The latest batch of Tales of Xilia screenshots introduces the rest of the game's key characters, Ivar and MuzÃ©t. (Musee in the Japanese version)
Namco Bandai also provided brief descriptions of the two characters:
"Ivar is from the family that have successively served as the "Handmaid of Maxwell" in the village which enshrines Maxwell. He has very strong pride as the Handmaid, and has been serving and always staying beside Milla all the time since childhood. However, with Jude's appearance, he one-sidedly judged that his position as the one to serve Milla is at stake, and is always argumentative against Jude. He is clever and has strong sense of justice, with very good martial arts skills utilizing two swords, but due to his short-temper and elitism, he often acts over-emotional and tends to screw up."
"A spirit with mysterious aura in which Jude and his friends meet during their adventure. She calls herself the "older sister of Milla" and comes along in the adventure, offering to help the party. When they first found her, her powers were lost due to the loss of Mana, but by being employed by Jude, she gradually retrieved her original powers. She always has an elegant smile, and is always at her own pace without being moved by anything. Similar to herself always floating in the air off the ground, her personality is elusive."
Tales of Xillia will be released for PS3 on August 6th in North America and August 9th in Europe.
