Fresh Xenosaga Episode II Details, Media
04.03.04 - 8:04 PM

Namco has revealed a fresh round of information tidbits regarding its PlayStation 2 sequel Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Boese (Beyond Good and Evil). The game will feature the reunion of Chaos and Shion's brother Jin, who first met on Miltia 14 years ago. Chaos is accompanying Shion, who visits her brother at their family's home on Second Miltia. During their conversation, Jin remarks that it feels as if Chaos has been living for several hundred years longer than he himself. The main means of transportation in Episode II will again be the spaceship Elsa. The cargo ship, which is manned by Captain Mathews, Tony and Hammer, now features a significantly redesigned layout, making the craft much larger than it used to be in Episode I. Among other facilities it also hosts the Robot Academy. Players will also be able to visit a familiar location from Episode I, the re-built Kukai Foundation. Following the Gnosis attack, its residents have quickly rebuilt their city, hence players can look forward to revisiting familiar places like the Ironman and take a look at new locations like the Fishing Lab.

Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Boese will be available in Japan on June 24th for 6,980 yen ($66.78 US). The game's limited edition Premium Box will carry a price tag of 17,800 yen ($170.29 US).

UPDATE: We have added to the media gallery 36 new screen shots and 8 pieces of artwork (including a very nice CG of Chaos) worth checking out. Enjoy!
