Tales of Xillia!

by wfgodbold

Behold!

Animation by Ufotable (of Kara no Kyoukai fame) instead of Production IG, theme song by Ayumi Hamasaki, music by Motoi Sakuraba, and character designs by *both* Kousuke Fujishima (Abyss, Vesperia, Symphonia) and Mutsumi Inomata (Eternia, Hearts, Graces)!

Tales of Xillia (pronounced ex-illia) is slated for a 2011 release on the PS3; everything in the trailer looks great, from the backgrounds and environments to the characters and their animations.

The two main characters we see in the trailer are Jude Matis (voiced by Tsubasa Yonaga), a brawler, and Mira Maxwell (voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro), a swordswoman who has some connection to the spirits.

Unlike past Tales, both Jude and Mira are apparently main characters; perhaps there will be points in the game where they will be split up and in control of two sub-parties, like in Final Fantasy XIII.

The trailer opens with Mira musing on the death of the spirits, and ends with a rephrasing of the quote from the opening of Tales of Phantasia, “If there is evil in this world, it lurks in the hearts of man.”

Update:  SiliconEra has some more info on the battle system.
