Tales of Xillia 2 Will Have Bonus Items For Loyal Tales Fans


As reported this past weekend, Namco Bandai are bringing Tales of Xillia 2 to Europe (and Australia, too, they say) in 2014.


Prior to the game’s release, this August will see the release of the first Tales of Xillia game in the West, and Namco say that if you have a save file for both Tales of Xillia as well as Tales of Graces f on your PlayStation 3, you’ll be able to avail bonus items in Tales of Xillia 2.


Namco haven’t specified just what these items will be, if you look over our Japanese coverage of the game, you’ll see that Tales of Xillia 2 has a whole lot of DLC in Japan to pick from.


Tales of Xillia 2 follows the adventures of Ludger Kresnik and Elle Marta. The game features a “choice” mechanic, where the player is asked to make on-the-spot choices using the L and R buttons. Tales of Xillia 2 also has a weapon swap feature in battle, which allows Ludger to switch between dual pistols, dual blades and a sledgehammer.
