The Japanese video game news website Famitsu began streaming a new promotional video for the Tales of Xillia 2 role-playing game on Friday. This latest promotional video features recently-revealed returning characters Muse (voiced by Asami Sanada) and Gaius (voiced by Ryotaro Okiayu), who will return as player characters. The video also features the two newly-announced characters Ridō (voiced by Koji Yusa) and Chronos (voiced by Junichi Suwabe).
Namco Bandai Games also began streaming two character introduction videos on Thursday for Leia and Milla. The company also streamed a "special characteristic" video for Jude, and a "weak attribute link" battle gameplay video on Thursday.
The "RPG where choice weaves the future" is set one year after the ending of the first Tales of Xillia game. The key to the story is an eight-year-old girl named Elle Mel Marta (played by Mariya Ise). Daigo Okumura (Tales of the Tempest, Yumeria game, Elementhunters) is designing the new characters, in addition to the ones previously designed by Mutsumi Inomata (Windaria, Future GPX Cyber Formula, Utsunomiko) and Kousuke Fujishima (Aa Megami-sama, You're Under Arrest, Sakura Wars).
The game will ship for the PlayStation 3 console on November 1. Pre-orders will cost 8,380 yen (about US$105) and include the Tales of Xillia 2 -Before Episode- novel and artbook by the scenario writer, three alternate downloadable costumes (including Tales of Symphonia's Emil costume for Ludger), and 17 custom PlayStation 3 themes. Buyers can also add an official Dual Shock 3 Tales of Xillia 2 X (Cross) edition controller for a total of 12,980 yen (US$163).
