Tales of Xillia 2 Gameplay and Story Details
Guess which major character won't be playable in battle?
First solid gameplay details have surfaced on Tales of Xillia 2. Tales Source has a detailed writeup from this week's Famitsu.
At the game's announcement a few weeks back, we were introduced to two characters, Rudger and Elle.
Rudger is 170cm tall and 20-years-old. He lives with his older brother in Trigraf. His brother is busy at work, so he takes care of the house, including caring for his pet, Lulu. From feeding his brother, he's become quite good at preparing a variety of foods.
Elle is 130cm tall and 8-years-old. She's making her travels to the land of Kanan, where legend has it one can fulfill any wish. It seems that Elle wants to use this to help her father. Along the way, she meets Rudger in Trigraf, and the two promise to go to Kana together.
On the gameplay front, first the big news: Elle will not take part in battle.
