Tales of Xillia 2 Release Set for August

PS3 by Alex

Tales of Xillia 2 has just been announced to release on August 19 in North America and August 22 in Europe. A Collector’s Edition will be available in both regions, and a Day One Edition has been announced for Europe. Read on to get the release details, a look at the story, and some gameplay videos.

The North America Collector’s Edition will feature the game disk, a Ludger figure, a compact mirror that replicates Elle’s pocket watch, a Rollo plush charm, a Tales of Xillia 2 music CD, an art book, and three DLC costumes. The European Collector’s Edition’s contents are mostly the same, but the Rollo plush charm is swapped out for a metal Rollo game case. Currently, the European version does not mention the costume DLC either. While the price of the North American Collector’s Edition has been set at $129.99, one has not yet been given for the European version. Alternatively, Europeans can get the Day One Edition which contains the game, the music CD, and a metal case.

Tales of Xillia 2 takes place a year after the events of the first game, and reunites the cast for a new adventure. Bandai Namco has provided the following story introduction:

"Tales of Xillia 2 centers around Ludger Kresnik, a young man and a skilled chef who lives in Trigleph city in Elympios with his brother Julius and their cat Rollo. He strives to follow in his brother’s footsteps and work as an agent in the prestigious Spirius Corporation, a large scale and illustrious company that develops technology for every field imaginable. One day, through a chance encounter, he meets Elle Marta: a young girl travelling alone attempting to reunite with her father at the mythic “Land of Canaan” and ends up accompanying her. His choice to accompany her will send the two on a journey that will change the fate of the two worlds forever."

New English screenshots of the game can be found on the Tales Facebook page, and a few English gameplay videos can be found here:
