Tales of Xilla, Tales of Graces, or Ni no Kuni?

I have a craving for a traditional non-FF JRPG after not playing one in years since Tales of Vesperia on 360 first came out.

Battle System and Story are the most important factors for me.... so of the 3 mentioned games which offers the best in these 2 categories?

Either Graces f or Xillia. I personally like Graces f more.

Ni no Kuni's story is fine, but the battle system is nowhere as good as Tales.

Battle System
Graces > Xillia > Ni no Kuni


Story
Ni no Kuni = Xillia > Graces

Haven't played Ni no Kuni, but IMO Graces > Xillia

^ Get hyped for THE RAID 2; sequel to one of the best action movies of the last decade!

Gun to my head, I'd pick Xillia. Xillia 2 is coming to the States soon as well, so it will have a continued story, unlike the other two.

Graces has Lineage and Legacies which wasn't in the original, which is kinda sorta its sequel.

I've never played Ni no Kuni, but Xillia was disappointing. It's a decent game, but no better than average. It's also probably the shortest mothership title in the series. Graces has some cheesy dialogue, but an awesome battle system and loveable characters.

Finished all 3, NnK is by far the best. Note that either Tales aren't better than Vesperia. Actually NnK and Vesperia are my fav two HD JRPGs. BTW, both Xilia & Graces don't have an overworld like Vesperia but NnK has.

Tales games are by far the better option Ni No Kuni's story constantly treats you like a 5 year old.

Got all the 3.

IMO Ni no Kuni is the best but I'm a huge Ghibli fan so It may have it's influence :P
