MCV looks at the HD update of Namco Bandai's popular Tales of Symphonia titles.
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles comes to stores on February 28th.
Tales of Symphonia is one of the most popular titles in Namco Bandai’s Tales series which is one of the best-selling RPG franchises of all time.
This high-definition update collects the PlayStation 2 special edition of 2004’s Tales of Symphonia and its sequel Dawn of the New World.
In addition to an HD facelift, the game comes with new illustrations costumes and bosses. Chronicles also comes with both English and Japanese audio for the Japanophiles out there. The title’s audio has been newly arranged for the re-release.
The first game follows Lloyd Irving in his bid to save his world as its energy is drained. The second sees gamers play as Emil, dealing with the consequences of Lloyd’s tragic decisions in the first game.
The titles feature an accessible battle system, and players give instructions before the battle and their characters will fight without any input. In addition, taking damage fills up a Unison Gauge – once full, the entire party will unleash attacks on one enemy simultaneously.
Dawn of the New World adds the ability to capture and evolve over 200 monsters. Up to four computer-controlled creatures can fight alongside Emil.
