Japan's way ahead of us in the Tales of the Rays game. The next arc, Mirrage Prison, will be releasing sometime next year.
Check out the new trailer:
This new arc for Tales of the Rays features a new opening, new characters and a new hero:
"I will protect Lady Mileena! I promised my master I would do so!"
The new hero is named Kocis and is voiced by Kouki Uchiyama (Roxas in Kingdom Hearts, Neku in The World Ends With You). A Mirrist that inherited Ix's Mirrage Arts and skills, he is loyal to Ix and calls him "Master." He will be the main protagonist of this arc in Ix's place.
Mileena Weiss is still in the game, along with Mystery Guy who I assume is just Ix (same voice actor, Natsuki Hanae). The two are now sporting darker wardrobe, giving them this slight hint of villainy. But that's just me.
New characters included in this arc are Ludger Kresnik and Elle from Tales of Xillia 2. From the key visual and knowing the current arc of Tales of the Rays, it'll be a lot more.
To give you an idea, these are all the available characters in the Japan version of Tales of the Rays:
And said roster will also be adding Estelle and Karol from Tales of Vesperia.
So if we're ever going to get the Mirrage Prison arc overseas, it will be taking time.
Lastly, Tales of the Rays will be getting animated shorts that will be available online soon entitled "Tales of the Rays Theater."
