Tales Of Xillia 2
Tales of Xillia 2 is the fourteenth “Mothership” title in the Tales series of games and is a direct sequel to 2011’s Tales of Xillia. The game is set a year after the events of Tales of Xillia, in world of Elympios, which subsists in harmony with the world of Rieze Maxia. While Elympios is a highly advanced, modern nation; Rieze Maxia relies on nature and ‘spirit artes’. The cultural difference in both worlds threatens to put them in disarray and opposition, even as they work together for piece. A girl named Elle Mel Marta is dispatched to the mysterious Land of Canaan by her father when the train is hijacked. She is rescued by Ludget Will Kresnik, but the train ends up crashing and Ludger is put into debt due to medical treatment by the Spirius Corporation. Ludger must now work for the Spirius Corporation while searching for his brother Julius Will Kresnik, who has been named the instigator of the train hijacking. Over the course of his adventure, Ludger finds himself joined by protagonists from Tales of Xillia.
The game uses the Cross Dual Raid Linear Motion Battle System (XDR-LMBS), which is a system similar to that seen in Tales of Xillia, the Double Raid Linear Motion Battle System. Four player characters head off into battle, with the player controlling one at a time while the others are controlled by an artificial intelligence and can be given specific instructions on how to conduct themselves while in the battle. XDR-LMBS also features a “Weapon Shift” system similar to the Style Shift system from Tales of Grace. Ludger can switch between three weapons: dual blades, a sledgehammer and dual guns. As opposed to the Lilium Orb, the game features an Allium Orb, which players can use along with Elemental Ore, which is harvested from battles and special harvest points. The Allium Orb features six elements, which can be leveled up, unlocking points, stats, skills and artes.
The game also features a minigame called Kitty Dispatch, in which the player must look for one hundred lost cats. The minigame helps unlock new items, which can’t otherwise be found. The game features by Motoi Sakuraba, long-time composer of the Tales Of series.

Tales of Xillia 2 Review
Bandai Namco’s Tales of Xillia 2 is a strange beast. Not just because it’s the sequel to a sequel, but because it also throws a bunch of new wrinkles into the formula while still sticking close to its roots. The question is, does it pay off?
