Today we got our first new Tales of Xillia English screenshots of the year. They depict more battle scenes as well as the scenery of the game's overworld.
Tales of Xillia tells the story of Jude Mathis, an intelligent medical student studying at the hospital in the metropolitan city of Il Fan, and Milla Maxwell, a mysterious woman who is capable of summoning all types of elemental sprits. Players will be able to choose either of the two protagonists when they begin adventuring through the world of Rieze Maxia, a land where humans and spirits live together in peace. Together with the help from a diverse cast of characters, Jude and Milla's paths intersect as they set off on a quest to stop the kingdom of Rashugal from draining the world of all of its mana.
Tales of Xillia will be released sometime in 2013 in North America and Europe. Expect to see more detailed information on the English release quite soon.
