It’s JRPG Tuesday for PlayStation owners. Today sees the release of both Tales of Xillia and Dragon’s Crown in North America.

Tales of Xillia (PlayStation 3)

The thirteenth mothership title in the long-running Tales series, the game follows Milla Maxwell, “a mysterious woman accompanied by four unseen beings,” and Jude Mathis, “a clever medical student attending school in the capital city of Fennmont,” as they travel the world of Rieze Maxia in a journey to restore the world’s mana and figure out why the spirits that have been peacefully co-existing with humans are beginning to die.

The game combines the series’ real-time battle system with the new Dual Raid Linear Motion Battle System, which allows two characters to link together and provide support attacks and powerful linked artes attacks.

Dragon’s Crown (PlayStation 3, PS Vita)

The latest game from Muramasa and Odin Sphere developer VanillaWare, this side-scrolling multiplayer beat ‘em up action RPG lets players choose from one of six character classes and journey through dungeons in search of the legendary treasure known as the “Dragon’s Crown.”

The game offers an “immersive skills system,” “rich quest system,” “expansive loot system,” unlockable artworks, cross-platform save data, online and local multiplayer, and “well over 100 hours of gameplay to fully clear the game.”

In addition to the game, a PlayStation 3 theme ($1.99) and set of avatars ($0.49 each) are now available on the PlayStation Store.
