Editor's Note: There's no word of a western release but considering Namco recently filed North American and European trademarks for the original Tales of Xillia, there's a slim chance this sequel could be made available outside of Japan ... someday.
The epic RPG series Tales will be getting its second direct sequel, Tales of Xillia 2 (which takes place 1 year after Xillia's ending).
Xillia 2 will use a "Path System," which will give players the option to choose between different story paths during cutscenes,kinda like those old choose your own adventure books.
It has also been revealed that the main character uses duel guns, duel swords and a hammer in battle. Players will also be able to switch combat styles in a fashion similar to .Hack GU.
Other than that, no details have been given. But there's a trailer, which can be viewed below:
Tales of Xillia 2 will be released in Japan some time during Q4 2012.
