Tales Of Xillia® 2 Now Available Throughout the Americas Exclusively for the PlayStation 3 System

Aug 19th 2014

Enter a Multi-Dimension Spanning Epic Adventure and Complete the TALES OF XILLIA Saga with TALES OF XILLIA 2

SAN JOSE, Calif., (August 19, 2014) – Leading video game developer and publisher Bandai Namco Games America Inc. today released TALES OF XILLIA® 2 exclusively for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system throughout North America and South America. Building on the foundation of last year's TALES OF XILLIA® gameplay and world, TALES OF XILLIA 2 brings together brand new characters in this epic multiple-dimensions spanning Japanese role-playing game experience.

TALES OF XILLIA 2 focuses on the events a year after the climactic end of TALES OF XILLIA. Players assume the role of Ludger Kresnik, a young man with a zest for cooking who lives with his older brother and cat Rollo. On his way to his first day at work for a local cafeteria he runs into a young girl named Elle Marta and the two soon become involved in an accident that will change both of their lives forever.

TALES OF XILLIA 2 focuses its story theme around the concept of “choice”, which is also expressed heavily in the game's overall gameplay mechanics. Throughout Ludger's journey the player will be able to decide how he reacts to various characters and situations. These choices can cause the story to branch out into different paths and affect relationships with party members depending on the player's decisions.

Choice also extends to the battle system for TALES OF XILLIA 2 by enhancing the TALES OF series' trademark gameplay. Players will be able to initiate “Weapon Swap” in real-time during battles while controlling Ludger, allowing him to switch between three main weapons: dual blades, a sledgehammer and dual pistols, allowing for fast and strategic movements as he rushes across the battlefield. Building on the base from TALES OF XILLIA's battle system, the new Cross Dual Raid Linear Motion Battle System will let players link to any selectable character in battle to serve as a support character and perform linked artes against targeted enemies. Different party members have different support characteristics and linked artes, allowing players to strategically decide which characters are linked to whom as various battle situations arise.

Players who have a save game file from both TALES OF GRACES® f and TALES OF XILLIA will be able to enjoy exclusive bonus items for TALES OF XILLIA 2. DLC costumes purchased for TALES OF XILLIA will also work with TALES OF XILLIA 2.

TALES OF XILLIA 2 is now available for both North America and Latin America exclusively for the PlayStation 3 system. The game is rated “T” for teen by the ESRB and has a MSRP of $59.99.
