Last month, the Tales of Symphonia Chronicles HD remaster was released on the PS3 in Japan, and it’s getting a Western release this coming February. And while we’ve all seen HD remasters before, there’s plenty to be excited about in Tales of Symphonia Chronicles.
In celebration of its 10th anniversary, Tales of Symphonia is getting re-released on the PlayStation 3. Titled Tales of Symphonia Unisonant Pack, the game will include both Tales of Symphonia and its sequel, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.
Tales producer Hideo Baba made the announcement today to a cheering crowd of 12,000 fans at the annual Tales of Festival event (More on the event itself next week). The game is scheduled for release in Japan in October.
Baba did mention that Unisonant Pack would feature new in-battle cuts and new cross-game costumes – including character costumes from other Tales games released after the original Symphonia. Baba stated that further information would be announced as the release date approaches.
Currently, there’s no news on a Western release, but considering the popularity of the Tales series outside of Japan, one can’t be far behind.
[Update] A 2014 Western release has been confirmed. (Thank you, CAINXAVIER!)
Japanese fans will also be getting a couple of limited editions. One is set to include, among other things, a novella that covers the events that occur in between the original Symphonia and Dawn of the New World.
Tales of Symphonia Unisonant Pack will be out in Japan on October 10th. No info as to whether the new game will be a port or a remake.
