The lights are on
Tales of Symphonia, a compilation of Tales of Symphonia and Dawn of the New World, now has a release date. The PlayStation 3-bound HD collection will arrive in North America on February 25, 2014.
The original titles were released on the Gamecube and Wii. Tales of Symphonia is heralded as one of the strongest in the series. For more on the franchise, check out associate editor Kim Wallace's RPG Spotlight on the Tales series.
Thanks to reader "avLambo21" for the tip.
Our TakeI've not yet played a Tales title, but Kim has strongly suggested to me that this is a great place to start. You can also read her recent review of Tales of Xillia, another strong entry in the franchise.
