Tales of Xillia’s theme song "Progress" is performed by Ayumi Hamasaki and you can dress Milla Maxwell like the pop idol. Limited edition copies of her mini-album Five include a code for a singer costume for Milla, which is based on one of Hamasaki’s costumes. As of now, the only ways to obtain this outfit is to buy the CD or scour Yahoo! auctions for product codes.
Namco Bandai also shared screenshots of the game’s level up system where players can boost one of six stats with GP (short for Grow Up Points). As you grow the hexagonal grid, you also reveal unseen skills and arts. The key is lighting up adjacent nodes on the web, which creates connections and unlocks additional nodes. If all of this sounds too complicated you can let the computer manage character growth. The game has a built in auto node feature.
Namco Bandai also released screenshots of King Gaius and another look at the game’s resonance artes system where you can combine techniques in battle. Tales of Xillia comes out on September 8 for PlayStation 3.
