About Tales of Xillia

The 13th entry in the lauded Tales series, Tales of Xillia takes place in the realm of Liese Maxia, where humans, spirits and demos live together in harmony. The game's combat utilizes a system known as DR-LMBS, and also sees the return of the Overlimit mechanic seen in Tales of the Abyss and Vesperia.
