Possible Tales of Xillia Anime Adaption? – UPDATED NOV 28

Seven Net Shopping, the online retail site of the 7-Eleven convenience store chain in Japan, listed the January 2012 issue of Kadokawa Group Publishing‘s Viva Tales of Magazine, and the listing has “Tales of Xillia the Animation” written in the issue’s contents. The issue will ship on November 28.

Namco Bandai Games has yet to announce an anime adaptation of this role-playing game for the PlayStation 3 console. About 740,000 copies of Tales of Xilia shipped in Japan in the first half of the 2012 fiscal year since September 8. About 526,000 copies were sold in the game’s first week, making it one of the top five best-selling games in Japan this year so far.

Update:

ANN obtained the January 2012 issue of Kadokawa Group Publishing‘s Viva Tales of Magazine and confirmed that it is not announcing an anime based on Namco Bandai Games’ Tales of Xillia game on Monday. While the issue does discuss the recently released role-playing game for the PlayStation 3 console (as well as new animation footage that Production I.G is creating for January’s Tales of Innocence Rgame), it does not mention an anime.

Seven Net Shopping, the online retail site of the 7-Eleven convenience store chain in Japan, listed “Tales of Xillia the Animation” in the contents of this issue. However, it later removed the “Tales of Xillia the Animation” text from its listing. Namco Bandai Games has yet to announce an anime adaptation of this game.
