So after all that anticipation and hype, Namco unveiled today at the Tales of Festival that the next instalment in the main series of Tales games is in fact a direct sequel to Tales of Xillia, aptly titled Tales of Xillia 2 which will also be exclusive to PS3.
Now this is rather unexpected, especially considering the fact that the game features a drastically different setting to the previous game, was said to mark a new chapter in the Tales Of Universe and that this is only the second time there has ever been a direct sequel in the Tales series long history (direct sequels are not commonplace in the franchise).
Tales Of Xillia 2 is said to take place 1 year after the previous game and will revolve around the question of ‘Would you destroy the world for a girl?’ This is incredibly confusing because the setting has drastically changed in 1 year and the entire theme of destroying the world for a girl is a little strange in the context of Tales Of Xillia. Regardless, it is a Tales game and fans are bound to be excited.
