Tales of Xillia — Most Pre-ordered Tales Game Ever

Yes, the swimsuit has been revealed.

Namco Bandai previously hinted that Tales of Xillia was on track to see the number of pre-orders for the series itself. Now, Tales series producer Makoto Yoshizumi has confirmed it via Twitter. Just two weeks ( yes, two weeks only! ) ahead of release, and Tales of Xillia is officially  the most pre-ordered Tales game ever for PS3.

Though Yoshizumi did not mention the amount of pre-orders the game received, we know that in July, the game had already topped 80,000 number of pre-orders! Imagine how much higher it is now from July! Retailer promotion materials from Namco Bandai listed an expectation of 200,000 pre-orders, which is significantly higher than the number of pre-orders for Tales of Vesperia which had a 140,000 expectation.

With 200,000 pre-orders of the game, it would already have sold near the equivalent of the Xbox 360 version of Tales of Vesperia and half that of the PS3 version. Tales of Xillia is due for release on September 8.

On top of that, Namco Bandai has also released the swimsuits, which will most likely increase the number of pre-orders. I wonder, how many pre-orders will there be for Tales of Xillia?
