Bandai Namco Europe has released some new trailers for Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, which introduce a few of the main characters and show off some gameplay. Although the audio is still in Japanese, the text is in English. The release of the game itself will feature dual audio, meaning it will have an option to set the voice over to either English or Japanese. Each trailer also came with a brief bio of the featured character, so be sure to check them out. They’re all free of spoilers, and the descriptions are copied from the video descriptions:
Height: 186cm (6’1″)
Weight: 78kg (172 lbs)
Class: Magic Swordsman
A mysterious swordsman who identifies himself as a mercenary. His skill with a sword is top-notch, and he joins the journey of world regeneration to act as a bodyguard for Colette. He has sharp, penetrating eyes, perhaps because of the countless battles he has had to face in his lifetime.
Height: 158cm (5’2″)
Weight: 44kg (97 lbs)
Class: Chosen One (Angel)
Lloyd’s childhood friend. Though she is dignified and graceful during her ceremonies as the Chosen, she is normally a clumsy, absent-minded and easygoing girl. But she has a strong inner will, and is definitely no sheltered little girl. Rather, in emergencies she acts boldly, and bravely works to help her friends.
Height: 173cm (5’8″)
Weight: 58kg (128 lbs)
Found abandoned in a forest while he was an infant, Lloyd has been raised by his adoptive father, a dwarf. He is respected by all for his agile mind and skill at making quick decisions, but his grades in school leave much to be desired. With a tendency to show off, he tries to be as cool as possible, but he’s actually a kind spirit who puts his heart into what he does.
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles is an HD collection which contains updated versions of Tales of Symphonia and its sequel Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. It was released in Japan for the PlayStation 3 last October and will release in North America and PAL regions this February.
