Tales of Xillia 2

Namco Bandai released the first English trailer and new screenshots of Tales of Xillia 2 at the Tokyo Game Show.

The one minute clip mentions an “unbearably cruel” trial, people “weak enough to ruin us all,” and a curse “you will come to understand.”

The RPG sequel, which follows new protagonist Ludger Will Kresnik, is due out for PlayStation 3 in North America, Europe, and Australasia in 2014.

Watch the trailer below. View the screenshots at the gallery.

    Damn, There might be hope for a localized Tales Vita game yet/

    Gonna platinum Xillia soon. I hope this actual signal the sooner-than-expected release date.

  • DrForbidden

    Nice. That means that the release is sooner rather than later.

    That’s an incredibly fat cat, though, I must say…

    • MrKappa

      Not really, ToX while it didn’t have a trailer had its dub for like 4-5 months before the game actually came out.

    More importantly… What the hell is “Australasia” ? Lol.

        It exists?! That’s crazy. How new is this term anyway? I mean, I’ve heard of Eurasia, but never Ausraliasia.

        Sounds like someone was trying to come up with a pun here, lol.

        • McPoo

          I’m 23 and I remember being taught it in Primary school. That said you very rarely hear people use it.

  • syaznifaiq

    i assumed this is Julius voice ..

  • Elvick

    Wait, why am I watching this? *stops self* Haven’t played the first yet. Derp.

  • Bobby Jennings

    Imported already but still excited! It’s as if I haven’t played it yet!

    That reminds me… I should really get started on the first game since it’s just sitting in my game collection drawer, still wrapped and never touched before…

    And Ni no Kuni…. And KH 1.5 HD…. I also bought some digital games from the sales as well and that’s not even counting my PS+ backlog… Sigh….

      The bane of all backlogs that have PS+: free games.

      Sort of glad I don’t have one, yet.

      • Gigus

        Ps+ is still a good thing lol. My HDD is getting full though -_-

        • McPoo

          As is mine. A lot of the time I download the games, then months later go through them and realise that I actually either have already finished it, or have no interest in it whatsoever.

          I’m starting to be picky about what I actually download now, I’m adding them all to my cart still, but only downloading the ones I definitely want.

        • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

          I’m not saying it isn’t “good” just saying that it doesn’t help with people’s backlog situations. :D

          • Gigus

            I know, just saying.

            • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

              Cool. I’m going to have to get a PS+, once I get a PS4. One membership spanning three (four if you count PSP cross compatibility with Vita). Surely cannot be missed.

              • Gigus

                They had a couple of promotions for getting ps+ during the summer. They had a “buy a one year subscription and get 3 months extra” and it was also connected to a “Spend ‘X’ amount of money and get ‘X’ amount back.

                Hitman Absolution and Saints Row The Third were in the IGC a few months ago. I have already beaten 3 games from the collection so I pretty much made my money back lol.

        • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

          Going into next gen? I have a plan while on PS+…. That is to buy a 2TB HDD, never hurts to be prepared after I underestimated PS+….

          • Gigus

            I’m gonna wait till 2014 hits for next-gen (already missed out on the wii u). As for upgrading the hard drive, I’ll wait it out. I don’t wanna switch to 2tb from a 500gig if the system isn’t going to take full advantage of the hard drives capabilities. If your a techy like me you would know that the ps3 had a bottle neck on speeds on any hard drive you installed on the system.
            Hopefully the ps4 won’t have any issues like that.

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        Seriously… Even if you don’t download them immediately after getting the games, you still keep them after the expiration claim date… I recommend it highly and I wanna see you break because of it…

        Who am I kidding? I don’t need to buy games anymore except the ones I really want(Japanese games, first day buys, etc)….

        • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

          I know that. It just so temptingly evil to have a PS+ account. I have missed out on my fair share of titles.

          As I’ve said to Gigus, I plan to get it when I get a PS4.

  • Kkdog4Sado

    Really excited for this one! Finished up my second playthrough of Xillia not too long ago, really want X2. Hoping for an exact relase date please!

  • Gigus

    I still need to finish the first one. Hopefully the voice acting will be better -_-

  • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

    Awesome! Just completed my first playthrough a few days ago. I’m totally hyped for this one. Just loved the chemistry within the team.

  • Jesse

    Now we just need an exact date.

  • kirby755

    I was hoping for the long trailer that plays Song 4 U! Aw well I guess I can wait anyway. But I can’t wait for Xillia 2 though it is annoying me the thought of which month it will come out. Hopefully not the same waiting time as Xillia.

  • LunarHaven

    GOTY 2014, is my bet! Can’t wait!

  • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

    The only Tales with a Protagonist that isnt Annoying?

    Count me in!

  • Erick Jahzeel Maradiaga Mairen

    Hell yeah tales games are the best

  • new_tradition

    Haha, so dramatic. I finished Jude’s POV and started on Milla’s, but I think I missed out on a lot of sub quests that’s suppose to explain more of the characters’ background, so I think I’ll start using a walkthrough this time (am I wrong, or is Jude’s daddy in this trailer?)

    Anyways, excited for Xillia 2!

  • artemisthemp

    Looking forward to playing this game and hopefully this time Namco won’t screw over EU customers

  • Zackasaur

    I am beyond excited! It’s so wonderful to have Namco localising these games. <3 I still want my Vita Tales, of course.
