Hey everyone, PanbanRichard here. Just like last year, I'll be holding a marathon stream of Tales games from this Sunday, August 10th to Monday, August 18th called Tales of Marathon Stream 2. It is an event to celebrate the localization of Tales of Xillia 2 outside of Japan.
Essentially, I'll be playing through three games straight from the Tales series before the US localization of Tales of Xillia 2. Two of the games were determined by votes a while ago, and they are Tales of the Abyss and Tales of Destiny. The last of which is Tales of Xillia, as it makes sense to end off the marathon on the prequel of the next localized release.
Commentary will be provided by myself and the following guests who'll appear throughout the stream:
- Aselia Con committee members Anthony, Matt & Jhericca
- Youtube challenge players Vercsase and dagoldenclip2
- Absolute Zero translator throughhim413
- ClesStahn, webmaster of Tales-Central & Clesstahn.com
- Shawn, webmaster of Tales Union
- Bandai Namco Games/Tales of Europe Community Manager Isshak
- Europe's 2013 Tales of Ambassador Shiina
- Europe's 2014 Tales of Ambassador Lex
Click here for a link to the stream. Each day, the stream is scheduled from 10 AM to 10 PM (-6 GMT) consisting of eleven hours of gameplay with two breaks in between. Just like last year, there will also be a Tales of Xillia 2 Collector's Edition (US Version) giveaway during the stream. Rules for the giveaway can be viewed here, and are illustrated in the video below:
Hope to see you all there as we wait for Tales of Xillia 2's localization!
