While recent focus of Tales of Xillia 2 videos have been focused on Leia and Alvin – recurring characters from Tales of Xillia, this time around Namco Bandai have chosen to promote Julius, the brother of main character Ludger.
In addition, scans from the latest issue of V-Jump announces the return of three characters from Tales of Xillia along with a new character. Elise Lutas and Tipo are the first two who have been confirmed to return. Now less shy, Elise is enjoying her life as a student in Kalaha Schall alongside Tipo, who is her talking doll (and my personal favorite character from the original game). In addition, Rowen H. Ilbert will also return as prime minister of Liese-Maxia. Elise and Rowen will see new costume changes, Elise’s changing to a school uniform and Rowen to one more appropriate for a Prime Minister. It is unconfirmed if either of them will return as playable characters.
The fourth character and newcomer is Beasley Kalush Baku, Clanspia Company’s CEO and is set to be a character important to the storyline.
