully with little of patient, I can understand little bit here and there which ultimately helps me learning Japanese. It will be a challenge for sure.

I bought the game used for $40.00 + shipping from eBay which is not a bad deal considering how much the new game cost (~$100). It came in perfect condition and feels like new except without the plastic cover.

What’s your first RPG in Japanese that you’ve ever played ? Did it motivate you more to learn Japanese ?
