New Tales of Xillia Details From WonderCon 2013

XilliaPS3 by eric

The Tales of Xillia panel at WonderCon 2013 took place Friday afternoon where executive producer Hideo Baba revealed more details about the English version of the game. As previously revealed the English voice actors for Milla and Jude were confirmed but there were also clips of the opening theme, more gameplay, and even a voiced skit.

Tales of Xillia tells the story of Jude Mathis, an intelligent medical student studying at the hospital in the metropolitan city of Fennmont, and Milla Maxwell, a mysterious woman who is capable of summoning all types of elemental sprits. Players will be able to choose either of the two protagonists when they begin adventuring through the world of Rieze Maxia, a land where humans and spirits live together in peace. Together with the help of a diverse cast of characters, Jude and Milla's paths intersect as they set off on a quest to stop the kingdom of Rashugal from draining the world of all of its mana.

The leads were confirmed to be Sam Riegel as Jude and Minae Noji as Milla. Sam was able to attend the panel to talk to the fans. However, Minae unable to attend since she is shooting a movie, but she did send a clip to the panel to address the fans and express her delight in playing Milla. Hideo Baba also expressed his support for the English voice actors and hopes that the western fans will enjoy them.





There was more gameplay footage that featured the battle system and accessories, which lead to the characters battling in humorous attire. After that there was an English version of skit that was featured in some of the Japanese trailers of the game (a bit of an embarrassing one for Jude).



Hideo Baba also announced that the Japanese version of Progress will be the opening for the localized versions of the game. He also announced that they are trying to release the Milla Maxwell figurine to the west. Apparently he also mentioned that they are trying to lessen the time it takes to localize the Tales games.



Tales of Xillia will be releasing in North America and Europe later this year.
