Tales of Symphonia Chronicles has Xillia costumes

Dress Zelos like Alvin, Kratos like Ludger, and Presea like Elize.

Tales of Symphonia Chronicles will have costumes from Tales of Xillia.

Kratos will be able to wear a Ludger outfit (from Tales of Xillia 2), while Zelos will have an Alvin costume and Presea an Elize costume (from the first Tales of Xillia).

You can obtain the costumes on your second playthrough of the game, but if you have save data for Tales of Xillia or Tales of Xillia 2, you can get at the start of your first playthrough.

Two new heads for the Tales of Symphona: Dawn of the New World‘s head accessories feature are also revealed. Emil will have access to a Mecha Emil head, and Malta an HMD head (I’m guessing a that means a helmet-mounted display).

Gallery mode will have over 100 artworks.

Thanks, Tale Tale Source.

    What the?! Tales of XIllia 2 though? I LOVE IT.

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    Where are the costumes for Symphonia 2..?

  • BizarreJelly

    Awesome! Costumes we can definitely get with our saves, unlike those icky Vesperia ones :P Interested to see how Presea is gonna pull of Elize’ big ol’ dress.

  • Gildohma

    Awesome! I just dropped like $16-$20 on costumes in Tales of Xillia lol.

  • yuina

    Can’t see Kratos as Ludger at all. Presea also deserved better than Elise.

    • Milla

      what you want presea to have a presa outfit Kappa?

  • Randy Marsh

    Kratos as Ludger? Zelos as Alvin? Nope I can’t see it, I get that -spoilers-, but I think Kratos should get the Alvin costume. I really wish they could just switch those two costumes around. Presea as Elise, yep I can definitely see that.

      Er… Might want to keep the spoilers out of the discussion for those that will be playing ToS for the first time when the HD edition comes out. Just saying.

      • Bobby Jennings

        This. That just spoiled me, D:

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Yeah, that’s what I was afraid of ;w;

    • Bobby Jennings

      Eh spoilers!

      • Randy Marsh

        Um sorry?…..

        • KingNigma

          At least edit the comment.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            I don’t think he knows how =3=

            Who would post spoilers anyway?! Some people, lol.

            • KingNigma

              Especially on an article like this. Seems like no one is safe :P

            • Randy Marsh

              Don’t assume, I do know how to edit comments lol, I don’t think I would be able to survive on Disqus without it. I do post spoilers, since I majority of people on Disqus have passed this game, I do occasionally forget that there are those that have yet to pass this game. So there, through the magic of comment editing, your spoiler has vanished.

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Okay, then don’t ASSUME people have “passed this game”. Also, it wasn’t MY spoiler. It was asked to be removed for the sake of everyone, but thanks.

  • Jesse

    Marta, not Malta. ^^;

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    Well Well Well, THIS I didn’t see.

    (Does that mean Emil can get a unlockable Ludger Costume? cause that’d be sweet.)

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Really? It’s pretty common for the next Tales game to have costumes from the previous Tales game and the ones before it. I’m honestly not surprised at all.

      • Bobby Jennings

        Well it’s different for us since we don’t have Xillia 2 yet, and probably wont have it until later in the year.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Hmmm… I’m not really sure how they will handle the ToX2 costumes for the NA release then. Surely they wouldn’t put them in anyway, despite NA players not knowing who they belong to? Lol.

          Maybe it will be a JP only thing since NA doesn’t have ToX2 yet.

          • Bobby Jennings

            That would suck

  • greg_67

    I saw it mentions that if you don’t have ToX 1 and 2 data you can still obtain the costumes via a 2nd playthrough I wonder if that will be the same case for the ToV that was mentioned before http://gematsu.com/2013/07/tales-of-symphonia-chronicles-adds-rita-judith-costumes.
    I know I would at least be able to have those ToV costumes for the localized release next year.

    • yuina

      Yeah, they’ve confirmed that this is the case with the Vesperia costumes as well.

      • greg_67

        Ok that’s good to know since I haven’t heard the news on that being the case so good to know that when we get the localized release ToV costumes shouldn’t be excluded from it. One thing they could do is perhaps a LE extra DLC costume or have it up on PSN for those who can’t wait to beat the game to unlock it.

  • Milla

    Good to hear they in the game, since i ordered the

    Tales of Symphonia Unisonant Pack (First Press Limited Edition) (Asian Version) and well Xillia 1 is asian ver and the rest is all JP ver T_T

  • syaznifaiq

    i assumed it s only in japan? coz we got TOS early next year and than TOX2

    • http://twitter.com/GNPixie Lynx

      Note ToX OR ToX2 saves.

  • Pyrofrost

    Man, NamcoBandai needs to get on posting a date for this game.
    All this “early 2014” talk doesn’t mean shit to me. If I import it, then I won’t be buying the NA version until it’s about $20

    • Bobby Jennings

      This here. Agreed 100%

  • http://lukalovesgames.blogspot.de/ Alkaid

    God damn it Namco Bandai, I can’t resist some costumes!!
    I’ll buy every costume DLC for Xillia and Xillia 2 so hearing this is a real treat.

    Too bad that we might not get Xillia 2 before Symphonia HD, like Japan did. *impatient*

  • fireemblembeast

    I like having xillia costumes but I just…I really can’t see those costumes working lol

    • http://lukalovesgames.blogspot.de/ Alkaid

      While I love costumes I have to agree.
      Most of the costumes “don’t really work” with the characters. The last time something kinda fit was basically Milla/Dhaos (they look so freakin similar), Alvin/Kratos (attitude/look-wise) and Ludger/Emil (only for the looks), Richard/Lelouch and Asbel/Suzaku as well as a few others.

      Character-wise the Yuri/Asch and Estellise/Tear ones were really weird as well, so was Sophie/Rutee/Anise or basically all of these: http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m1has33DQK1qksk96.png.
      Guess we will never know how they choose the costumes for the characters. It always seems all over the place. o__O’

  • fyi1191

    Kratos dress up like Ludger??

    I think Lloyd is the better choice, he’s dual wielding.

  • Astrid Huang

    OMG Xillia costumes!
    But to be honest, Alvin’s costume should go to Kratos instead of Zelos :/
    And Kratos in Ludger’s costume would be weird..
    The only one that might work well is Elize’s costume for Presea.
    I think they should be more considerate in choosing who gets which lol

  • PrinceHeir

    awesome stuff!!
