Tales of Xillia Cast

Namco Bandai has released the second official trailer for the highly anticipated release, Tales of Xillia. Like the previous trailer, there is no gameplay footage to be found here; it’s all in-game cutscenes and animated cutscenes with the focus on the game’s story. The animation is quite beautiful, matching the Tales of standards — it could even be called the best of the series yet, and it’s all courtesy of the folks at Ufotable. Unless you’re on a media black out, the trailer will give you a good idea of the tone and narrative the game will have, even taking cues from Tales of Symphonia from what I’ve noticed. The trailer can be viewed below.

Tales of Xillia is a PlayStation 3 exclusive, and will arrive in North America on August 6th and August 9th in Europe. While you might have missed the Collector’s Edition, the Limited Edition is being offered for the entire first-print run. So be sure to pre-order to not have to miss those goodies.

    Any word on whether the art book for the collector’s and limited edition is the same?

    • Tara

      They stated that the artbook for the Limited/First Print Edition is a “Character Book” and exclusive to that edition, and that the artbook for the Collector’s Edition is exclusive to that, as well. So I’m gonna say probably different. I wouldn’t be surprised if the CE artbook contains the content of the LE artbook, though.

    • Nozomi

      Do people not…google?

      The LE book is a character profile booklet. The CE book is a 100-page artbook. The CDs are also different.

      I did, and there was conflicting information at the time.

    The presentation in this Tales of game seems so much more professional and on a grander scale than any of the others I have played. I loved Abyss, and I am one to have absolutely hated Vesperia for it’s endless bullshit, and lack of emotion in the characters, and what was going on around them.

    • Bec66

      I actually have been wondering what the big deal is with Vesperia. I mean I’ve never gotten to play it but it seems like people are purposely bashing other titles then boasting about how Veperia is SO much better, really it gets kind of annoying after a while. I don’t want to hate the game without playing it but the way people seem bash other tales games just to make Vesperia seem better really get on my nerves.

    Also on a side note, the guys that from my knowledge who are protagonist ( the black haired samurai guy) are they playable in 2?

  • Ghaerdon

    Wow… I am happy I have my preorder in place. I was unsure, but after seeing this, I kinda got a vibe that told me the whole thing would come across as ‘believeable’ game. I wish they redeem those expectations from me.

    I normally hardly ever preorder anything, but I’ll be preordering this today.
