Tales of Xillia is the upcoming 13th mothership title in the Tales series, for the PlayStation 3. Its characteristic genre name is RPG of Unwavering Convictions. The game is due to be released in Japan on September 8, 2011 and will feature a theme song called "progress" sung by Ayumi Hamasaki. The animated cutscenes are being produced by Ufotable, the studio behind the Tales of Symphonia OVA series instead of Production I.G, who have worked on the previous games in the series.
Tales of Xillia received a score of 39/40 (10/9/10/10) from Famitsu, overtaking Tales of Graces F as the highest-rated Tales title by the magazine.
Namco Bandai previously hinted that Tales of Xillia was on track to see record pre-orders for the series. Now Tales series producer Makoto Yoshizumi has confirmed it via Twitter. Two weeks ahead of release, and the PS3 title is officially the most pre-ordered Tales game ever,with 200,000 pre-orders, the game would already have sold near the equivalent of the Xbox 360 version of Vesperia and half that of the PS3 version.
- Unlike previous games in the series, Xillia has two main characters. At the beginning of the game, the player will choose one character and experience certain events from that character's point of view. The battle system is called the "Double Raid Linear Motion Battle System" (DR-LMBS), which focuses on two-character cooperative combat.
- Technical Points (TP) - Will be used in the game.
- Assault Counter (AC) - This newly introduced system is used up during performing normal attacks. Your attacks will remain connected as long as your AP is not 0. It is somewhat of a new form of Chain Capacity, in a way, though attacks will only consume 1 AP per attack. In example, having 10 AP can have you performing 10 consecutive attacks.
