Another Tales of Xillia Character Revealed She has a talking teddy bear!03.09.11 - 6:57 PM
The newest Tales of Xillia
character to be announced is Elise Lutas. She's featured in this week's Shounen Jump and it's all about her and her talking teddy bear named Tippo. Maybe she's trying to compete with the awesomeness of Anise's giant stuffed cat from Tales of the Abyss
Anyway, Elise first meets the main characters Jude and Milla in a tiny village, but she's not good at first impressions because she's scared of talking to new people. Soon Jude and Milla get her to open up to them and they find out she is a spirit wielder. Also, Elise's teddy bear, Tippo, who is voiced by Haruna Ikezawa, not only serves as her companion, but also is her battle weapon. Tippo takes a bite out of enemies.
Shounen Jump also went into detail about a new gameplay system in Tales of Xillia called the partner support system. If you link your battle leader to another character, you are able to benefit from the skills that are unique to that particular character. For instance, if your character dies, if the character you linked to has the revive skill, they will bring your character automatically back to life.
There had also been rumors that Mutsumi Inomata was designing all the girl characters. However, this is not the case as Kosuke Fujishima designed Elise.
