Tales of Xillia Ships 500,000 Out the Gate and 600,000 in Day Two

In September 9th, Tales of Xillia has crossed the 500,000 mark in shipments, Namco Bandai announced today. The game was released just yesterday.

Word of the game's success already came ahead of release. Two weeks ago, producer Makoto Yoshizumi revealed that the game had become the most pre-ordered Tales game ever.

Anecdotally, retailers have been reporting strong early sales, with many even claiming sellouts.

In its statement announcing the shipment figure today, Namco Bandai attributed the success in part to expectations due to this being the series' 15th anniversary, and to the variety of collaborations it held with the likes of Ayumi Hamasaki and Namco Namja Town.

As for September 10th, the numbers keep on rising for Tales of Xillia. Namco Bandai revealed yesterday that the game had topped the 500,000 shipment mark in its first day. Mainichi is reporting that the game shipped an additional 100,000 units the next day.

So how much of that massive 600,000 unit shipment actually sold through to gamers? Retailer blogs are reporting strong sales for the game, but for specifics we'll have to wait for Media Create's sales figures late
next week.
