San Jose, Ca., (August 10, 2004) – Leading video games developer and publisher Namco Hometek Inc. announced today the upcoming U.S. release of Xenosaga® EPISODE II: Jenseits von Gut und Böse , shipping exclusively for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system in February 2005. The sequel to the million-unit selling Xenosaga® EPISODE I: Der Wille zur Macht , the game is being developed by Monolith Software Inc. in Japan.  Featuring an elite cast of characters, breathtaking graphics and an unparalleled storyline, Xenosaga EPISODE II is a premier role playing game combining self-contained cinematics and charismatic game play with the adrenaline rush of claiming destiny in an unpredictable, futuristic world.
