Namco Bandai have announced Tales of Xillia 2, in development for the PlayStation 3 and scheduled for release this winter. Xillia 2 will take place one year after the events of the original Tales of Xillia, and stars Ludgar as its protagonist, along with his cat, Lulu.
The animation for Tales of Xillia 2 will once again be provided by anime studio, Ufotable. Ayumi Hamasaki will be providing the game’s theme song. The game will use a “Cross Double-Raid Linear Motion Battle System”.
While Namco are only saying “Winter 2012” for now, a more specific release date for Tales of Xillia 2 will be announced later this month on June 27th.
