Monolith Soft recently revealed some interesting bits of news regarding its upcoming title Xenosaga II: Jenseits von Gut und Boese, which will be published by Namco.
In Xenosaga II, characters will be more realistic in appearance. Shion Uzuki will once again be the leading character. This time, she is older, no longer wearing glasses, and she lost her boyfriend two years prior to the events of Xenosaga II. Her brother Jin will play an important role in Episode II, and Shion's prominent android KOS-MOS will return as well. The story details of Xenosaga II are sketchy, but the team's objective will be to overthrow the Gnosis race and restore the rule of humans.
