Namco is having a killer year coming up for 2013.  Along with the forthcoming Level-5 role-playing adventure Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, the company has just announced another epic that’s sure to get the attention of fans of its long-running Tales series.

Tales of Xillia will introduce a new cast of characters, as well as a compelling new story that will draw players in for hours at a time, with the kind of gameplay that will draw you in, just as the previous games in the series did.

Unfortunately, Namco has only announced that the game is coming to our shores, but revealed very few other details.  They didn’t announce intended platforms (though the PlayStation 3 is a definite), nor any sort of release date…though 2013 seems like a fair guess.  All we know is that it’ll make a huge impact on Namco’s fiscal year in gaming, and get this – there’s a sequel already in the works in Japan.  Guess they must be doing something right…

Look for more details on Tales of Xillia in the months ahead.
