Tales of Symphonia Unisonant Pack Logo 2

Namco Bandai recently held the Tales of Festival in Japan, and like last year with the announcement of Tales of Xillia 2, they decided to drop another bomb shell at the event with the announcement of Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack. The previously rumored HD versions of  Symphonia and its sequel that was  originally on the Nintendo Wii which Hideo Baba himself addressed as only a possibility — which wasn’t a lie, but wasn’t the full truth. Gotta keep some surprises.

This compilation, or rather HD Collection, is releasing in celebration of  of the Symphonia sub-series’ 10th anniversary, and of course will come with high-definition remasters of Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack will launch in Japan on October 10th of this year for 6,980 yen (69.34 USD).

And when it looked like we would have to wait for a Western localization announcement, Namco Bandai then posted a video on youtube with Hideo Baba claiming he truly wants the Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack, or Tales of Symphonia Chronicles (working title that is being used for the West) , to be localized. In fact, he suspects early 2014 would be our best bet for a release. Check out the video below.

    Wii U can’t even get the HD rereleases of GameCube and Wii games, apparently.

    • Lazy_Penguin1989

      Well to be fair, there was a PlayStation 2 version of Tales of Symphonia. Technical issues aside, it had its differences and bonus content as well, similar to the PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia and Tales of Graces with the added ‘f’.

    • Wasn’t the PS2 Tales of Symphonia Japan only? If I’m not mistaken that is.

    • Lazy_Penguin1989

      Yep. But the main reason most people can agree on when it comes to why it’s going to the PS3 is that the PS3 is still doing well, especially in Japan. Another reason could be is that the PS3 versions of Tales of Vesperia and Graces doubled the sales of their original versions. There probably trying to do the same with this, it’s just business.

      The Wii U would seem to be more fitting. But, I’ll happily play this on my PS3 or PS4 whatever the case may be.

    • RagunaXL

      yeah! now I know how playstation 2 fans must feel about us getting tales of the abyss and the shin megami games on 3DS… hey, i’d rather Symphonia on 3DS at this point.

    • Heriel

      b-but SMT was always on nintendo consoles…

  • Lord Ackercocke

    Instantly on my ‘must buy’ list for 2014

  • PaleCompanion

    Very exited for this! Symphonia has always been one of my favorite games.

  • James Best

    Darn! It’s not on the Wii U.

  • Mario G.B.

    fuck! i want Wii U version

  • Alex

    Nearly blown out of my chair! So happy!

  • Why is it that Namco only gives the enhanced versions to Sony? Do they pay them or something?

    • Xanedis

      I heard somewhere that they prefer PS3 as their choice of a platform. It is quite possible that the next big tales game(the one after Tales of Xillia 2) comes to PS3 too.

  • PS3 will sadly be obsolete when it comes to the west as the hype train and eyes will be on PS4.

    I say they just bring it to Wii U! I mean Tales of Symphonia (and Dawn of the New World for that matter) was originally released on a Nintendo console, kind of would be nice if returned to one.

    • An Tran

      Sadly it seems that Bamco no longer has any intent to release a Tales game on a Nintendo console.

  • Heriel

    just a fucking port? srsly scamco…

    • Bec66

      A port of a improved PS2 game we never got, as opposed to the gamecube version. Also how is this a rip-off in any way?

  • An Tran

    Sigh…by now, Sony should just buy the Tales series IP from Bamco. Seeing how much Bammy and their Tales division just LOVE Sony, they might as well do it. I can understand not putting the series on an Xbox anymore after Vesperia (wait, didn’t that do alright?), but them ignoring their long established fan base on the Nintendo front just shows how little they care about anyone but Sony. I worry about the Smash Bros. 4 story mode now…

  • Ben Baker

    Surely there will be a Wii U release. I mean, really, the games originally released on Gamecube and Wii!
