The Tales series will be continuing its story next year with the release of Tales of Xillia for the PS3. According to Namco Bandai Games America’s VP of Marketing, Carlson Choi, the success of both Tales of the Abyss for 3DS and Tales of Graces f for PS3 made the decision to localize Xillia “one of the easiest decisions we have ever made.”
Medical student Jude Mathis and the mysterious Milla Maxwell live alongside spirits in the kingdom of Rashugal. Tales of Xillia’s story begins with the Kingdom of Rashugal attempting to create a powerful new device that requires the planet’s mana to operate. The duo, realizing the danger the experiments pose, independently set out to restore Rieze Maxia’s mana and eventually cross paths as players work towards their shared goal. The Linear Motion Battle System will return for Xillia, but a new mechanic known as the Double Raid Linear Motion Battle System will be introduced that will allow both to team up for combo attacks.
