Namco Bandai is holding a contest for Tales of fans to make a skit of their favorite characters and win some nice Tales of Xillia goodies and an autograph from series producer Hideo Baba.
So what does making a skit entail? Participants must draw their own artwork and write the corresponding text to go with each panel, to create a skit like those seen on the Tales of series. Participants can not use official art in the contest, nor can they use characters from Tales of Xillia in their submission. Characters from earlier Japan-only games seem to be permitted, however.
Each skit must have 5 panels or less, and each skit can have no more than 5 characters. Text per panel is capped at 400 characters. You can check out the rest of the rules on the contest’s Facebook page under the “Rules” link.
So what do you get for working your butt off in the contest? Five winners will be chosen at the end of the contest on June 28 and announced on July 1. Each lucky winner will receive:
- A copy of the standard edition of Tales of Xillia
- A Tales of Xillia cotton bag
- Tales of Xillia stickers
- Tales of Xillia magnets
- A Teepo steelcase
- An autograph from Hideo Baba
Fans in both North America and Europe can participate in this contest! Head over to the official Facebook page to get started by Liking the page and checking out the full rule list.
