    Travel 4,000 years into the future with Namco's landmark RPG saga on PS2.

    Thousands of years into a war-torn future, humanity has advanced to such a degree that
    its substantial resources of weapons and technology distort the boundaries of human
    limits. In this sequel, players must strive for control over the original Zohar to unravel its
    mystery and defeat the threat of the Gnosis, an ethereal alien race. Some believe the
    Zohar holds the key to unlocking infinite power, while others feel the Zohar will unravel the
    mysteries of the past and save the world from the Gnosis.

    Xenosaga Episode II enables deeper customization of your characters using over a
    hundred different skills. In addition, the game's battle system utilises combination attacks, a
    refined boost system, double team attacks and a zone attack/break system to create
    numerous enemy encounter situations and battles for the skilled player to master.

    • An extensive experience system features over 100 different skills to customize
      characters to the player's preference


    • The improved turn-based battle requires even more strategy and provides a deeper
      challenge


    • Shion, KOS-MOS and other favourite Episode I characters return with more mature,
      refined character designs and all new mechs
