Like Tales of Graces f before it, the forthcoming latest iteration of Namco-Bandai’s long-running jRPG series Tales of Xilla will launch with a special Day One Edition.

When it released last August, Graces f came with a paperback artbook, soundtrack CD, behind the scenes disc and various DLC – I even made an unboxing video about it! This August, Xillia will be upon us (August 9th, to be exact), and we’re getting the same treatment this time – minus the making of disc, by the looks of things.

The Day One Edition was first uncovered by enterprising posters on NeoGAF, and then picked up by Operation Rainfall (both linked at the bottom of this piece), but it’s now been confirmed by Namco-Bandai themselves, alongside an extra-special Milla Maxwell Collectors Edition, which you can see below.

The Day One Edition will effectively be the standard edition, as was the case with both Graces f and Dark Souls, and the Collectors Edition will be priced at £85.99/€99.99 and includes a 100-page artbook (expanded from the Day One’s 50-page book), the OST disc, the DLC and a 21.5cm figure of main character Milla Maxwell. It will be available in the following countries: France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the United Kingdom.

I think it’ll be the standard Day One Edition for me. Much as I love a nice art book (and the expanded version in the Milla Edition is tempting), it’s a bit out of my price range. Plus, I just got something yesterday…

Who else is in? And what edition are you going for? Here’s a short Milla battle video to get you in the mood. The animation looks lovely and fluid.

Tales of Xillia releases exclusively for PS3 on August 9th 2013.
