I don’t know why anyone would want to jump right into Tales of Xillia 2 without playing Tales of Xillia, but Namco Bandai will summarize the events for newcomers.
Tales of Xillia 2 will have an easy to understand digest movie that explains the previous game’s world and story. Tales of Xillia takes place in Liese Maxima while Tales of Xillia 2 is set in a technologically advanced world called Elenpios.
Many characters from Tales of Xillia, like Leia in the screenshot, return as playable characters in Tales of Xillia 2. Ludger, the protagonist, is a new character that Tales series producer Hideo Baba designed so players feel like a hero.
