Namco Bandai have shared another two short videos of Tales of Xillia 2, showing off Resonance Artes chains and a character video of Leia, who is yet another returning character from the first Tales of Xillia game. Watch them below:




Tales of Xillia 2 is scheduled for release on November 1st in Japan.

    Tales of Xillia 2 looks promising. I already know we are getting Tales Of Xillia in the west, I’m just worried Namco will opt to let the second one stay in Japan. Like they have done with many other tales games. 
    I’m also kinda hopeful Namco is trying to make the Tales series an actual series in the west. Since they have actually decided to localize two different tales games in the short span of only a year (Graces in 2012, and Xillia sometime in 2013). Not to mention they will actually be on the same console.

      Actually all company there would love to keep bringing their game for as many customers as they can there.

      However it is useless if bringing the game to the west is not bringing profit to them there. We can only hope here that First Xilia will do well here considering how Tales fans over here is utter garbage.T_T

      Hope that this time they won’t said that they don’t want to support the franchise solely because there are some part of the game get cut there which happen to almost all game too.

      • Zeromus321

        Oh, I understand. There are many, many costs to consider when localizing a game. But Namco Bandai has not handled the Tales Series well in the west. Which has played a role in some of the poor sales of previous entries in the Tales series in the west. But you are correct, sales will be what decides the fate of Tales Of Xillia 2 and later entries in the Tales series here in the west.

        whoops double, post. Sorry about that. :/

    • LightZero

      That will only happen if Xillia sales even worst than Graces. 

  • Tales_of_Master

    Yup, I’m already sold on the game (not like I needed any convincing), but I’m eagerly waiting for NB to announce the game for localizing. Usually I import all Tales games, but since ToG was localized, and ToX is getting a localization, I’m gonna wait in the hope of getting ToX2 too.

       it’s simple actually ..
       want Xillia 2 ? buy xillia 1 when it releases

      • Zeromus321

        I like the way you think. You sir get a like.

      • Tales_of_Master

         I own at least one version of every single Tales game released (be it JAP or US version). Also, the Tales series is my most favorite game series (alongside SMT), and my extension my most favorite RPG series (again, alongside SMT). There is no need to tell me that I need to get the game….although I appreciate your enthusiasm :D

    And the enemy STILL isn’t dead! XD

  • Learii

    what are AC? =o

    • Arrei

      Every attack in a combo will cost one AC in addition to the TP cost, so you can string any combination of attacks together as long as you have AC.

      • Learii

        oh is not like CC in tales of graces right?

        • Arrei

          It’s like a combination of CC and TP. Artes have a TP cost again, but can be used in any order like with CC. All attacks, including regular hits, cost one AC, but AC also regenerates instantly when your chain is over so you don’t end up having to wait to restore your resources.

          It’s basically a counter of how many actions you can take in a single combo.

          • Learii

            does that mean i can do many hits on the enemy i want without waiting? like ToV

          • Arrei

            I believe so, you basically just reach the end of your combo and AC completely regenerates after a short pause, like when you reach the end of a combo in Vesperia and have to start a new one.

  • That was one resilient plant. O_o

  • Leia proves that people can fly lol =P

  • theoriginaled

    I have this irrational fear when I see combo showcase videos like this that Ill have to do things like this in game just to take down simple enemies.

  • Well Millia makes a return. 

  • Also Gaius and Myuze being playable characters maybe? :o 

    I mean, they were scrapped from the original.
