Two new game-play videos have been released for Namco’s upcoming PS3 exclusive Tales of Xillia. The videos focus on the combat sensibilities of two characters: Leia and Rowen. The adorable Leia swings a mean staff and appears to be quite nimble. Rowen demonstrates control over various magic spells and some close range attack techniques in his video. Don’t let his decrepit looks fool you. Is it just me or his design put one in the mind of Blazblue‘s Valkenhayn?
Tales of Xillia will finally be available in North America on August 6th and in Europe on August 9th. Serious series fans may be interested in picking up the game’s collector’s edition, but it seems to be sold out via pre-order at just about every retailer. If you find some in stock somewhere, please let me know! Check out the game-play videos below.
