Tales of Symphonia Remastered Announced
Bandai Namco announced a new remaster for Tales of Symphonia. The remaster is planned to release in early 2023 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It will be available physically and digitally, including a Chosen Edition available to pre-order through Bandai Namco’s online store in North America and Europe. The Chosen Edition contains a special metal case in both regions, while European orders also receive a selection of art prints and stickers.
Tales of Symphonia was originally released for Nintendo GameCube and was the first game in the series to utilise 3D character models. It was also released on PlayStation 2 in Japan, before being released worldwide on PlayStation 3 in the Tales of Symphonia Chronicles bundle alongside its sequel Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, and was later also released on PC.
Tales of Symphonia follows Lloyd Irving, who accompanies his childhood friend Colette Brunel as she embarks on a journey of world regeneration to save their world of Sylvarant. The game features action, combo-focused combat with a mixture of 2D and 3D roaming elements, with the remaster to include the original game’s four-player local co-op.
