      Yeah would love an anime adaptation of Xillia 1 & 2. A 50 ep long series animated by Ufotable ofc. ;D..

      • I’d like movie personally, just don’t have time to watch long series these day.

  • Tales_of_Master

    Waiting for my copy is gonna be excruciating. I’ll make sure to do the cameo battle the moment it’s available :D Awesome game and an awesome opening song. Tales team did it again.

  • MrTyrant

    Love the opening. Man I really wish they don’t take much time in announce Xillia 2 in english after Xillia 1, waiting can be painful too, very painful.

  • Bloodios

    Hmm… I’m still not used to seeing Milla with less skin.

    • Spectacularity

      That’s a good thing imo.
      I always thought her body looked weird. 

  • AoNoise

    UFOtable does beautiful things. Beautiful indeed.

  • Akarnage


    Did anyone notice the Milla at 1:18 has a different outfit and green hair again? o___O

    I REALLY think this game is going to wind up as a prequel what with the implied time travelling and with Milla becoming Maxwell and the birth of the Kresnik Spear.

    • This game is takes place one year after the events in Xillia.

    • If I told you anything pertaining to your question, I’d be spoiling you. Let me know if you want to know though.

      • Akarnage

        Just… tell me if I’m Right, Almost Right, Wrong or Dead Wrong in this statement. Please? :)

        I’ve seen there’s an old man in Xillia 1 (much like the classic Maxwell) so… Milla is not REALLY the Maxwell? 

        I’ve also seen theres a world called Elenpios, separate from Rise Maxia. I’m guessing there’s a Milla in Elenpios and another one in Riese?

        • Nee Nee

          Logically speaking, you can’t go back in the past and have all that technology while in the future you’re living off candles.

          As for your question, wrong and perhaps right. It’s a sequel. It might involve time travelling maybe, who knows. We’re already going for an alternate world in Xillia 2. There might be two Millas, who knows? Play the game when it comes out :y

        • Millia was a fake”Maxwell” used to lure out Jirando. She becomes the true Maxwell later on though.

          There are two Milla’s. One from the previous game which now governs the balance of the spirits in the world as Maxwell. The other one is her younger sister.

    • MrTyrant

        Didn’t siliconera spoil this in the past news? even Famitsu published this new about the two Millas and their identity so it’s not so secret anymore. Even a little search on the net will tell you that much.

  • Learii

    Ayumi <3 i  love her songs

  • This is, hands down, the best (badass action-packed) Tales Of opening if not the best video game anime opening I’ve ever seen!
    My reaction: ‘O M G! Ludger goes guns akimbo knife sword badass ZOMG! Jade and Original!Milla go BADASS DUO FIGHT! And then, OMG! DEMON BROTHER SWORD FIGHT! And then…’ — the beginning of an epic story.

    People say Xillia 1 is crap compared to other Tales games and that Jude is horrendous, but I CAN’T WAIT TO PLAY IT – and XILLIA 2!
    Besides, Jude kinda reminds of Emil and Shing, they seem very… how can I put this… ‘Jude, Emil and Shing are more of a representative to the common people and the average teenager when compared to Luke fon Fabre or Asbel Lhant as they are aristocrats’.

    • With the exception of the Ludger & Julius confrontation near the end, I thought it was very boring personally.

  • Freud_Hater

    Ludger can use Requip magic!! :O (If you got the joke, I like ya :p)

    Anyway, this is pretty damn badass. I think my party will always be Ludgar, Jude, Milla and Gaius. Those four are so badass it’s crazy!

  • Barrylocke89

    This opening wasn’t bad, but the Tales of Xillia 1 openings felt a LOT more dynamic, especially the first 20 seconds or so, which I adore. The slight differences between the Milla and Jude openings were a nice touch too.


    •  True, but the song in the Xillia 2 Opening is very high-paced, active and all, which fits to all the action-packed battle sequences we see in the opening.
      However, I have to admit, Xilla 1 Opening ain’t bad either :3.

      • Tien Ron

        i think xillia’s 2 opening song is alot better than the first in my opinion it has more heart and really bring out what the game is showing with lugder and elle

        •  Hey bro, agree with you. Nonetheless, the 2nd opening song is also more epic compared to the 1st opening song (though the first 50 seconds are very good imo).

    • MrTyrant

      I only linked the fighting parts. I prefer Xillia 2 opening but I think the song in the first one is better…still…I love Ludger movements and fighting style in the Xillia 2 video.

    •  Yeah I agree, the first xillia op seem better. How should I say this? In the character introduction in Xillia 2 op seems a bit off when the song is quite fast paced but the animation seem to lack of energy.

  • evilmoogle

    Before people ask about the different milla outfit at the opening.

    Let’s just say major spoiler related to the first game.


  • BrokenHamster

    Noticed something in that last scene. Ludger isn’t there, and the original Milla is there, not the new one. Possible Milla Fusion/Ludger death?

  • Oh my! There’s Jude and the Spoiler Spoiler!! Yay

  • Masengan

    The cloud scenery at the beginning was just beautiful, liked the intro.

  • That was just too beautiful (Sniff sniff). Hopefully Tales of Xillia 2 will be localized not too long after the first one. ^_^

  • margherita mastropaolo

    what a splendid intro
    this game has to come to the west

  • Kristina Wright

    Gave me goosebumps! Very excited for the first, hope this follows soon after. =)
