posted on by Karen Ressler
Namco Bandai Games' European division began streaming two more character promotional videos and a "Man and Spirit" trailer on Thursday for the next installment of the "Tales of" series, Tales of Xillia. The character videos, similar to the first two videos, preview battle footage for the characters Elize and Alvin.
Tales of Xillia will ship in Europe on August 9 and in North America on August 6 for PlayStation 3. The video also previews two different limited editions: a "Milla Maxwell Collector's Edition" with a Milla figurine, original soundtrack, and an artbook, and a "D1 Edition" with the artbook and soundtrack. Fans who pre-order either edition will receive exclusive costumes for Milla and Jude. Siliconera has confirmed that the special editions will be available in North America as well. Namco Bandai Games released the game in Japan in September 2011, and the Tales of Xillia 2 sequel shipped in Japan last November.
The anime studio ufotable produced the animated footage for Tales of Xillia. Mutsumi Inomata (Windaria, Future GPX Cyber Formula, Utsunomiko) and Kousuke Fujishima (Aa Megami-sama, You're Under Arrest, Sakura Wars) — both veterans of previous "Tales of" games — designed the characters, and Ayumi Hamasaki performed the theme song.
