With Tales of Xillia 2 releasing later this month, developer Namco Bandai has prepared a special two-part video that will update everyone to the events that lead through to the sequel.
Tales of Xillia 2 happens exactly a year after the events of the first Xillia game. The storyline of the first actually transitions very smoothly into the beginning of Tales of Xillia 2. Hence, Namco Bandai deemed it important to update everyone on the storyline, in case there are those who missed out on the first game or can’t remember exactly what took place.
That being said, you don’t really need to play the first Xillia game before playing the sequel. Tales of Xillia 2 features a whole new storyline with new characters and a new setting.
The game follows the story of Ludger Kresnik and Elle Marta as they set off on an epic adventure to reach the Land of Canaan. Along the way, Ludger and Elle will meet up with the main cast of characters from Tales of Xillia. Each character will feature his or her own side story that reveals what they have been up to for the past year.
While the released video will give you a deep insight on the returning characters and storyline, be warned that it contains plenty of spoilers. If you don’t want to ruin your experience, then refrain from watching it, atleast until you’ve gone through the first game.
Tales of Xillia 2 releases for the PlayStation 3 on August 22.
