Tales of Xillia 2 Collector’s Edition Comes With A Ludger Figurine And More

By Ishaan . April 22, 2014 . 7:03am

Tales of Xillia 2 is getting a collector’s edition in America, Bandai Namco announced at their Global Gamer’s Day event, which Siliconera attended. The collector’s edition will feature the following items:

 

  • Tales of Xillia game
  • Ludger Kresnik figurine
  • Elle’s Pocket Watch replica
  • Rollo plush charm
  • Tales of Xillia 2 music selection CD
  • Tales of Xillia 2 art book
  • Tales of costume DLC (Yuri Lowell, Emil Castagnier, and Asbel Lhant)

 

Tales of Xillia 2 features a different aesthetic from its predecessor, adopting a more noire atmosphere and a darker story. The game takes place a year after the events of original Tales of Xillia, and features two new protagonists—Ludger (age: 20) and Elle (age: 8).

 

In addition to the game’s new characters, old protagonists such as Jude and Milla will be back as well. The game also features a weapon swap system whereby Ludger can equip three different weapons at a time and switch between them quickly.

 

Tales of Xillia 2 will be available on August 19th in the Americas.

    The CE will be avaible in Europe too, it’s confirmed and the date is 22 August

    • Thrasher429

      Europe doesnt get that Rollo plush charm though, saw no mention of that DLC either and the pocket watch replica is a compact mirror….which better be the same for the NA CE because I swear if theirs is a fully functional pocket watch -_-

      • bro
        • Thrasher429

          HAH….No, it won’t T_T

          • bro

            Maybe it will have the same price of the Milla Maxwell edition

        • Wappuli

          Nope, EU-version of the LE will be more expensive than the US one.

        • Robgoro

          It’s $129.99 in the U.S., not sure about other regions…

          • Kornelious

            Where’d you hear that?

          • Robgoro

            I attended the showcase for Siliconera, they announced the price at the same time that they announced the collector’s edition.

          • Kornelious

            Yeesh that’s Assassins Creed Collectors Edition pricing!
            I think it works out though because Europe is getting the Rollo steelbook and the US is getting the Rollo plush. I actually prefer standard cases over steelbook’s (And boy does that standard case look awesome!) And if the Day-1 edition is the same, then we can all get a Steelbook :D
            I will likely end up buying this and the Day-1 edition as soon as it shows up XD

      • Ladius

        If I remember correctly there was a similar misunderstanding about Xillia’s pre-order DLCs, and all ended up well. There’s no reason they would avoid including them in the European version. The pocket watch will definitely be the same, too, can you imagine them making two completely different builds for no reason at all?

        • SerendipityX

          There was a difference between the US TOS CE and the Europe version. Honestly it could go either way.

  • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

    Will look forward to pictures of this… Don’t have a PS3 yet myself, but I do plan to get one at some point, and this really looks like one of the best Tales games. Certainly one of the more unique-looking ones, at least.
    Also have to say… Ludger is easily the hottest Tales protagonist I’ve seen? (And I don’t say that lightly…) So I wonder how good that figure will be.

  • Samsara09

    ohohohoho,so there are trailers,eh?
    Will the wonders never cease?

  • MaximDualBlade

    I want that comment from that person who complains about Milla’s voice XD
    Also hyped for the game!

    • Samsara09

      fuck,was that the same woman that voiced Milla in xillia 1?Impressive.
      I was sure she had the skills and did that voice on purpose…but now I am sure.

      • MaximDualBlade

        Also notice I was mocking the people who don’t understand Japanese, get the game localized and manage to complain about the voice of the characters.

        • Samsara09

          I did.That,just commented on to agree with you.That woman has skills,plenty.Whoever underestimated and mocked her job should apologize later,rsrsrs.

          but yeah,they say the jap voice is the best since it is the original,but they don’t understand it.They are right about somethings getting lost on translation,but that was when videogame was a noobie industry that didn’t make a billon dollar in profit.

          • MaximDualBlade

            exactly this!

          • Samsara09

            but yeah,a question.You do know why Millia is “different” and more feminine here,and why the VA is not doing that “macho-female” voice,right?I don’t want you to feel like i am treating you like an ignorant.

          • MaximDualBlade

            I know it’s another Milla. I don’t know anything else. And even if I’m wrong, don’t tell me XD I was just asnwering your question XD

          • Samsara09

            understood.Then,i won’t say anything more that can subtly confirm or disprove your little hypothesis.

            but yeah,regardless,you are quite smart,as I was expecting.

      • Lynx

        Well, she’s not just a voice actress.

        She’s an actual actress as in she’s stared in films and what not. That’s how I recognized her voice in Xillia.

        • Samsara09

          yeah.Well,she gained points with me.Hope she returns for other jobs.

      • Jaeger Knighty

        There is a reason she may sound different, but I won’t spoil it.

        • Samsara09

          Don’t be so kind,but thanks for the consideration.I already know the spoiler

          I do admit,I was afraid she would pull that “macho” voice here.But,she can have quite a sweet voice too.I imagine this is why she was chosen for the job.

    • Jaeger Knighty

      Keep in mind there is a reason she may sound different in this. If you don’t already know the story…

      • Samsara09

        ah yes,maybe he doesn’t know.Not everyone is as hungry for spoiler as us.
        yes,let’s just keep it at that.

      • MaximDualBlade

        I haven’t even played Xillia 1, but I kinda know why you said so, but my current info is so low that I will surely get surprises when I play them

      • uyjulian

        ==SPOILERS BELOW==
        ==SPOILERS BELOW==
        ==SPOILERS BELOW==
        There are two Millas in the story, one is from an alternate world. The girl (Elle) brings the Milla from the alternate world into the main world.

        ==SPOILERS ABOVE==
        ==SPOILERS ABOVE==

        • Jaeger Knighty

          Was this for me, or them? I’ve already played the game (Japanese version) and finished it, so I know there are two of them, haha.

          • uyjulian

            It was for the people who are reading the comment thread

  • GibbRS

    Please let it be available anywhere else besides the Namco store that uses digital river.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Geez Namco, it’s like you don’t want me to have any money left at the end of the year… orz

    • Samsara09

      Well,they say “money-chan” never stays in one place…at least not in our pocket,definetly….hehehe.

      • http://vindictushots.tumblr.com/ Okuni-chan

        Money-chan is a rolling stone~
        Where ever he laid his hat was was his home
        and when he was spent, all he left us was alone with video games~

  • BillyMK

    Where do I pre order?

  • fawzowz

    i hope there’s no more muttons merchant ~.~

    • Dimentionalist

      Listen to the town video carefully. He has returned.

      Ever wonder why the Wonder Chef never showed up in Xillia? The mutton man got him.

      • Kornelious

        Damn you Mutton Man!!!

  • Ladius

    Finally, I have been waiting to play Xillia 2 since the moment Xillia ended :) Day one for me, the Collector’s Edition looks better than Xillia’s too.

    • Samsara09

      not eveyday you get a figurine of badass Ludger and a replica of his watch.

  • new_tradition

    Holy smokes, that CE sounds amazing :O

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    These Bandai Namco collector’s editions are so worth it. Can’t wait to pre-order this one.

  • Samsara09

    For a silent protagonist,Ludger has plenty of presence.

  • Freud_Hater

    Wait… August 19th?!!

  • 하세요

    I’ll need to see a price tag, first.

  • DivinePhoenix69

    Awesome! I had a blast playing the japanese version back when that came out, so i’m definately looking forward to replaying it in english.

    Also by any chance does anyone know who’s playing the voices of Ludger and Elle respectively? I could be way off but Ludger sounds a little like Roger Craig Smith, and Elle sounds like Brina Palencia?

    • Samsara09

      Elle is quite easy to find,not to me though.Someone probably is already trying to identify her on one of those message boards on gamefaqs.
      Ludger,not so much.We barely heard his voice,lol.

  • Loli Summoner

    I wonder if jude will confess his love for milla on this one.

    • Samsara09

      I quite sure both of them know they love each other.
      But yeah,I hope too that Jude can be more verbal about it…

    • KrazyBean

      They way they held hands at the end of Xillia shows that they already love each other. Jude still needs to say it though.

    • SerendipityX

      He probably still has feelings for Gaius….

      • Samsara09

        don’t worry Jude X Gaius fanboys,your wishes will probably be made true in xillia 2,probably.

    • Dom

      I feel like this one might take a few sequels.

  • DyLaN

    Is it me or the Bakur dude have Van face? Who designed him again?

    And the after battle skits are LOL as usual.

  • KrazyBean

    As soon as Xillia ended I wanted more. Can’t wait. I hope the CE is not too expensive cause I want it.

    LOL at Oscore Plant. I thought Jude said Oscorp Plant…what is this, Spider-Man?

  • lordsofskulls

    were do i pre-order collector edition? >.> cause i own collector of first game and i want collector of this one as well to complete it….

  • SerendipityX

    Wait, Lance of Kresnik and Ludger Kresnik…is there some kind of connection? Or maybe I’m thinking too much and its just a coincidence.

    • Ferrick

      shhhh

    • Samsara09

      shhhh…

    • Lynx

      ………………………….

      Play the game.

    • Izzeltrioum

      In order to uncover the Origin of all, you must endure an overwhelming, Chronos-consuming quest.

      Then yer little lillybud shall be your key to unveil the ultimate discovery; Make the wrong choice, shall you repeat an endless cycle of betrayal for the sake of protecting what’s dear to you; Make it twice, doomed to hide from your sins, to an extent you will no longer be recognizable.

      Oh and shhhhh.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Darn, there go my hopes of Ludger being voiced by Vic Mignogna.

    He doesn’t sound bad at all mind you, though I can’t quite place who his VA actually is. I saw Wikipedia once list his actor as Crispin Freeman, but that’s impossible since Crispin is union and Namco are cheapskates.

    • Freud_Hater

      I also asked him via Twitter if he did voice Ludger and he denied recalling anything involving ToX2… so it’s unfortunately not him ^^’

  • http://psnprofiles.com/Diptadip Einzelkampf

    there goes my money :’(

  • Wappuli

    So US gets some sort of plush charm but apparently not the steelcase that EU gets.

    Would be nice to see a picture of the US-box so that I deside which version of LE to get.

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 禍津水樹 (MagatsuMizuki)

    I wonder if they listened and will give us dual audio

    • iamtehultimatepwnage .

      that would be really awesome :) ( well at least tales of symphonia had it :D )

  • AuraGuyChris

    Elle sounds like a raccoon dog to me…

    • Saru245

      I voted this up for the reference. That was a good one XD. Even going as far to be in another game and yet he STILL can’t get away from people calling him that xD

  • Kornelious

    SWEET! I was hoping we would hear some more info about this soon, and now we have Footage, a Release Date, a Day One Edition, and even Collectors Edition! :D Looks like I’ll have to double dip again lol (Though I worry if some stuff will be Europe exclusive)
    All of the voices sound as they should and Milla’s voice sounds excellent….I wonder who they got to do Ludgers voice though?
    I am super hyped for this! August can’t come soon enough!!! :D

  • HerosLight

    Will there be a Limited Edition? I just want the DLC costumes, like Xillia 1 did.

    Also, Gaius’s voice reminds me of Kain from Dissidia 012. (same VA?)

    And man, August 19th, I hope Smash 3DS is not around that date too.

  • http://vindictushots.tumblr.com/ Okuni-chan

    Plushieeeee ( ;A;)
    Me: Wallet~ Wallet I want the plushie!
    Wallet: …
    Me: Wallet? Please!
    Wallet: … You really think I have that type of money!?
    Me: Wallet! You finally spoke to me. Does that mean you’re not mad at me for spending so much on games? That I can get that plushie? Aw I’m so happy! Thank you <3
    Wallet: You aren't listening to me at all. *sigh*

  • Black Is a Status

    the ps4 could have waited another year or two. b/c the ps3 is hotter then its even been

  • artemisthemp

    Sorry to tell people but, the Rollo plush charm, Soundtrack or Costumes won’t be in the EU CE

    • Wappuli

      The music selection CD is in the EU-version too.
      And it will have steelcase that doesn’t seem to be in the US-version.

      • artemisthemp

        Hopefully the Costumes will be Pre order bonus

  • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

    Can we put the cast in their clothes from the original game using DLC or in game costumes?
    Does the pocket watch replica work or is it just decoration?

    • Izzeltrioum

      Yes. All of them (Been a while since I played it. But, if memory serves me right, you can unlock their TOX1 costumes by finishing their character episodes).

      Even Xill1′s DLC can be used in TOX2.

      • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

        Sweet thanks. I really wanna put Gaius and Jude in their original clothes.

        • Wappuli

          You can also get color variations of their original costumes. And Gaius can get the other costume he used in the first game too.

          • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

            Oh the white red and gold one at the end? Sweet. I’d like that one too. Thanks for heads up. My PS3 broke on me, so I’ll likely have to replay the XILLIA again to get the other costumes back. But all I really want is the original ones for some of the characters. And since I get those in this game, as you said. I might leave it at that. (after my PS3 broke and I replaced it I still have the trophies on my profile at least).

  • Timovisch

    OMG! So pumped for this! Take my money Bamco!

  • Alex

    Gonna play Gaius all day erryday.

  • brian

    I guess supposedly this is gonna be $129, holy crappppp.

  • BlakShiranui

    I still need to finish Xillia, but I’m definitely getting the collector’s edition this time around. I must have that Ludger figure ;~;

  • https://twitter.com/Panda_castro Panda

    Looks like I’m going to skip the CE since I won’t be able to afford it. I hope they bring the Day 1 edition here.

    • Kyle81290

      Imo… the figure looks bad in comparison with the milla one from the first Xillia but the Day 1 edition looks really good… i just hope the metal case doesn’t rust like my Halo 2 metal edition xD

  • Kyle81290

    I love Elle Voice! first time in a dub i don’t find the little girl voice to be annoying

    • AuraGuyChris

      Should be very familiar if you watch One Piece.

      • Christopher Nunes

        Is it Chopper’s English VA? What the actor’s name?

        • AuraGuyChris

          Brina Palencia’s her name. She also voiced Chiaotzu in DBZ Kai and Natsuki (main female lead) in Summer Wars.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Sadly I missed the Summer Wars movie when it aired on Toonami.

            Nice to know.

          • Freud_Hater

            She also voices the psychotic (and amazingly adorable) Yuno from Mirai Nikki as well as the stalking wizard Juvia from Fairy Tail! But are you sure that it’s her? That would be insanely awesome :O

          • AuraGuyChris

            If you’re not so sure yourself, just put Elle and Chopper together. There’s NO difference.

          • Freud_Hater

            I never listened to Funimation’s dub of OP, sadly… but I have a reason to now! =D

      • Kyle81290

        I don’t watch One Piece and im from México so… no reason for me to watch the english dub version even if i did xD

    • Christopher Nunes

      Nice to hear that… I was expecting people to bash her English Dub voice like they do to most English voiceovers.

      I think they did a good job picking Elle’s english voice. Sounds kinda cute to me.

      • Kyle81290

        My only complain with dubs is, when they try to do the high pitched voices for the little girls and fail miserably and then you have a cute girl like Elle turn into Teepo DX

        • Christopher Nunes

          I like Teepo and I think Elize’s voice is perfect and cute. I generally like both English and Japanese voiceovers and like how different they are and try to fit the character.

          Voice Acting is a lot of work, I did a few fun ones and I could tell I’m an amateur like here, like fandubbing as Vantias, and my range and “effort” to sound like a menacing and mysterious character falls short:
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84_IlAw1m_M

          The only thing that was “good” was the creepy laughter I did, which scared a few guys watching it, and when I see the official game with professional dub voices they put a lot of time and energy rehearsing their roles and practicing their pitches and vocals to sound right and it’s the sound director’s job (or whoever it is) to have them do the job right.

          Which, I’ll admit come across some awkward voices like that girl from Star Ocean 3 who was too squeaky but got over it, I respect the people who voice the characters and feel ashamed how people are so quick to over-criticized the actors like some of the comments I saw on the English Dub of Blue Exorcist which I thought everyone’s voices fit the characters perfectly (but I never saw the Japanese Dub though).

          I guess I’m more open-minded and more reasonable to come to terms with voice acting in general, but it’s an art and a people took their time to work on something with the best of their abilities.

          That’s enough from me, but I will say I’m loving the voices for the new characters in ToX2 so far! Ludger sounds’ perfect and Elle is cute in its own way.

  • Izzeltrioum

    MATAAA DESUTORAK—

    I mean

    WALLET DESUTORAKUTOOO

    Can’t wait to replay that Victor fight ;_; (Spared a save file just for that) Seriously my favorite rival/Déjà vu battle in the entire series.

  • Izzeltrioum

    NOW JUST CONFIRM MADOKA MAGICA COSTUMES

    • HerosLight

      And Code Geass and the other Tales Cameo costumes.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Namco does make the best Collectors editions. Thanks Namco

  • KingGunblader

    It will look very nice next to the Milla fig from X1! Hopefully the soundtrack CD has the boss battle themes on it. Some of the best in the series here.

  • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

    Oh-my-lord-Jude. I know what I’m getting for my birthday! :D (9 days late) >_<

  • KrazyBean

    Does the European CE come with the DLC as well?

    It kinds sucks that it’s not a proper watch like the one which came in with the Lightning Returns CE. Also Ludger stays silent throughout most of the game for the first playthrough, when you play New Game +, he speaks regularly…that’s…eh?

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Goddammit! Elle sounds so freaking cute! Hurry up already August! Also, I gotta get that collector’s edition, hop it’s put on amazon soon

  • LDM

    Is this Collector’s Edition exclusive at the Namco store or can I buy this at any other place?

  • Earthjolly

    God dammit both Disgaea 4 Vita and this for August and I want both LE

  • mc3027

    I see the “fresh mutton!” voice in the background in cities is also in this game.

  • TopoRUS

    I don’t have first Xillia’s steelbook, so i guess, i prefer US edition.

    • Kyle81290

      Here’s the Day 1 Edition

  • DawnWolf

    Christmas in August you say? Okay, I’m cool with that.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/narutops2xbox/videos Black Koshinomi

    when are the CE available?

  • Anthony Birken

    I see the pre-order costumes haven’t changed, but I still love the jap voices.

  • Kyle81290

    Did they change Milla VA? i liked her previous voice but this one sounds better

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      It’s the same one as before. People who have played ToX2 say there’s a reason for her voice sounding different in this game. Which means, play and find out!

    • Arrei

      It could be they fixed whatever it was that made her voice all muffly and lispy in 99% of her lines. There was definitely something up with it in X1, when she spoke during the ending animated scene and her lines was suddenly totally clear, she sounded almost like a different person.

  • Zoozbuh

    Wow, that’s a surprisingly large amount of fully-voiced gameplay footage, considering the game isn’t out for another 4 months or so. Almost as if they have the game ready, but just aren’t sharing it with us yet… *sobs* I WANT THIS GAME SO BAD NOW, DAMMIT.

  • Zoozbuh

    Is that little girl voiced by Brina Palencia??! Aggghghjgg I love that she’s in a Tales game :’D

  • Jesse

    Elle: “Hey, don’t ruin our teamwork, your majesty!”
    Gaius: “Oh, sorry.”
    King of Auj Oule, everybody. XD

  • Kornelious

    I doubt anyone is commenting on this article anymore but….Has anyone heard anything about the Day-One edition in the U.S? I can only find it for Europe :(

    • Nero

      We’ll most likely get the day one edition here as well, seeing how Xillia 1 had it.

      • Kornelious

        WHOA! The speed of your comment suprised me lol. But your probally right….Bamco usually does things equally….usually….

        • Nero

          I would be surprised if we didn’t get a Day One Edition as well. I’m personally going for the Collector’s Edition though, seeing how I like collecting that stuff.

          • Kornelious

            Me too, but I’m more hardcore, I’m getting both…..my wallet…it hurts :P
