Tales of Xillia officially unveiled

Namco Bandai held the 15th Anniversary Commemoration Party for Tales in Tokyo today, revealing full details and media on PlayStation 3’s Tales of Xillia.

The game, as detailed in an earlier Jump report, features two main characters: Shuto Matis (male) and Mira Maxwell (female). Players will choose one from the two to play as; each character has a different story to experience.

Xillia is set in a world known as “Liese Maxia,” where humans, demons, and spirits live together. Mira is actually a master of the spirits, meaning she can control the four elements.

The battle system, dubbed the Double Raid Linear Motion Battle System, has Shuto and Mira teaming up for combat. A better explanation of what that looks like can be seen in the trailer, around the 1-minute mark.

The official site for Tales of Xillia is live. Check it out through here. As of yet, it contains a nothing but a trailer and some back-drops. It does list the game as an “RPG of Steadfast Convictions,” though. We’ve attached the trailer below for those who want quick access. The first screenshot of the game can be seen at the gallery.

Thanks, Andriasang.
