Tales of Xillia 2 is the direct sequel to Tales of Xillia, set one year later. It features a new character, Ludger Will Kresnik, as protagonist. New characters Nova, Elle, Julius, and Vell join ToX playables Rowen, Elise, and Leia.
The game is stated have a good chance for an international release if the first Tales of Xillia sells well.
Tales of Xillia uses another modification of the Tales battle system known as XDR-LMBS, which is based on ToX1's battle system with dashes of Devil May Cry's weapon switching system, Tales of Vesperia's Fatal Strikes, and Tales of Graces' weakness-exploiting system and more robust side-stepping functionality. Also, Ludger can enter a sort of pocket dimension in a "Devil Trigger-esque" mode slaying enemies solo.
Xillia 2 was the first Tales game developed after the shutdown of Namco Tales Studio Ltd., and the core development team from there remains.
