Tales of Symphonia Returns in HD on the PS3, Coming To the West in 2014

on June 1, 2013 1:25 PM

Fans of the Tales series have something to rejoice about as during the “Tales of Festival” event Namco Bandai just announced that both Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World will receive the HD remake treatment and will be released on the PS3 as part of a package named Tales of Symphonia Chronicles (working title).

The package will be released in Japan on October the 10th under the title Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack, while European and North American fans will have to wait for early 2014 (unfortunately we know that Namco Bandai isn’t exactly the fastest company out there for localizations).

Tales of Symphonia Chronicles will include new costumes for all characters, and additional content created for the occasion. Character Designer (and popular mangaka) Kosuke Fujishima will also draw a new cover art.

Below you can see a video message from the series’ Producer Hideo Baba relaying the announcement:

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
