Players will also be able to form parties and guilds with each other, and then take on other players.
Tales of Kizna
is due to be released in November, and a dedicated pre-registration website went live today for those Japanese players who want to show their interest.
The previous title in the series, Tales of Xillia
, shipped over half a million copies
when it launched in Japan last month.
