‘Tales of Xillia’ Coming to the Western Market

After the success of Tales of the Abyss and Tales of Graces F, Namco Bandai has announced that another Tales Of game is being released in the western market: Tales of Xillia.

Here is  quick preview of the game, courtesy of Namco Bandai:

Tales of Xillia follows Jude Mathis, a clever medical student attending school in the capital city, and Milla Maxwell, a mysterious woman accompanied by four unseen beings. Players will be able to choose either Milla or Jude at the outset of their adventure through the world of Rieze Maxia, where humans and spirits live together in harmony.  The kingdom of Rashugal has been experimenting with a powerful device that has been draining the mana from the world.  Realizing the harm it is inflicting on the world, Milla and Jude set off on a journey to destroy it and restore the mana back to the world.   Over the course of the game their lives will intersect with a vast ensemble of characters that will teach them the meaning of life, and what it truly means to live for oneself.

Players will engage enemies with the critically acclaimed Linear Motion Battle System that the Tales Of series is famous for.  The system allows for real-time movement and attacks, giving the player a more tactile role in the midst of fights.  The battle system in Tales of Xillia has been upgraded to let two characters combine their attacks to utilize devastating dual-character attack, letting fans strategize the best party setup for their style of play.

You can expect Tales of Xillia to be released sometime in 2013. Namco Bandai also stated that western markets could see the sequel, set to release November 1 in Japan, if this one sells well. If you are a fan of JRPG’s or the Tales Of series, you need to check this one out.
