Well this is a bit weird. As spotted by ResetEra user manustany, Swiss retailer CeDe has a listing for Tales of Xillia 2… On PlayStation 4. Could Bandai Namco be porting the PlayStation 3 title to Sony’s current-gen hardware?
As we all know, online retailer listings are far from official confirmation that something exists, but there’s no denying the fact that so many titles end up being leaked just like this. Plus, it’s not strictly the listing that we find strange — it’s that only Tales of Xillia 2 is mentioned. Why would Bandai Namco port a direct sequel to PS4 without the original Tales of Xillia?
This kind of leads us to believe that if this listing is indeed true, then it could be some sort of double pack which includes both games. That’d certainly make a lot more sense, especially seeing as the two titles were already bundled at one point on PS3.
For those totally out of the loop, Tales of Xillia is widely regarded as a solid Tales title with a great battle system — some even consider it to be one of the strongest entries in the series. Tales of Xillia 2, meanwhile, was somewhat experimental in its storytelling, and it was quite a divisive release as a result.
Would you take PS4 ports of these games? Don’t ask for Tales of Vesperia in the comments section below.
