Let's hope it goes a long way to have enough copies of ToX sell so we can get ToX2, which I hear from all accounts is much improved.

Still excited for ToX1 however, my next big JRPG purchase after Ni no Kuni unless something comes up between them.

Wasn't Xillia considered something of a failure even by the fanbase? Kind of odd for them to advertise that.

It is still a good game in it's own right, but people mainly criticized it for lack of content.
Most still enjoyed it nonetheless.
Somewhat underwhelming compared to past ones considering it was touted as a 15th Anniversary title.

It had stellar sales anyways.

And Tales of Xillia 2 definitely improves everything about it.

Are they still showing anything on the Time Square screens? I mean, seriously, I work going to and from Manhattan. I work in transportation and we drop people off at 53rd, so on my break, I could walk down there and check it out...... but I don't want to waste time if there isn't. Kind of funny I see this NOW as I am on my way HOME from New York now. Pretty cool knowing exactly where he was now too, since I never been to Manhattan prior to my job, and I see that apple building almost every day.

Xillia is one of the best selling Tales games ever. It has outsold almost every single other game in the series worldwide..and it has only been released in one region.

It's certainly not a sales failure - and it makes sense that they would attempt to advertise it more in the West if they feel they have a hit on their hands.

My question is why won't NB just announce xillia 2 for the west and its out end of next year, I just don't understand why they are dragging there feet, you have the fanbase here in the west and even Baba said he is trying to connect with the west more.

Cause nothing is set in stone regarding Xillia 2, especially if Xillia does not sell well enough here.
And we definitely wouldn't see it end of next year, likely Spring 2014.
