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.
