Tales of Xillia 2 Announced
Namco Bandai of Japan has just announced a sequel to Tales of Xillia for the PlaySation 3. The game will take place one year after the events of the original. The world reflects a more modern world while still including fantasy elements. Characters introduced thus far are Ludgar, his cat Lulu, and Elle, a little girl said to have a very important role in the story. During certain scenarios, you’ll have to make key choices on what action to take by using the L1 and R1 buttons. Each decision will bare different consequences, so you’ll have to choose wisely. As far as weapons go, you’ll be able to switch between swords, dual pistols, and hammers, all in real-time, so there’s no need to equip a different weapon before a battle. The game is expected to release in Japan this coming Winter. Let’s hope Namco Bandai releases the first one in America to begin with.
Here’s a video of the trailer and gameplay footage demonstrating the new “Weapon Shift” mechanic called, “Cross Double-Raid Linear Motion Battle System”.
