The mysterious PS3 Tales of title has now been formally announced by Namco Bandai as Tales of Xillia ... because apparently the existing Tales of titles weren't ridiculous enough. So is that pronounced "Sillia," "Shillia," "Chillia" or "Ex-illia?"

Andriasang reports the game will be launch sometime in 2011 on PS3 under the direction of Anana Inoki (Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World) and Naoto Miyadera (Tales of Symphonia and Of The Abyss). It will also be backed by a theme song from Ayumi Hamasaki. No word yet on an international release.
