Details continue to surface about Tales of Xillia 2. Regarding characters, you’ll be able to switch from main character Rudger to other party members in battle, as is common in Tales games. Less common is that Elle, the female lead, does not take part in battle, being only eight years old. The pair are only a journey to the land of Kanan, where supposedly one can have a wish fulfilled; Elle’s wish is to help her father.
Storywise, the game starts in the city of Trigaf, the home of both Rudger and the large corporation known as Klanspia Company. At the game’s opening, Rudger is trying to find work with them. Gameplay systems reportedly tie into the broader theme of “Are you prepared to destroy the world?” though how, exactly, is unclear.
