The lights are on
OK, this really isn't a surprise. Earlier this week at the Tales of Festival, series producer Hideo Baba expressed his sincere interest in bringing the collection of Tales of Symphonia and Dawn of the New World to the West.
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles (which is a working title) will be arriving on our shores in early 2014. The compilation upgrades the original Gamecube and Wii titles with HD graphics exclusively on PlayStation 3. The gameplay is intact with the series' familiar and lauded real-time combat system.
For those who haven't had the opportunity to play these two titles, this compilation provides a perfect excuse to enjoy two of the best in the Tales series.

YEAAAHHH can't wait to play this, along with Xilla!!
I just finished Tales of Graces f, so I'm good until Xillia launches. Once I'm finished with that, I'm gonna play the absolute crap out of Symphonia.
Found this out during the weekend, but it's nice to see the confirmation also coming from Stateside. Can't wait to see if all of the characters will have costumes from Abyss, although Genis having Luke's ruins it for me a tad bit, but I can understand why as well. Although I don't see the surprise people have toward it being on the PS3. The majority of the Tales Fanbase in Japan have a PS3, which is why recently they develop for that console. Also Symphonia was on the PS2 (in Japan) as well as the gamecube.
Yes! SO excited!
Once again their is a victory for the Tales series. ^_^
Hope this plays out well.
I've been getting into the Tales series a lot lately. I just bought Tales of Graces f, and I haven't put it down. And I've already pre-ordered the Tales of Xillia Collector's Edition. This is great news!
Finally we can play the best entry in the series in glorious HD. Been waiting too long for this.
of course we have to wait for a almost full year to get this game. i dont get japanese marketing, and they wonder why their games dont sell this side any more. this is poor marketing, release the game the same time please and we already have this games in english. how hard is it to make it in hd?
great news for me. been wanting to play this again and i was silly enough to sell my original copy before i realised how rare it was ;_;
Woah, wait Namco Bandai is based in San Jose? Why I have I not heard of this awesomeness in my own town?!
And I just can't wait for this. As if I won't be getting enough of my JRPG fix later this year already with FFX/X-2HD, KH1.5HDReMIX, and Tales of Xilia, now I get to replay my 2nd favorite game ever, on my favorite console, and with updated graphics :D
I WANT THIS SO BAD!!!!!!! RELEASE IT NOW!!!
Yes!!! Can't wait for next year!
Giggity, Giggity, GIGGITY! Finally something worth buying. :)
Cool! I've heard alot about these games.
Still play TOS on my GC/Wii/Wii U!!!
