About Tales of Xillia
Tales of Xillia features two main characters, Jude Mathis and Milla Maxwell. Both of whom have their own anime opening depending on who you pick to play as. The game was released in Japan on September 8, 2011 and features a theme song called "progress" which is sung by Ayumi Hamasaki. Tales of Xillia is also the first Tales game to have an over-the-shoulder camera, as opposed to the top-down camera of previous Tales games.
The game takes place in the world of Liese Maxia, a world where humans, spirits and monsters are able to coexist together in harmony. There are two main countries in Liese Maxia that are currently fighting for supremacy, they are La Shugall and A Jule. La Shugall is an empire lying in south and is a much larger country then A Jule. La Shugall is highly focused on spirit artes, research, and education. This in turn has granted the country with incredible majesty and prosperity. A Jule however is a federation of small countries and tribes located toward the north. A Jule is a developing country who use monsters for daily life and militaristic affairs.
Depending on who you pick (Jude or Milla) to start the game with the story will start out at different points but both characters will finally meet in the Lafort Research Institute.
