Earlier today, Namco Bandai announced Tales of Xillia 2, in development for the PlayStation 3 and coming this winter. Xillia 2 takes place one year after Tales of Xillia, and starts Ludgar, his pet cat, Lulu, and an 8-year-old girl, Elle, as its main characters. You can watch the announcement trailer for the game below:
Xillia 2 uses the Cross Double-Raid Linear Motion Battle System. In battle, Ludgar can switch between dual swords, guns or a hammer weapon. At certain points in the game, you’ll also get to make choices. This will be done using the L1 and R1 buttons, and will affect how certain events play out. This is demonstrated in the trailer, too.
