Namco has opened an official site for Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose. The site currently features a number of high-quality character portraits and screenshots. Xenosaga I character designer Kunihiko Tanaka will also work on Xenosaga II, but only as an illustrator. The music will be composed Yuki Kajiura (.hack, Blood: The Last Vampire), rather than Yasunori Mitsuda (Xenosaga Episode I, Chrono Trigger, Xenogears).
Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose, which is in development at Monolith Soft, is currently 35-percent complete. The game will be released by Namco for the PlayStation 2.
