Character Status Art+Relationship system+cameo costume screenshot

They won't update the official art. Everything's been decided already. They wouldn't have told the artists to make the box art unless they had already decided each character's role.

I just hope they at least make Muse playable since she's on the box. Elle's already on the box art I wish they were secretly hiding the fact that she's playable >_<

Yeah I think they wouldn't show that artwork unless it meant most of the characters have already been revealed. Based on recent Tales games, this is probably going to be Xillia 2's boxart too.

And I think their idea is that the party is balanced gender-wise, even if Elle isn't playable. The core group is technically four girls and four guys (if Gaius and Musee are playable, it's five girls and five guys).

You gotta use the Rebirth logic here, heh.

Haha I never thought about how they both have a main boy/npc girl. It's still such a shame after Tales had its first female main character (even if the spotlight was shared with Jude). Especially after seeing how popular Milla seems to be. She beat Jude in the popularity poll, and my Milla sidequest guide has been viewed almost 3x as much as my Jude guide lol (not that the latter data is an accurate popularity count, nor does it have anything to do with her popularity in Japan).

Does anyone else think Milla's status art look off? I don't know if it's the perspective or what... it might just be her way too skinny waist which makes her head look too big.


I thought the same thing. I love her new outfit--much better than her original--but for some reason, her shoulders and bust look really weird to me...

Randomness. Awesomeness. And comics.

Never saw it that way. What if those pocket watches had the power to "fast foward" a person's age and Elle uses it on herself to make herself 10 years older and becomes a playable character at the halfway point of the game. Maybe Ludger and the group are in danger of being killed or something.

Curious about that "?" character, hoping it would be Gaius.

box art is never a 100% confirmation on the cast as they don't always put the entire cast on it. 2 of the characters on the box art wern't playable in the last game either. i wouldn't get my hopes up just yet for a playable gaius and muse but it would be nice if they were.
