Review: We Love Katamari REROLL+ Royal Reverie

New English Trailer for Tales of Xillia 2

As GamerEscape’s resident Tales fanatic, there are two games I am most hoping to see more news about at this year’s E3: Tales of Hearts R and Tales of Xillia 2. Sure, both of these games have been out in Japan for quite some time, but seeing new English language trailers for either game is enough to
