"Before we announce something, a rumor is just a rumor."

Tales series producer Hideo Baba has clarified rumors of a “Tales of Symphonia Perfect Edition” for PlayStation 3.

Speaking to JPGames.de, Baba said, “To be quite frank… I was at Expomanga in Spain last week and everyone was enjoying the event, and then I heard from fans ‘I heard rumors about a Tales of Symphonia Perfect Edition. Is that true?’ Actually, I was the one surprised by that! (laughs) That fan then said that it’s the 10th anniversary of Tales of Symphonia in Japan this year, and I just said that there might be something coming, as a celebration.”

He continued, “But it will be more like a ‘Tales of Café’ or an event at NamcoCon… but we actually have no plans yet, there are only ideas. We can’t really say anything before announcements are made and it’s always a bit surprising when people ask us about rumors like that. It would be best to just wait for new information [about Tales of Symphonia’s 10th anniversary]. Before we announce something, a rumor is just a rumor after all (laughs).”

There you have it. The next Tales game, or round of Tales games (whatever the case may be), are expected to be announced at the Tales of Festival on June 1 and 2.
