Rumor: Tales of Symphonia: Perfect Edition set for PS3

Symphonia and Dawn of the New World in high-def.

Tales of Symphonia

Tales of Symphonia: Perfect Edition—a high-definition remaster of Tales of Symphonia and its sequel Dawn of the New World—is in development for PlayStation 3, according “internal sources” of Spanish games site Koi-nya.

The outlet recently sat down with Tales series producer Hideo Baba at Expomanga in Madrid, where he was asked if he could confirm the rumor’s validity.

While Baba was not in a position to confirm the game’s existence, he did say something like that would be “a representation of the dreams and hopes of the fans who have long wanted it,” and that we might know something about it soon.

Also according to Koi-nya’s sources, both Tales of Symphonia: Perfect Edition and Tales of Xillia 2 are being planned for North American releases.

As all rumors go, take this one with a grain of salt. We’ll mail Namco Bandai for comment.

  • Archvile

    The “tales filled year” is starting to make sense now. (

    Hopefully true!:

  • EcoYunix

    MUST GET, hope its confirmed!!

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    This is great, i missed out on these back when they released

    • https://twitter.com/GaleGlory89 KiQun

      Same apply to me. Hope for some confirmation soon.

  • RmanX1000

    All of my yes please.

  • Elfyra

    Please, make this come true!!

  • Nitraion

    Best rumor of the year…
    hope its true

  • Zuhri69

    Please let it be true. I already have enough dissapointment to last me 3 decades. Grant me this one thing.

  • Eclipse

    Sweet, this is some excellent news~!

    I’m fairly new to this series, so I never really had the chance to play the older games. I really hope that this rumor is true.

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    It’d be such a waste of space to have Symphonia 2 on there….I really hope this isn’t true. Xillia 2 being localized would be nice though~

    • EcoYunix

      Symphonia 2 wouldn’t be a waste, it was actually pretty nice.

      • CirnoTheStrongest

        It’s my second most hated Tales game, only Tempest beating it.

      • AdamBoy64

        Yes. If they put a bit of work on it, I think they could improve it. I don’t think it’d take a lot of work either.

        Definitely not a waste of time or space.

        • MasterSensei

          The characters (Emil and Marta) were terrible! I just didn’t like their characters IMO because they whining way to much. I also didn’t like the fact that you could not keep or level up any of the original cast!! but the game play was good… really good in fact

          • AdamBoy64

            Ah, I’m the opposite. I thought Emil and Marta were fantastic.

            Emil in particular – I’d say he’s my favourite in the Tales series (or at worst, an incredibly close second). He seemed a lot more believable than a lot of heroes, which that focus isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

            He’s a bit of a departure from the usual hero – so I can understand the dislike.

            Yes, agree about the secondary characters – the game would have a lot more depth if they could level up like the main characters. I’m guessing they probably didn’t program that in due to a time/budget constraint, similar to how they scrapped the world map.

            I didn’t really like the monster system much at all to be honest. It had a fair bit of thought in it, but just yeah, for the most part they seemed way too overpowered.

            Storyline was pretty good actually. And yeah, I really enjoy the gameplay too.

        • CirnoTheStrongest

          There was never anything about them ‘improving it’, just an HD upscale. Sure, if they overhauled the story (not changing it completely, just setting it up to actually have more than two playable characters), made it so characters like Alice/Decus were playable, added in some new original characters and really only had the old Tales characters as cameos/part of the story, then I’d be all for it.

          But, as it is, it’s a mess. And this rumor doesn’t talk about them fixing any of that.

          • AdamBoy64

            Yeah true, true. I had Anime10121 explain that to me.

            If it ends up just an upscale then yeah, that’s not that exciting.

            I’d like to see some of the things you mentioned – some alterations or additions, or more playable characters – would be great. (Mind you, perhaps not more sidequests – the game already seems pretty quest heavy for it’s length)

            I wouldn’t think they would need to put a lot of effort into it to improve it. But yeah, here’s hoping they do something.

            I guess where we differ is I don’t see it in it’s current state as a mess, I think I liked it a lot more. (I seem to have resonated with the characters a lot more than most, I think)

            Yes, it’s the worst Tales game I’ve played. But for me, that still makes it better than the vast majority of games.

  • Lightning64

    Only in this thread you will see people getting excited about HD remaster otherwise they will all beg for Wii U version.

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    If this is turn out to be true than i would be a really happy person. even though I would like a Eternia remake more…

  • Zestevez

    That’s great, although I bought Dawn of the New World I refuse to play it because of being locked into the wii remote.

    • AdamBoy64

      The controls on that ended up pretty good. They only used the Wii Remote functionality for pointing the Sorcerer’s Ring.

  • PrinceHeir

    holy shit yes please!!!!!!!

    and please simultaneous worldwide release!!!!!

    i can’t wait for the new art, remix music, updated combat, faster loading times!!

    possibilities are endless!!!!!!!!!

    • PrinceHeir

      also i wonder if they’re gonna make the character models bigger like Xillia series?

      also Xillia 2 engine? :)

      get hype!!!!!

    • DesmaX

      It’s just an HD Remaster, not a Remake

      • Tetsu

        Those titles get thrown around alot, it might just be how the source worded it. So far Tales of games have good track records of being remade, Graces F and the two Vita games were all remakes, I’d hope that we’d see the same re-occurrence, especailly with such a monumental title.

        • DesmaX

          Graces F was also an HD Remaster, actually. Remake is making everything from scratch.

          But, hey, guess some additional content woudn’t hurt

      • LordKaiser

        It looks quite good on HD.

    • AdamBoy64

      Man. The possibilities really are endless – to what they could do to either title. What they could do with the battle and visual engines… the possibilities.

      I don’t think I’ve got so excited over an announcement in quite a few years.

      Fingers, toes, whatever – crossed!

  • Fantasytales

    I hope this happens symphonia is the first tales that I played n it’s by far my favorite, I also have dawn of the new world for the wii but I have never beat it due to the fact that I didn’t t like the way it played on the wii so fingers crossed.

  • fyi1191

    Kratos : JUDGMENTo!
    in HD!

  • bleach630

    Damn! guess i wont be selling my ps3 for ps4 anytime soon with all these awesome JRPGs coming out.

    • Anime10121

      Why would you anyway considering ps4 isn’t backwards compatible? I could understand if ps4 was like a first gen ps3 where all previous titles were playable, but that just seems like such a waste considering you’ll probably get no more than 150 (if youre lucky) by the time ps4 comes out.

      • bleach630

        Well i dont have the mony to buy the ps4 at full price so i have to sell my ps3 to get some cash in order to get the ps4.

        • LordKaiser

          Don’t buy a PS4 at launch then.

  • Hikaru Lighthalzen

    what about vita???

    • MasterSensei

      Vita doesn’t sell well Overseas so Namco would not even bother to localise it…

  • new_tradition

    Omg, please be true ;A;

  • Pyrofrost

    This would be great for Symphonia; but honesty, I couldn’t give too shits about seeing Dawn of the New World again. That game is an abomination.

    • Anime10121

      Eh it wasn’t THAT bad, it was different to the rest of the series with the monster taming thing though. It also wasn’t a”main” (mother) title, it was an escort title and it was treated as such. It was and still is IMO the best escort Tales of they’ve put out.

  • Duc PC-QB

    Why no Vita ?

  • DesmaX

    Haha, Day 1 for me if it’s true, never played these ones, but most people says that Symphonia 1 is one of the best. And, hey, I kinda want to play Symphonia 2 too

    • Pyrofrost

      Symphonia is to Tales, what FF7 is to FF basically.

      It was a gateway game for most Tales fans outside Japan, and therefore holds very high nostalgic value. Though even with nostalgia glasses off, it’s a legitimately good game.

  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

    I thought the Symphonia games are exclusives to Nintendo considering that they were published by Nintendo… Nevertheless, please be true…

    • Anime10121

      Depends on the wording of the contract, the title may have been exclusive to last gen. Almost gives me hope we’ll see Vesperia complete as a PS4 release. (Almost).

      • AdamBoy64

        Vesperia PS3 edition on PS4. Imagine that. Or Vita.
        That on Vita would be outrageously brilliant.

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          Oh lordy! I want to play the complete edition of Vesperia so much!!!

          • AdamBoy64

            I know I’m not helping by saying this, but –
            Oh man. Just imagine it. It would be unreal.

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              Just thinking about it makes me happy, sad, and angry all at the same time.

          • Anime10121

            Zero and AdamBoy64

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghDjwEPrBM0

            Oh how awesome it would be to see this with Ring a Bell! I played the demo on PS3 (completed the game on 360 when I had one) and it just feels so right to play Tales on a Dual Shock, almost like the series was made for that type of controller.

            • LordKaiser

              This is the only perfect version that is not out yet.

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              I only played the demo for the PS3 version too. I still have the 360 version. I got all the achievements for it, unlocked everything, played through the game multiple times, etc.

              It’s my favorite Tales of game. Also – <3 Judith! xD

              Edit : Man… re watching that opening brings back so many good memories…

    • adhesive

      Tales of Symphonia also saw a PS2 release, but it never hit local shores. Even then, there are probably a few ways to get around simple assisted publishing, as it didn’t stop Tecmo Koei at all in regards to Ninja Gaiden II.

    • Elvick

      Well, for Japan there wasn’t one at all. As I understand, Nintendo helped with localization and advertising of Symphonia. So that’s why we never got the PS2 version. Granted, if there wasn’t exclusivity that doesn’t mean we would have gotten the PS2 version.

      Who knows if this is even being considered for localization. If it is, then maybe they’d redo the localization, or the contract for exclusivity is up? Who knows.

      I suppose we’ll find out how this will play out, if this is even a true rumor to begin with.

  • Anime10121

    Good news, but when did this even become rumor enough for them to ask Baba? Would be awesome as all heck if true though! Guess we’ll find out at Tales Festival this year! And given the fact that no new Tales has been teased as of yet (we usually have at least a teasr this close to the festival) for a new game, this rumor is sounding much more plausible :)

    Oh and one more thing that makes this rumor seem legit. Square Enix releases HD remaster, Namco releases HD Remaster:)

    • Pyrofrost

      This along side a new mothership title would make my year mate. Especially with all the other good things this year ^_^

  • PrinceHeir

    also hopefully this will be based on the PS2 version instead, since it has tons of new content and all :D

  • Lightning64

    Only in this thread you will see people getting excited for it. In other place people will beg for WiiU version and people will agree with them and it doesnt count as port begging because the mods are Nintendo fanboy. But if you beg for Vita you will be executed immediately.

    • LordKaiser

      Only on Nintendo forums.

    • AdamBoy64

      Those begging for a Wii U version have a good option though.

      Sell their Wii U (hardly anything on it anyway), buy a PS3, with some cash left over for the game. They’ll enjoy having a system with some actual games available on it.

      As they’re Tales fans, they can then pick up Graces F down the track too.
      It’s win-win!

      • Lightning64

        I don’t really agree. They should kept their WiiU well at least after E3 because I’d imagine there will be great games announcement coming out from it. I know they don’t have E3 conference but surely they will announce something. Also, I’m hoping for WiiU to get this as well because why not? I’m just saying in this thread you will see people genuinely excited for this rumor, as in other places there are comments like “Why not WiiU, Tales sold the most on Nintendo console. Makes zero sense to release on PS3″, “TOS and TOS2 are NINTENDO EXCLUSIVE, WTF TROLL Namco Bandai”,

        • AdamBoy64

          Yeah, fair enough. Even though it’s packed away for me at the moment, I’ve still got high hopes for the Wii U.

          I don’t think we’ll see any Tales titles for it soon though. But it wouldn’t be a bad thing to see this on Wii U.

          But I’m just thinking.. surely any Tales fans that’s been following the news over the past few years would see that titles have been coming to PS3. For them to save up and buy a ‘Wii U’ instead of a PS3, and then complain like that – it’s a bit mind boggling.

  • http://twitter.com/Nates4Christ Nate

    I liked tales of Graces but syphonia is horrible. I could not get more than 10 minutes in. The whole premise with the girl was a mockery of Jesus and being the coming Messiah. So I think I’ll pass on this one.

    • Jena Allen

      Dude…the whole point of the game was that the beginning was ‘typical’ or not creative only for it all to get turned on its head. Symphonia had bad graphics compared to the others but it was and still is the best Tales game from the characters and story.

    • lorenz wilson

      i know wat u meanbut the storyline isnt that bad if u get through it

  • Warboss Aohd

    if it’s da one wit da extra content (an’ dey keep da voice actors), i’m in. If not, already got both o’ dem.

  • https://twitter.com/ExeForce87 ͜ʖ ͡°

    HD PORT/REMASTER? do not want

    i want REMAKES, because Symphonia graphic need an update if this go for PS3.. while Ratatosk graphic is fine though

  • AdamBoy64

    Wow. What on earth is happening.
    Please let this be true. Oh man.

  • Elvick

    I’d buy the crap out of this. Wish the rumor was for a Vita version too. Portable Symphonia? *dies* edit; though thinking about that makes me sad, since NB would totally never localize that version, even if they localized the PS3 version. -.-

  • AdamBoy64

    The only thing that’s stopped me from playing the original Symphonia in recent years is the visuals. Seriously. After playing Vesperia (or even Abyss), Symphonia’s visuals are pretty woeful. Makes it hard to play.

    But Symphonia with updated visuals… wow.
    Really hope this is true.

    • Anime10121

      It’s a remaster not a remake. HD visuals does not mean improved graphics/new character models, only a higher resolution.

      • AdamBoy64

        Yes. I’ll keep my hopes up they’ll change or add something. Seems like the perfect opportunity.

        • Anime10121

          Hate to burst your bubble, but when has any HD remaster besides a Square Enix one, added anything to improve actual graphics and/or gameplay. Not trying to be mean about it, just don’t want you to get your hopes up. Tales is not a big enough series that they’d put the effort into adding anything significant, I wish it were, but it ain’t.

          • AdamBoy64

            Hmm yes. Looking back on the HD Remasters I saw of KH, I didn’t think they were that great an improvement over the original.

            However, if they add something into the games like they did with Vesperia PS3, or Graces F, I think I’d be happy with that. (Even just fixing the multiplayer camera issues in Symphonia would be fantastic).

            Any additional content or gameplay tweaks/enhancements would be a bonus. Fingers crossed!

            • Jonatas da Silva

              But the KH 1.5 they did change the character models for the DDD ones for exemple,so that’s cool,and companys aside from Square Enix don’t put to much effort in their HD remakes….the Devil may cry one still makes me cringe for the lack of new content.

              You could argue that Sony does….but it’s just a lot of games collections in HD,wich is great but nothing “new” is added aside from the basic.

              I hope this is true,I never played the GC version,only the PS2 one,and it sucked for me,because my japanese at the time sucked a lot.And my first Tales of was Abyss,and graphics wise is really hard to let it pass how “bad” it is compared to Abyss and any other tales of game that came after.Hell Legendia was pretty good but I barelly managed to finish….couldn’t stand to look at those graphics.Have almost the same problem with DoNW and Graces F,but graces F character models looked decent at the very least,so that’s a plus.

          • MasterSensei

            Legend of Zelda: OoT for the 3DS was a pretty good HD remake/remaster

            • Anime10121

              True but even still that’s a Nintendo property which is guaranteed to sale much more than Tales. In fact, that “port” actually sold more than brand new mothership titles in the Tales of series.

              If Tales of was a series with higher sales potential, I would believe Namco would put forth the effort, however much I love the series, it still doesn’t sell that well in the grand scheme of things, with most titles in the series failing to ever reach 1 million WW.

              Hopefully Namco proves the pessimist in me wrong though (being the case that this rumor actually turns out to be true), I’d love to be able to stick a sock in my mouth and be proven wrong, but we’ll see.

              • Elvick

                Any series potential that Tales has is squashed by Namco Bandai’s horrible handling of the series outside of Japan.

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            For the record – We never actually got the complete edition of Symphonia in the west. If this rumor is true, it seems incredibly silly to not include that content in the HD remaster.

            (I’m sure you are aware of the PS2 version.)

            – Tales of Symphonia (PS2) –

            Namco decided to re-release the game on the PlayStation 2. This newer version included two extra anime sequences, a different opening song and some added side-quests amongst other things.

            Some of the changes – (I did my best to remove spoilerish material/stuff I was unsure of.) Source (Source has spoilers.)

            —–

            The game’s theme song has been changed from Starry Heavens to Soshite Boku ni Dekiru Koto. It sounds quite similar to the original and was performed by the same band, Day After Tomorrow.

            New anime sequences play inside of the Triet Ruins, and in the Sylvarant Base.

            The end credits now feature a montage of portraits off to the left side.

            Each playable character, as well as some enemies, has a Mystic Arte (“Hi Ougi”). This must be done under special conditions and inflicts massive damage to the enemy. In the GameCube version, only Lloyd, Colette, and Genis have one.

            Each character receives an extra costume.

            The Synopsis option in the menu now displays newer entries at the top.

            The skit portraits shake and move around more to better display the characters’ emotions.

            When a character is about to enter Over Limit, their portrait will start to glow. In the GameCube version, the characters flash red.

            When the Unison Attack gauge fills up, it glows.

            There are more post-battle animations.

            There are now a set of several books about Mithos the Hero. They can be read for deeper insight into the character and the Kharlan War itself.

            There are two new events that will let you get more insight into the ancient hero, Mithos. etc…

            • Anime10121

              True dat! They could bring the ps2 version over for this remaster, but lets just hope that they fix the problems the ps2 version brought with it like a cut in half frame rate and lengthier loading times (which were extremely noticeable as I played the import). They do that and this would be a fantastic choice !

              • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                Absolutely. You would think that technical problems wouldn’t be an issue with HD remasters. That isn’t always the case though. =/

            • lorenz wilson

              i hate that the games have different levels and hidden stuff on different console in TOS the playstation 2’s japanese version gets to fight mithos yuan in kratos when u enter that cursed book in the library of sybak but in gamecube version u cant like wat the hell i got to go same game on a different console to do things that should have been on all the console versions i think that bogus to tales players who dont know about the different things they have

              • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                I’m with you on that. I’d love to have the opportunity to play that content from the PS2 version of Symphonia. I also finished the gamecube version.

                Don’t even get me started on PS3 Vesperia. =/

    • lorenz wilson

      the visual arent that bad but i know wat you mean it kinda sucks to look at some crappy looking characters i only played gamecube version so it might be better on ps2 than the gamecube

  • 罪罰

    Symphonia on PS3? It’s the only Tales I like, so sure.

  • DarthBrian

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!???!!! O_O

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    OMG! I want to freak out but this all sounds too good to be true. Please be true!

    • Anime10121

      Well we’ll know in a couple weeks, as the Tales of Festival usually takes place around the start of E3 (have no idea exactly when it Is this year though) and details usually leak from magazines the week before :)
      So lets hope 4 the best :D

  • Frankiedf

    That’s nice, but I’d rather they bring us something else, like vesperia ps3 in the west, or the vita tales of games.

    • Anime10121

      Vesperia I can agree with (liked it more than symphonia) but after playing the original Innocence, they can keep that (unless the Vita version revamps most of the game), as it wasn’t that good. However I would like to try Hearts though, as I hear that’s one of the best. Or of they REALLY wanna be nice, they could throw in Rebirth (though that’ll likely Never happen).

      • Frankiedf

        The Vita version is a complete remake. It’s much better than the original.

        • Anime10121

          Oh well if it streamlined the plot and made it more focused, I stand corrected, and would like to try the “new” Innocence. But that game needed a LOT of work to make it anything more than decent, so I’d have to see.

    • Elvick

      I’d rather it all to be honest…

      Though, if I had to pick, I’d go with the Vita games. We never got any of those games. Even on DS. While we’ve had Symphonia, DotNW, and Vesperia in some capacity. (helps that I have them all)

  • http://www.facebook.com/JeremieJerryIsmael Jerry Jcwgpii

    Yes, please bring all Tales of Series on PS3 inkluded Tales of Inoncance R(PS Vita)

  • Sevyne

    I’d totally buy it again. Symphonia was a fantastic game.

  • Zackasaur

    I definitely want this in the west.

  • MasterSensei

    One word.
    YES.

  • HanPaul

    OH! WOW! GEEZ!

    dammit, i was planing to buy Symphonia for gamecube… then again i’m pretty sure IF the game comes out it’l take 2 – 3 years til we get here in EU/NA

    Its totally fake. They also announced Hatsune Miku Project Diva F in the west for this month and obviously was a fake to catch visits.

  • Raiyu

    I’m looking forward to both. Haven’t played either of the Tales of Symphonia games :)

    Still hoping we get Innocence R and Hearts R in the west as well.

      Not happening,N.Bandai won’t do it =/(already confirmed I’m afraid)

    Oh MY … GAWD my heart nearly stopped as I read the title. … …
    I- I don’t know what to say…

    If this’ll be revealed to be the actual truth … *taking a deep breath*
    Fujibayashi… in PS3 graphics …and Xillia2 …

  • Jena Allen

    As long as they keep the original voice cast. I hated the actors they got for the spinoff. HATED.

    • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

      Oh god, who got replaced from the original voice cast? Lloyd holds a dear spot in my heart since his original voice played Robin in Teen Titans ;-; Ugh honestly, they can keep Dawn of the New World, I just want HD Symphonia oh and Vesperia PS3.

    • Sae-Won Yoon

      This. The original Cast for ToS was spot-on.

      JYB and Laura Bailey were okay in ToS2 but the cast for those somewhat ruined it.

    • AdamBoy64

      If it was a remake, it’d be great if the original cast went and revoiced Symphonia 2.

      I could probably handle the other way around also – that is, the cast from Symphonia 2 voicing the Symphonia remake. (preferably bring back the old Sheena – that’s the main one I miss)

      I think, either way, it’d be great to have both games using the same voice actors.

    Anything but Vesperia. Why ? Everyone said that they want them in the west and will buy them in 1st day but the sales usual not meet Namdai’s expectations even in their home country (ToX2 and ToGf sold half a million copies in Japan and ToX2 maybe never had a release date in US). We’re living in FPS era now.

  • Jena Allen

    You know what, I would actually be okay with this not being what they havein the works…IF hat they were making was a ToS Prequel with the Kharlan Heroes. I would die with sheer joy.

    • lorenz wilson

      me too ive always wat to see wat it would be like using mithos in battle Id die with u and martel oh my GOD! me her would be kool i always use girl characters first there always strong if u know how to use them like collete if u dont know how to use her ur gonna die on the stop cause thats all she does she dies thats why u would need to practice with her and i think it would be much harder in the prequel cause mithos fights the summon spirit gnome by himself so imagine if he had to fight the wind summom spirit girls they would kill me bad cause all they do is hitt u with arrows and air thrust

  • MrRobbyM

    ToS is one of my favorite games ever. I would buy this up so fast if they keep the original voice cast.

  • http://www.rpgnews.it/ Chocozell

    I want Tales of the Abyss e Tales of Vesperia per PS3 O.O

    • Willgaea

      I loved the Field of fonons. That is still one of the best game mechanics brought into the series. Although if they had FOF in the graces system i’d feel complete.

  • artemisthemp

    dreams and hope sound like, he finally will announce PS3 version of Vesperia to the West

    • Miley Mattson

      Baba said “no.” The official Tales series page said “no.” How many times do they have to say it’s not coming before it sinks in?

      • yellowmage

        Until they change their minds and say “yes”! Dammit, we’re not giving up on this and we’ll twist their arms until they relent! And if we just so happen to twist it all the way off… well, they’ve got another one.

    • lorenz wilson

      aye wat do u mean to the west i already own versperia is it not realesed where u r or something

      • artemisthemp

        Where did you get your English PS3 copy?

        • Willgaea

          Maybe he missed the part where you said Ps3.

  • KingNigma

    I know it’s a rumour, but I teared up a bit. I really did.

  • http://twitter.com/GNPixie Lynx

    Never really could get behind the Symphonia games.

    Now, if Phantasia could get in on the other hand….

    (If anyone that doesn’t know yet, Phantasia and Symphiona take place in the same continuity, just at very different times.)

  • Bobby Jennings

    I need Dawn of the new WORLD! I really enjoyed that game, and I never got to finish it. It’d be nice if they give us the PS2 Symphonia as well. Will be importing this day-one if it’s true.

  • http://www.facebook.com/micheal.scott.315 Micheal Scott

    Wow hope is for real
    just have to wait and see

  • Learii

    I hope is true that is coming to the west

  • http://lukalovesgames.blogspot.de/ Alkaid

    I could edit but hell the world, remember when Hideo Baba told us that he would look into “japanese voice option” in the future?
    AHAHAHAA!! Oh playing it again with the english cast and then swapping to JP dub … to play it again right after finishing it would be marvelous!!!

  • Mithos

    A remaster would mean it’s the same skins and 3d modelling as the original game but rendered in HD. Now a remake would mean, Symphonia with Xillia-like models. Wouldn’t that be AWESOME?! But highly unlikely =.=

  • LordKaiser

    I doubt this is true but if it ends being true then it’s beyond awesome but it would be better if it was a remake.

    Anyway I hope that Tales Of Destiny DC, Tales of destiny 2 (not Eternia) and Tales of Rebirth also get a remastered HD collection.

  • Willgaea

    They need to release the Radiant series for the rest of us. All I have is TORM 1 :[

    • lorenz wilson
