The set will come with a figure each of Luke and Asch that have a platform meant to have them stand together back to back (or facing each other, whatever you may prefer). From the pictures, it appears the figures are removable and are able to stand alone without the platform. The figures are 1/8 in scale.

Also exclusive to Kotobukiya Shop, those who will pre-order from them will come with alternative "smiling" faces for both characters.

The set is on sale for 25,000 Yen (tax excluded) and will be released in June 2021. Pre-orders are now open at physical Kotobukiya stores or via the Kotobukiya Japan online shop only until February 19, 2021.

Pre-orders outside of Japan (so no smiling face parts) are available here:

A short trailer featuring the figures was also showed during the 25th Anniversary Live Stream.

Tales of the Abyss
Tales of the AbyssTales of the Abyss is the eighth mothership title of the series initially released for the PlayStation 2 in Japan in the same year as Tales of Legendia. It is the Tales of Series 10th Anniversary title. The game was later ported to the Nintendo 3DS and was adapted into a 26-episode TV anime by Sunrise. Abyss tells the story of Luke, a young noble whose life turns upside down upon meeting a mysterious girl named Tear. The game appears to be influenced by musical themes.
