Four new videos for Tales of Xillia 2 are online today: Leia's Character Episode preview, Milla's first character video, Jude's special ability video and a battle video on the new Weak Point Link system.
Like we mentioned before, Agria makes an appearance.
The new Milla seems to be particularly good in cooking. In the video, Elle's requesting her to cook more of her soup.
Jude's special ability video.
In the previous Xillia, attacking your enemies with their weaknesses would only result in an increase in damage. This time, Xillia 2 adopts a weak point link system similar to what Tales of Destiny, Tales of Hearts and Tales of Graces have. In Xillia 2, there are 9 attributes for attacks available: Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Light, Shadow, Slash, Strike and Pierce. So, aside from the fixed increase in damage whenever you attack with enemy weakness, cooperating with a different attribute will increase the damage even more. This also seals enemy counterattack. As usual though, enemies have resistance to some attributes. Attacking them with their resistance shows the "REDUCE!" message, while attacking them with their weakness show the "WEAK!" message.
