"The “Tales Of” series has always been successful in Japan, thanks to the anime themes the series has always pushed during the years. The Namco Bandai series has struggled a bit more in the west: sporadic releases with localization jobs chopping content out of the North American and European released didn’t do justice to the game. The series has started getting some recognition thanks to Tales Of Symphonia, originally released on Nintendo Gamecube, the first game in the series featuring fully 3D graphics. Since then more games have made it to the west, with each one marking a slight improvements in sales. During the current generation almost all of the Tales Of games released on home consoles have been released in the West, with the first Tales Of Xillia coming in 2013. Tales Of Xillia 2 was released in Japan a couple months ago: did the game fix some of the first game’s problems or is it just a quick cash-in? Let’s find out. Just a warning: if you don’t want to be spoiled about Tales Of Xillia’s plot stop reading since there may be spoilers."
