The downloadable Madoka Magica and Code Geass: Akito the Exiled costumes for the Tales of Xillia 2 PlayStation 3 role-playing game were previewed at the Machi Asobi Vol. 9 event in Tokushima Prefecture on Saturday.
Namco Bandai Games announced at Tokyo Game Show on September 23 that it will offer Puella Magi Madoka Magica costumes as downloadable content (DLC) in Tales of Xillia 2. Not only can female characters wear the costumes, but even the Madoka Magica character Kyubey will appear in the form of an costume "attachment." Each costume will be available on November 15 for 500 yen (about US$6.40).
The downloadable Code Geass costumes will be available on November 1 for 500 yen each. Namco Bandai Games announced plans for the costumes at the "Tales of Xillia 2 Summer Vacation Talk" event in August.
Enterbrain's Famitsu website posted more photographs of the costume preview on Saturday.
The "RPG where choice weaves the future" is set one year after the ending of the first Tales of Xillia. 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).
