The Tales of Xillia panel over at WonderCon 2013 is officially over! Here's some news gathered from the panel! First off, nope, it looks like they STILL haven't announced the proper release date. I'm hoping that bit of news will be what the Your Tales Of Twitter teased that will be coming up in a couple of weeks.
Next up, voice actors. So far, only Jude and Milla's VAs were officially revealed: as many guessed, Sam Riegel for Jude Mathis, and Minae Noji for Milla Maxwell. Though Sam was there, Minae wasn't around because of a shooting for a movie. She had a pre-recorded introduction video instead, with her ordering a burger and fries in Milla's voice. Here it is:
They're also trying to get a "Western release for the Milla Maxwell figure". I'm assuming they mean the one by Alter. Oh, apparently they mean the Ichiban Kuji Milla Maxwell figure, not the one by Alter.
There's also a new mini trailer/video that features a bit of the other characters' voices (mainly a bit of Elize, and some of Alvin and Rowen). Updated with a better video from Kazemon15. Thanks!
Baba-san also apparently mentioned that they're trying to lessen the time it takes to localize not-yet localized games. Awesome.
Most of the information was from Arrei from the Tales Forums, who was there at the event. Thank you very much!
