JUDE MATHIS AND LEIA ROLANDO RETURN FOR TALES OF XILLIA 2
BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. today released new assets for TALES OF XILLIA® 2. The new assets focus on returning characters; Jude Mathis and Leia Rolando, who both befriend the main characters Ludger and Elle as they make their way to the Land of Canaan. Players will be able to meet up and partner with many returning characters from TALES OF XILLIA® along Ludger and Elle’s journey and learn about their lives over the past year through character specific side stories throughout the game.
Much has changed for Jude in the past year. In a world where the schism—which previously divided the worlds of Rieze Maxia and Elympios – has been dispelled at last, Jude toils endlessly in his research of spyrite: an alternative energy source which could replace spyrix and solve Elympios’ energy crisis without the expense of the spirits. If he could perfect it, spyrite could be the key to eliminating the tension between the two worlds and truly uniting their people once and for all—but there are those that would try to stop him.
Leia has always been energetic and inquisitive, and this nature of hers has led her to become a reporter for a local newspaper in Elympios, as she aims to promote cultural understanding between the two nations through the articles she writes. Her editor isn’t so easily impressed, however, and she works hard endlessly in pursuit of a story that’ll warm him up to her writing. For better or for worse though, she may get the scoop of a lifetime sooner than she thinks.
TALES OF XILLIA 2 will be available August 19, 2014 throughout the Americas exclusively on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. A TALES OF XILLIA 2 Collector’s Edition is also available for $129.99 and includes the following items: TALES OF XILLIA 2 software, Ludger Kresnik figure, Elle’s PocketWatch replica compact, Rollo plush charm, TALES OF XILLIA 2 music selection CD, TALES OF XILLIA 2 art book and classic TALES OF costume DLC.
