Tales of Xillia is the latest episode in the beloved Tales of series. The game follows Jude Mathis, a clever medical student attending school in the capital city, and Milla Maxwell, a mysterious woman accompanied by four unseen beings. Players will be able to choose either Jude or Milla at the outset of their adventure through the world of Rieze Maxia, where humans and spirits live together in harmony.  The kingdom of Rashugal has been experimenting with a powerful source that led to draining the mana from the world.  Realizing the harm it is inflicting on the world, Jude and Milla set off on a journey to destroy it and restore the mana back to the world. 

With the latest version of the most dynamic battle system seen in JRPG gaming, the players will have an advantage in the battle by using Linked Combat System to link two characters to team up in terms of attack, defence and support. They will enjoy more tactical battles by changing party members with backup members even during the battle.

The title has been developed by NAMCO BANDAI Studios Inc. in Japan and is the first collaboration between the two prominent character designers, Mutsumi Inomata and Kosuke Fujishima, who have designed lots of characters for previous games in the Tales of series.
