Tales of Xillia confirmed for US

Namco Bandai has finally confirmed that the latest game in its Tales series, Tales of Xillia, will make the trip to the US. The PlayStation 3 action-RPG was released in Japan last September, but until now the company has only dropped vague hints that it might make the trek westward.

Kotaku reports that the company made the formal announcement at its fan conference today, then clarified on Twitter that its westernization plans include the United States.

Last year, Namco Bandai promised "a lot more support" for the franchise. Then in March, the company trademarked the Xillia name for the US, giving strong indication that it was due here in the states.
