Hot on the trail of the Xillia 2 news, the Tales of series is back with a new mandate: wake up those sleepy gamers! New alarm clocks from Bandai Namco Games' LaLaBit Market are now available for preorder. Five characters are on tap and, of course, it's the original [Japanese] voice actors in every case. We preview one of three set phrases per character below:
Hikaru Midorikawa as Leon Magnus (Tales of Destiny):
"I hate people who shamelessly, moreover insolently sleep like…in a word, who oversleep! Wake up!"
Kōsuke Toriumi as Yuri Lowell (Tales of Vesperia):
"How long are you gonna sleep for? Repede is gonna eat your breakfast! C'mon, hurry up and get up!"
Takahiro Sakurai as Asbel Lhant (Tales of Graces F):
"You're not up yet? You have plans today, don't you? Everybody's waiting for you! C'mon, please get up!"
Miyuki Sawashiro as Milla Maxwell (Tales of Xillia):
"It's morning! Won't you wake up soon? The growling of my stomach woke me up a long time ago! Haha, human existence is so interesting!"
Tsubasa Yonaga as Jude Mathis (Tales of Xillia):
"Whoa, it's morning! Oh, me? It seems I've been reading a book this whole time. But I'm glad I was able to wake you up. Good morning!"
The clocks run 5,250 yen (about US $67.26) and will ship at the end of July.
