According to sources found by the Spanish site Koi-nya, a high-definition remaster of Tales of Symphonia called Tales of Symphonia: Perfect Edition is rumored to be releasing on the PlayStation 3. The enhanced re-release is said to contain both the original Tales of Symphonia, originally for the Nintendo Gamecube (which was later ported on the PlayStation 2), and its Nintendo Wii spin-off/sequel, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.

At Expomanga 2013 in Madrid, Tales producer Hideo Baba sat down with an outlet to explain the rumor’s validity. He stated that he was not in the position to confirm the game’s existence. He did, however, acknowledge the extensive desire by fans who wish to see this happen. Baba said it is “a representation of the dreams and hopes of the fans who have long wanted it”. He finally said that he might learn more about a Tales of Symphonia remaster later.

The found sources have also indicated that Tales of Symphonia: Perfect Edition is supposed to release in the United States, along with Tales of Xillia 2, which is also rumored to have secured a Western release. As exciting as this rumor may sound, this need to be taken with caution until further notice.

So is this something you guys would like to see? Personally, I would like to see newer Tales games be produced, but a Tales of Symphonia remaster isn’t out of the question. It’s still one of my favorite games, and a re-release should make a lot of old and new fans happy. Oh, and I liked Dawn of the New World.
