Tales of Symphonia Chronicles slated for early 2014 on PS3

Collection to feature HD remastered versions of Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.

Namco Bandai has announced a release window for Tales of Symphonia Chronicles for North America: the compilation will be out sometime in early 2014.

JRPG fans will soon be able to enjoy HD remastered versions of both Tales of Symphonia games.

Announced at this year's Tales of Festival event in Japan, the PS3 collection will feature HD remastered versions of the first Tales of Symphonia and its sequel, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. New content includes newly-illustrated cut-ins during Mystic Artes moves and new outfits for the game's party members.

Gamers in Japan will be able to buy different editions in the region. The Lalabit Market edition will include five "Chibi Kyun Chara" figures of the game's main characters, a novel detailing the game's past events, and a case box illustrated by animation studio Ufotable. The Famitsu DX pack will have four artwork posters. The former pack costs 9,980 yen ($100), while the latter costs 7,980 yen ($80).

Tales of Symphonia was released in 2004 for the GameCube, while its sequel was out in 2008. Both games were praised for its fast-paced battle system.

I love this game and all,but I'm a little disappointed that they are only making it for PS3. That's very unfair to those who don't have one, or have an Xbox 360 instead. On top of that, the video doesn't work. it plays an ad and then freezes on the last second, and does nothing after that

Don't care about Dawn of the New World, but I'm definitely excited about ToS. It was my first Tales games and was my favorite until Tales of Vesperia came along.

I never played the 2nd one but Tales of Symphonia is one of my all time favorite RPG and my favorite Tales game. I loved the story and the characters. Lloyd was always good for a laugh.

Yes!! Finally i can Play Symphonia again, this time in HD and with trophies!!


I had long abandoned hope of ever seeing this game on playstation in NA, but i'm glad its coming. I have to say, i thought the sequel was very weak though. Its good that its included with Symphonia and not sold seperately.
