Given how long the Tales of series has been running for, you could have potentially been introduced to the series through quite a number of games – in my case it was Tales of Vesperia which by that time mean’t Gamecube games were near impossible to come across in stores.
If you have been hunting down for the original Tales of Symphonia game on the Gamecube then fret not, as in early-2014 Namco Bandai will be releasing Tales of Symphonia Chronicles for the Playstation 3 which compiles the original Tales of Symphonia game as well as its sequel Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. While the major feature of the game is it being a HD port of the original games, it is also set to come with dual audio (Japanese and English), new apparel and appearance unlockables and more.
With the latest character focus trailers being on Dawn of the New World, Namco Bandai have released a brand new set of screenshots based on the original Symphonia game viewable below. It highlights not only some of the gameplay features but also a few familiar outfits from other Tales games.
