BANDAI NAMCO Games today announced the NA release of Tales of Xillia 2, a PS3 game that focuses on the events a year after the climactic end of its prequel. Players assume the role of Ludger Kresnik, a young man with a zest of cooking who lives with his older brother and his cat, named Rollo. On his way to his first day at work for a local cafeteria he runs into a young girl named Elle Marta and the two soon become involved in an accident that will change both of their lives forever.
Tales of Xillia 2 focuses its story theme around the concept of "choice", which is also expressed heavily in the game's overall gameplay mechanics. Throughout Ludger's journey the player will be able to decide how he reacts to various characters and situations. These choices can cause the story to branch out into different paths depending on the player's decisions.
Players who have a save game file from both Tales of Graces f and Tales of Xillia will be able to enjoy exclusive bonus items for Tales of Xillia 2.
Tales of Xillia 2 will arrive across Europe and Australasia on August 22nd 2014.
