Tales of Xillia Coming This August In Japan

Up until now, fans waiting for news about Tales of Xillia's release date in Japan have only had a vague TBA 2011 release date given to them by Namco Bandai. According to a breaking leak, fans might have the date they have been waiting for --- and it's quite soon, indeed.

The game will utilize the contrast between light and shadow, which will lead to the game having a different art style direction than Vesperia's anime-style graphics or Graces's watercolor-style graphics (it could be more of a hand-painted or oil painting-like feel if the concept artwork is any indication). Baba stated that when he saw some of the concept artwork images running on actual hardware he was very impressed.

According to the leak on Hobby Channel, Tales of Xillia will be released this August in Japan. The date follows Tales of Vesperia's release date, which was the first HD title built from the ground up on next generation consoles. Namco Bandai hasn't officially acknowledge this leak, however.

No word on a North American or European release has been announced at this time. Western Tales fans can look forward to Tales of Graces f and Tales of the Abyss (3DS) in the meantime, however.

UPDATE: Added the original source of the leak.

UPDATE 2: Hobby Channel has removed the text in question, but JaySonic, a Japanese blog, was able to capture the text in an image, which can be found below.
