New scans of Tales of Xillia from VJump magazine point to only six available playable party members for the game. It seems that way for now, anyway.
Wonder if those six characters will have the depth and development deserving of eighteen. Twelve at least. That's one of the big issues with JRPG games: the characters are too stereotypical and shallow. Not that many WRPGs do better.
Abyss only had 6 party members and had one of the best Tales cast. Hopefully we'll see Xillia sometime late next year or 2013.
