Tales of Xillia 2 announced, out in Japan this winter

Saturday, 2nd June 2012 13:50 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Tales of Xillia 2 was announced overnight after much teasing on the matter from Namco Bandai.

The PS3 sequel takes place a year after Tales of Xillia, with the main character being Ludgar, whose entourage includes his cat, Lulu, and a little girl named Elle is apparently the key to the story. It’s unclear at this point whether the game will use a dual, main character system like the first one, but it more information on the game is expected on June 27.

What Andirasang has gleaned though, the ability to make key choices. One decision shown in the the trailer involved using tomatoes in a recipe, an ingredient Elle is not very fond of, apparently.

Another sequence involved choosing whether to fight an enemy or back off with the event changing depending on the player’s choice.

In battle, Ludgar has a weapon shift ability he can use which allows him to use a weapons such as a hammer, or dual wiled weapons such as pistols and swords.

The game is slated for a winter release in Japan, and a more specific date will be announced on June 27. There will also be a special DualShock controller for it as well.

Hit up the official site here, and watch the video below. There are plenty of screenshots available through Andriasang as well.

    Oh…..well sorry, but zero reason to care about this. The first one hasn’t even hit the west yet, if it ever will :(

    Why did they have to switch angles? Now you can really see just how ugly it is, at least in the older games this was concealed because you saw it from above …

    Who makes their game look worse voluntarily?

    I’m sorry. But this is stupid. Why SONY can’t publish Tales series for EU, US?

    WTF? I want to play JRPG’s on my PS3 because it’s the only platform that offers this…

    I thought Namco Bandai had said that Tales of Xillia would come to the west if Tales of Graces F sold well, i guess it didn’t then? However, not so long ago a trademark for Xillia was seen on a european database, and later for a US version. Time will tell i guess.
