Scenes From Tales Of Xilla’s Animated Opening

By Spencer . May 30, 2011 . 8:12am


Tales of Xilla will have many anime cutscenes and an animated intro movie, which Tales of Festival attendees also saw a preview of. One fan kindly took a few snapshots with Jude, Milla, Rowen, Leia, Alvin, and Elise in anime form.

Just like we mentioned almost a month ago, Tales of Xillia will have two opening sequences. Players can select to start the game with Jude or Milla and you’ll see a different back story leading up to their meeting.


Tales of Xillia will be released on September 8 in Japan.

  • Jude so cool, that is all.

  • malek86

    Some big hands there, Leia.

  • Yamaneko22

    I love this constant stream of Tales related info xD

  • DanteJones

    Milla for prez!

    • Pretty much this. :D

    • neetloaf

      That’s a pretty funny way of spelling Leia Roland.

  • PrinceHeir

    always wanted games having anime as cutscenes instead of In game models :)

    Ex: Xenogears and Xenosaga(at least Episode I; FMV same thing :P)

    soo yes this looks amazing, i wonder how long will this game lasts?

    • I dont know, I think both can be beneficial. I like animu cutscenes, but oftentimes games have so few (like Disgaea).

      • True anime cutscenes are rare, and that’s why most people appreciate them as it’s something to look forward too, even more if they have cool battles or whatever in them, while ingame cutscenes are a good way to tell important parts of the story without going too over the board(wasting too much money and time on anime scenes), I believe Persona is a good example here.

      • What the hell is an “animu”?

        • noctis_nox

          The word “animu” means “anime”, but it is used in a disparaging or self-deprecating way. It’s used as an in-joke, in reference to how anime otaku culture is not accepted by everyone, and how anime can consume so much time, energy, money.

          Got it from some site. ;p

          • Darkrise

            Urban Dictionary?

          • noctis_nox

            Yup! XD

  • Looks great! ¬†Love that we are getting the option of a female protagonist.

  • IceRomancer

    Cool I always love tales openings!
    Everything about this game sounds and looks amazing so far!

  • Darkrise


    I’m so glad that they’re also doing anime cutscene’s for BRS The Game. =D

  • AzureNova

    Xillia is going to be awesome

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Both characters look awesome. It’s not often that I find both main male and female lead being badass in RPGs.

  • ¬†Awesome. It likes like Ufotable will not disappoint.

  • Jirin

    That art style is an improvement on previous Tales games.

    Anyway, I’ll be importing this if it doesn’t get localized, so I just have to figure out how long to wait before I’m sure it’s not.

  • hey. looks interesting huh! :)

  • Liking what I’m seeing. I’d also like it if they’d announce it for localisation too!

  • The Tales series has always had pretty good anime cutscenes, but these look particularly amazing. So looking forward to being able to see more of gorgeous Milla. :D
