Tale Tale Source brings new information on Tales of Xillia 2. Among these is a unique support ability for Ludger. It’s called “mirroring” and it allows him to mimic any other character’s support ability.
There’s news on Milla, too. As previously detailed, she’s back in Tales of Xillia 2, and is described as proud and stubborn. Milla wants to complete her mission (implied in Tales of Xillia that it’s saving the world). Milla has been living with the older twin of the great spirit, Ni Akeria, and she will accompany Ludger on his journey.
Finally, the biggest news of all is the reveal of an “intimacy parameter” that Ludger shares with each character. The choices he makes in character episodes—free missions with the other characters—and long chats help strengthen your relationships. Depending on your relationship level, you may see special chats after battles and learn new Artes and skills as well.
The intimacy parameter level is depicted using hearts (think Zelda’s life metre) between 1 and 10.
