Tales of Xillia 2 development in “final stage”

Hideo Baba wants to bring Xillia 2 overseas.

Development on Tales of Xillia 2 is nearing completion, a Famitsu.com Comic-Con interview Tales series producer Hideo Baba has revealed. 

Asked if Baba’s recent time spent overseas (at the Japan Expo and Comic-Con) has impacted development of the game, he said that though there is a time difference, he has been receiveing reports from his staff every day, and the game is now in its “final stage.”

Tales of Xillia is coming overseas, but will Tales of Xillia 2 follow suit? According to Baba, there are no plans yet, but the fans would be upset if the sequel did not see release, so he would like to deliver as much as possible.

The majority of the interview was regarding the series’ overseas expansion. Baba hopes that the opportunity to bring Tales games westward continues to increase.
