I have no idea what Namco was thinking with the latest Tales of Xillia trailer

by wfgodbold

On the one hand, it shows just about every part of the game; we finally get to see some of the animated cutscenes (and ufotable did a very nice job), and we find out more about the game world and the burgeoning conflict between the two nations.

On the other hand, the in-engine cutscenes included in the trailer seem to give away some major plot points. It’s possible that the revelations regarding the true nature of Millia Maxwell are revealed to the player early in the game (and for that matter, if you’re familiar with how Maxwell has shown up in previous Tales of games, you can probably guess at her true nature); I won’t know for sure until I get my copy from NCSX.

It is looking like Tales of Xillia is going to tie into the world of Tales of Phantasia and Tales of Symphonia; the narrator at the beginning repeats the Edward D. Morrison quote from the first game, “If there is evil in this world, it lurks in the heart of Man.”

  1. Wait, Maxwell has shown up in previews tales games? I’d like to know where so I can see for myself!

    • Maxwell has been in Phantasia, Eternia (Destiny 2 in the US), Symphonia, and the Narikiri Dungeon games (in a different form, though).

      Given Milia’s relationship with the four elemental spirits in the Xillia trailers, it’s not hard to guess at her true form…
