    >> Check out the Tales of Marathon Stream 2 Celebrating Tales of Xillia 2's Localization!

    PanbanRichard

    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!

    >> New Tales of Zestiria Scans - Kamui Transformations, New Key Characters and Status Art Illustrations

    a745

    The latest issue of Tales of Zestiria features Sorey's Kamui mode transformations, new key characters and status art illustrations.




    Pressing L1 activates Kamui mode with Sorey's partner. Note that Sorey's Kamui mode form actually has the same look, just with different colors and attack features.

    For Mikleo's, Sorey uses a bow and arrow in Kamui mode, which can have long ranges both horizontally and diagonally. When you chain 3 consecutive attacks, the bow and arrow transforms into a massive, more powerful one.

    Edna's allows the use of fist power as well as the ability to summon rock pillars from the earth. Chaining 3 consecutive attacks turns the fists into gigantic ones.


    Dezel's uses swords that spin around like a tornado. When chaining 3 consecutive attacks, the swords take the form of giant wings.

    Also in the scan mentioned are the Normin creatures, which is what the small doll Edna has is based on. Normin are creatures of the Divine found in various places, and meeting them grants special abilities. The Normin apparently have a Kansai dialect.


    We also have two new characters, one mentioned already in Jump. From the look of things, these guys seem to be more like key characters or NPCs, but we're still not sure at the moment.

    Sergei Strelka (Serugei sutoreruka, romanization not yet official)
    Voiced by: Hideyuki Hori
    "I humbly ask of you, Priest Sorey. Can you find out the truth about the Caridnal?"
    - The hot-blooded leader of the knights of the Lowlance Empire. His complete loyalty to the Empire and dedication to the people has earned him everyone's respect, including the deep trust of those under his ranks. His battle prowess crosses that of a normal human, meaning that he is able to react to even the unseen attacks of the Divine.

    Lucas (ruukasu, romanization not yet official)
    Voiced by: Takanori Hoshino
    - A mercenary whose name is known even between the two countries' generals. The men under his leadership are said to compare even to that of an army. At present, he is under the employment of the Highland Kingdom.


    We also have what seem to be the status art illustrations of the characters by ufotable.

    Thanks to @Kurushii for the scans!

    Tales of Zestiria will be released in Japan, North America and Europe sometime in the future. Pre-orders are now available at the following shops:

    >> AC's Tales of Colors 2 Contest! Win Tales of Xillia 2's Collector's Editions and Much More!

    a745


    Tales of Xillia 2's release is literally just around the corner, so it's time for AC's big Tales of Xillia 2 contest! Presenting AC's Tales of Colors 2 Contest! You can win a Tales of Xillia 2 Collector's Edition and much, much more!

    From the name alone, the contest is similar to our previous Tales of Xillia contest, which was called AC's Tales of Colors Contest. Mechanics are pretty similar to that contest, but with a twist, and slightly more difficult (...maybe).


    Like in the previous Tales of Colors, the contestants are tasked to identify specific Tales of characters from a given set of color palettes. But instead of just a simple palette of 4 colors for a character, you guys will be given a mosaiced picture of a Tales of character from a SCREENSHOT from a TALES OPENING VIDEO. That's right - all the pictures here were taken from Tales of openings, from screenshots. They're distorted and mosaiced, and you are tasked to identify who the character is, specifically.

    There are a total of 30 screenshots that need to be identified. ALL of these screenshots were taken from the openings of TALES MOTHERSHIP TITLES ONLY.

    THE SCREENSHOTS ARE HERE IN THE GALLERY.


    SCREENSHOTS THAT NEED TO BE IDENTIFIED HAVE A NUMBER AT THE UPPER RIGHT


    Winners will be chosen based on those who have the most number of correct answers. i.e. the ones with the highest number of correct answers will determine the winner. Should there be multiple people with the same highest or perfect scores, the winners will be drawn via a random lottery.

    Unlike in the previous contest, this time, we will give no hints.

    Please send your entries (in a numbered fashion) with the subject "AC Tales of Colors 2 Contest Entry" to contact@abyssalchronicles.com. Please include your desired nickname/username and country you are currently residing in. This time, we will only accept one entry from each contestant with no amendments or follow-up corrections allowed. Deadline for entries is on August 17, 2014, 8pm Philippines Time. The contest is open worldwide!

    Specific rules that need to be followed:

    1. As much as possible, please send only ONE entry per household. Siblings/relatives living under the same roof who want to join are just encouraged to just brainstorm for their entry and submit only one under one name.

    2. Please send only ONE entry. DO NOT create fake e-mails and such to submit multiple entries. We WILL find out, and that person will be banned from this contest and from any other contest AC will have in the future. And no, we will not be informing you that you've been banned. Note that there are already a few people banned from our last Colors contest.

    3. You may leave some parts blank if you really don't know the answer. Do note that you are only allowed to send your entry ONCE, and are not allowed to make amendments whatsoever.

    4. Incomplete entries (i.e. no country of location) will not be accepted. Entries with blanks because you don't know the answer is fine.

    5. Brainstorming with people online and is okay, or posting your (assumingly correct) answers is up to you, but note that the more people who have the correct answer, the bigger your own competition.


    And of course, we're not giving you all this trouble for nothing! Here are the prizes that can be won from our big contest!

    Please note the various notes/rules regarding the contest prizes below:
    * - Regardless of the winners' regions, the Collector's Editions will be the US versions.
    ** - Regardless of the winners' regions, the Prima Games guide is under US printing, and hence, most probably the DLC code will be applicable to US PSN accounts only.
    *** - We were given specific sizes for the MCM Expo T-shirts, hence, it'll be a winner priority basis like it was before in our Tales of Xillia contest. i.e. the Grand Prize winner gets to choose his/her size first, then the 1st runner-up, and so on until te 4th-runner up winner will have to make do with whatever size is left.
    **** - 2nd and 3rd runner-up winners will either get the regular Tales of Xillia 2 game (if they're from the US) or the Day One Edition (if they're from Europe). The prize is entirely dependent on your region where you live - if you're from the US, you get the regular game for the US region; if you're from Europe, you get the Day One edition (while supplies last). Winners outside of these regions can choose their preferred version.

    A big thank you to Bandai Namco Games America and Bandai Namco Games UK for providing some of the prizes! Other prizes are provided for by AC unless otherwise stated above.

    Other important notes that you need to know:
    1.) Please allow a minimum of 1 month after the game's official release for the prizes to arrive at your doorstep, since we still need time to sort them out and for the prizes to arrive to AC's own people before we can send them out. We apologize for the inconvenience.
    2.) Some prizes, especially the ones in the Grand Prizes and 1st-Runner Prizes, will be shipped from separate locations (i.e. some will come from a745 from the Philippines, some will come from sukotsuto from the US, etc.), and hence the winners will not receive ALL the prizes from 1 package alone. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    >> New Tales of Zestiria Scan - Sorey's Other Kamui Mode Fusions, Partner Change System and Normin

    a745

    The latest issue of Jump Magazine finally reveals the other Kamui Mode fusions Sorey has with the other Divine characters, along with new field and battle features.


    The magazine first introduces a new Partner Change System, which allows you to change your partner Divine at any given time, even from those who are not within the current battle.


    • Kamui Mode with Lailah - As seen before, fusion with Lailah allows Sorey to weild a giant sword that produces flames, allowing you to mow down the enemy with a single slash.

    • Kamui Mode with Mikleo - Allows Sorey to weild an elegant bow and arrow. It allows for long-ranges, even vertically, and lets you strike all enemies at once.

    • Kamui Mode with Edna - Allows Sorey incredible power with his fists. They're not just for hitting enemies, but also for making pillars of earth emerge from the ground to damage enemies.

    • Kamui Mode with Dezel - Allows Sorey to take to the air with wings made of swords. Enemies are at the mercy of tornadoes. After 3 combos, the swords transform into huge wings.

    If you'll notice, the magazine also uses what seems to be the characters' status artwork.


    The stuffed doll Normin we see on Edna is actually a doll of a Divine creature also called, well, Normin. Throughout the journey, the party will encounter these creatures. Helping them out will apparently grant some special benefits.


    There's also a new (NPC?) character shown in the magazine, at the lower left. His name is Sergei (serugei, romanization not yet official), a leader of the knights from the Lowlance Empire. He apparently will be an enemy to Sorey and the rest?

    Tales of Zestiria will be released in Japan, North America and Europe sometime in the future. Pre-orders are now available at the following shops:

    >> See How Seamless Battles Work In Tales of Zestiria, Plus Mikleo and Lailah Videos

    a745

    The scheduled Tales of Zestiria Nico Nico Douga Live Stream Event finally showed how seamless transitions in between field and battles work, along with a new short trailer showing the game's characters.



    The "transition" shows the field character (in this video, Sorey) stepping back off screen as he comes into contact with the enemy. In a wave of faint light, the other accompanying enemies appear, and the camera zooms out to show Sorey and the other party members. This is followed by the character icons appearing.



    The character videos of Mikleo and Lailah show a bit about their roles in the game's story. Mikleo is an all-around friend to Sorey, while we see a bit of Lailah's enthusiasm with the world and her perception of Sorey.

    Tales of Zestiria will be released in Japan, North America and Europe sometime in the future. Pre-orders are now available at the following shops:
