Namco Bandai shared a new trailer and details for Tales of Xillia 2 during its “Yapparai Tales of Special Stage” event at the Tokyo Game Show today.

Trailer

The trailer, attached at the bottom of this section (via Famitsu), shows:

  • Tales of Xillia 2‘s anime cutscenes.
  • Ludger’s brother Julius’ Corpse Shell transformation in a heated battle with Ludger’s transformation.
  • Julius appears to be a wanted criminal.
  • A possible, fatal shooting of Elle’s father.
  • A new arte for Ludger, “Assault Dance.”
  • A new theme song, “Song 4 U,” by Ayumi Hamasaki.

(Note: Ludger’s silence is reportedly due to editing in his voice work. He has lines.)

Costumes

Download costumes purchased for Tales of Xillia 1 can be used in Tales of Xillia 2. Some of the costumes, such as the first-run bonus Yuri and Asbel costumes for Jude and Milla, can be used across both games.

Unfortunately, Elle will not be able to wear additional costumes.

A costume collaboration with Puella Magi Madoka Magica for the game’s female characters was also announced.

    Elle had extra costumes from the first game??

    love the anime cutscenes, this game is shaping up to be one of the best Tales games ever :)

      Elle wasn’t in the first game. I think they meant to say that she will not get any costumes at all (as she is not a playable character)

      • PrinceHeir

        thanks for the clear up :D

  • new_tradition

    Wait, wait, wait…There’s actually a Tales Magazine available? :O

  • zakou

    “Ludger’s silence is reportedly due to editing in his voice work. He has lines.” Well, good to know. I was worried that we were going to get a silent protagonist. I am curious about why they edited it out. The trailer really hyped me up & now I want to play the first Xillia.

    Super excited about TOX2 and of course, english TOX1. I’m wondering when the “FF7″ of the Tales of series will pop up. Y’know, that one game which skyrockets the franchise into a million seller. TOX2 might be it =p
