Tales of Xillia is the Most Pre-ordered Tales Game Ever
Two weeks ahead of release, and the latest Tales game has already topped all previous titles.
Namco Bandai previously hinted that Tales of Xillia was on track to see record pre-orders for the series. Now Tales series producer Makoto Yoshizumi has confirmed it via Twitter. Two weeks ahead of release, and the PS3 title is officially the most pre-ordered Tales game ever.
Yoshizumi did not share the number of pre-orders the game has received. However, back in July, the game had already topped 80,000 pre-orders. Retailer promotional materials from Namco Bandai listed an expectation of 200,000 pre-orders, which would put the game above the 140,000 pre-orders for the PS3 version of Vesperia.
With 200,000 pre-orders, the game would already have sold near the equivalent of the Xbox 360 version of Vesperia and half that of the PS3 version.
Tales of Xillia is due for release on September 8.
