Tales of Xillia Collector's Edition

Namco Bandai has been announcing a slew of updates lately regarding Tales of Xillia‘s Western release, including official release dates for North America, Europe and Australia and all-new footage and screenshots. To cap it all off, they’ve also announced two special editions for the game. The Day One Edition is exclusive to Europe and Australia, while the Collector’s Edition (a.k.a. the Milla Maxwell Collector’s Edition) will be available in all three regions.

Today, Namco Bandai has also announced that GameStop has started taking online pre-orders for Tales of Xillia Collector’s Edition for $99.99 USD. Though some have claimed that you can also pre-order in-store, call your local GameStop to make sure before going out of your way to do so. However, Namco Bandai didn’t say how many copies would be made for North America. We also have no clue if this will be a GameStop exclusive or not, as Namco Bandai only mentions “participating retailers” on Facebook. We’ll have to wait for more information to be sure.

Meanwhile, Namco Bandai Games Europe has revealed how many copies of the Collector’s Edition will be made for Europe (10,000) and the cost to pre-order directly from them (£79.99/€99.99). In Australia, EB Games is taking pre-orders for the Collector’s Edition ($148.00 AUD) and the Day One Edition ($89.95 AUD, mislabeled “Limited Edition”). Unfortunately for Canadian fans, there is currently no listing for the Collector’s Edition at EB Games Canada, Future Shop, Best Buy Canada, or Amazon.ca.

The Collector’s Edition will come with the game, limited edition packaging, a limited edition Milla Maxwell figure, an artbook and a “special music selection CD.” Tales of Xillia will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 on August 6th in North America and August 9th in Europe and Australia.

  • I really hope this is still available after my next paycheck. I missed my preorder on the last of us collectors edition and had to buy it online and pay a ridiculous shipping fee. I could preorder now, but I need to save my money for something else this week.

    • Pyrotek85

      Well, preorders are usually only charged when they ship, which in this case will not be for a few months.

  • Hasn’t gone up on EBGames.ca yet. Any Canadians here know if it’ll be sold here, outside the States? The regular edition is available at both BB and FS; yet to show up on Amazon, though.

  • Vallen

    I really hope amazon.ca gets the LE or BB or FS—Would really suck if only EBgames got it in Canada (hate those assholes)

  • Just pre-ordered from my local GameStop.

  • Urgh…… That is… WAY more then I can spend… ugh and I really want the SE too…

  • Ibi Salmon

    Well this is certainly worth keeping an eye on.

  • I live in canada and pre order stuff from gamestop.com all the time (just pre-ordered this) whats the problem here? you just have to pay shipping.

  • I wonder if this will be just like Ni No Kuni’s colelctors edition where some merchants will buy a bunch.

  • @facebook-1406547248:disqus thanks for the advice! I got my preorder for Canada so I don’t have to search the web for it anymore.
