Following the news of Tales of Xillia's special editions, Namco Bandai has released a new batch of screenshots and videos featuring the game's characters Leia and Rowen.
Tales of Xillia tells the story of Jude Mathis, an intelligent medical student studying at the hospital in the metropolitan city of Fennmont, and Milla Maxwell, a mysterious woman who is capable of summoning all types of elemental spirits. 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 of 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 on August 6 in North America and August 9 in Europe. Those over in Europe who buy the initial print run of the game will be able to get a special Day 1 Edition version with 52-page artbook until supplies last at no extra charge. Both regions also currently are accepting pre-orders for a special Collector's Edition retailing for £79.99 in Europe and $99.99 in North America which includes a collectable Milla Maxwell figurine with base and an extra 48 pages to the Day 1 Edition artbook.
