Tales of Xillia 2 Shows Alvin And Elize Videos
Next month, Western audiences will finally be able to continue their adventure in Tales of Xillia 2, which released two new videos to introduce some characters. It’s more of a repetition than an introduction though, as both Alvin and Elize have been in the series before.
In the first Tales of Xillia, Alvin is a party member who is often shady and mysterious. However, the striking charmer is handy with a firearm, making them indispensable on the battlefield.
As Tales of Xillia 2 takes place after the events of the first, Alvin and previous protagonist Jude are now well-acquainted. In the clip, they discuss the new events going through the land.
Their conversation takes place with some new characters, Ludger and Ellie, with the former also getting caught up in a conversation system for the game. It’s your basic good-or-bad option, but additions to the already engaging conversations are welcome regardless.
Tales of Xillia 2 also shows a little more combat, in line with the rest of the Tales franchise. Monsters are tackled on a separate playing field in real time. Linking with another party member and performing captured chain moves return to the game.
Since Elize was a child in the previous title, time past now shows a more grown teen schoolgirl in Tales of Xillia 2, outfit and all. Moreover, the Teepo puppet always by Elize’s side returns as well, still an eager and floating big mouth.
Combat sections are similar to those of Alvin, except Elize has special moves that involve Teepo. It has to do with the magical element they use in Tales of Xillia 2.
Each clip ends with a reminder that Tales of Xillia 2 has a collector’s edition that comes with a figurine and more added goodies.
