Famitsu.com's latest screenshot update for Tales of Xillia 2 includes a look at two and a half characters.
First up, a couple of returning characters from the original: Jude and Ivar. Jude was the main character in the original. He has apparently lost the school boy youthfulness he showed in the original. Ivar is now a "multi agent" with the Clanspia Company.
The other "half" character is main character Ludger in his alternate form. We miswrote the name for this before. It's actually "Gaikaku." As detailed earlier today, Ludger has at least two levels of Gaikaku form.
