V-Jump also revealed a new character in Tales of Xillia. Rowen J. Elbert is sure to be the oldest in the group at 62 years old. He says while laughing that time is precious to a geezer like himself and to stop wasting it. In battle, Rowen uses a saber as his weapon.
While you’re slashing and jumping around the screen, characters in Tales of Xillia talk. Namco Bandai created a fighting chat system where comic-like thought bubbles with text, but no voice acting. Tales of Xillia also has long chats, which are like skits, and short chats shown through character icons in the lower left hand corner.
In one of the exchanges with Jude, Alvin asks if he looked at a girl’s bottom while they’re climbing a ladder.
