Namco Bandai shared a new trailer and details for Tales of Xillia 2 during its “Yapparai Tales of Special Stage” event at the Tokyo Game Show today.

Trailer

The trailer, attached at the bottom of this section (via Famitsu), shows:

  • Tales of Xillia 2‘s anime cutscenes.
  • Ludger’s brother Julius’ Corpse Shell transformation in a heated battle with Ludger’s transformation.
  • Julius appears to be a wanted criminal.
  • A possible, fatal shooting of Elle’s father.
  • A new arte for Ludger, “Assault Dance.”
  • A new theme song, “Song 4 U,” by Ayumi Hamasaki.

(Note: Ludger’s silence is reportedly due to editing in his voice work. He has lines.)
