Tales of Xillia Trailer Shows Off Lairy Teens in English

Some new English-dubbed gameplay of the eagerly awaited Tales of Xillia has travelled online, presumably prompting debates about whether or not a dub is needed at all. Fans of the series will already know that a lot of the previous English voice work could have been better, and admittedly we don’t get much to judge here.

Nevertheless, we don’t think that it sounds too bad. Yet. Are you fond of dubbing when it comes to Japanese games? Take a look at the gameplay trailer and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

As someone who's not really a fan of JRPGs, this looks pretty fun.

EDIT: Also, how epic is that high-five at 1:05?

@get2sammyb Not a fan of JRPG's? You're missing out on so much awesomeness. Back on topic, Tales of Xillia is looking so amazing! May even end up being my favourite game in the series if the trailers shown so far are anything to go by.

@Blaze Unfortunately, I just don't have time to dig into one. I might give this a whirl, though. The combat system seems really fun.



Blaze said:

@get2sammyb Yeah, combat in Tales games is always fast-paced, I always like to think of the combat as a more tactical Street Fighter. Sort of. :3 It's a nice change of pace from normal JRPG combat; that's for sure.

I loved the combat in Tales of Graces f. To be honest, the main reason I play the Tales series is for the battles - a good story and cast are just bonuses.

That said, I can handle turn based combat as long as it's well done and not repetitive. Games like Shin Megami Tensei do slower battle systems extremely well, for example.

@get2sammyb All the Tales games have this gameplay but each one has a little twist.
Example: Tales of symphonia 2 monster recruting system

Same here, thats the main draw to most RPGs to me. I've never really understood the complaints about things like voice acting, but thats probably why. I never go into a game expecting (or wanting) amazing voices or writing.

@get2sammyb If you want to give JRPGs a whril the Tales series is probably a great place to start. Save points are fairly common, theres usually one at every inn and two in dungeons (one mid-way through, one before the boss's room) making short sessions fairly easy.

Also, glad I'm not the only one who thought that high-five was awesome, those kind of scenes are one of the reasons I love the Tales series.

Why is that blonde girl picking her nose? If this were Warioware she would have won.

I'm not much of a JRPG fan myself, but I'm all in for this as much as the awesome high-five shown in the trailer if to believe from the game. =]
