Tales of Xillia 2 | oprainfall

As many of you may know, New York Comic Con took place last weekend, and Namco Bandai was one of the numerous companies that took part. Within their “Tales of” booth was a trailer for their upcoming Tales of Xillia 2, among other news to much fan delight. Tales of Xillia 2‘s newest trailer really shows where the series will be heading in this next installment. Just judging by the music, aesthetics, and the themes lightly touched on during the emotional trailer, it seems that Xillia 2 will be a much darker and more serious tale. Also, an added bonus: the trailer includes the English voice-overs, similar to the one shown during the Tokyo Game Show. Be sure to check it out down below.

Even though the trailer was from a secondhand fan recording, it was still impressive. Being able to hear the English voice-over for more than a handful of seconds also was a nice little gift from Namco Bandai. So what do you all out there think about the darker tone and heavier themes coming into play this time around? Does it make the wait for Tales of Xillia 2‘s 2014 release date that much more unbearable? As always, let your voices be heard in the comments!
