Originally released in Japan in 2011, Tales of Xillia is now due for release 9th August 2013, making it finally available worldwide. This JRPG is the thirteenth core product of the Tales series, and was developed by Namco Tales Studio and published by Namco Bandai Games.
The game revolves around the two main characters Jude Mathis and Milla Maxwell, who live in a world known as Rieze Maxia. Xillia will take you on an extraordinary journey throughout this fictional world, a world isolated by a magical barrier, separated from Elympios, the rest of the world. This barrier was created two thousand years ago by Maxwell, a spirit that wanted to help both humans and spirits escape the Spyrix, a power source that consumes spirits in order to produce its power.
In the present, medical student Jude Mathis meets Milla Maxwell, the successor to the spirit Maxwell, as he’s investigating a suspicious military research facility. Together, they discover a Spyrix-powered weapon called the Lance of Kresnik had been created at the facility, and it becomes apparent they’re not safe in their bubble any longer…
