An update to the Tales of Symphonia ESRB page now includes the Windows PC as one of the platforms that the game is available on. This follows a now-altered listing on the Steam database of a possible PC release of the newest entry in the series, Tales of Zestria.
Tales of Symphonia is one of the most popular titles in the Tales series of games. It is largely responsible for the series’ growth and is arguably the most successful title in the West so far. According to producer Hideo Baba, its popularity in the West has influenced the development of subsequent Tales games in order to retain its appeal in our part of the world.
It remains to be seen that, if it were to be released onto Steam, whether this will be simply the original entry, if the game and its sequel Dawn of the New World will be separate releases, or if it’ll come in the form of Tales of Symphonia Chronicles.
It has to be said, though, that the ESRB page also lists an Xbox release, which never happened. So there is no definitive proof that this will come to pass. Be that as it may, we have been seeing more console-only games getting their chance to shine on Steam, so there is at least more of a chance than there was before.
Stay tuned to our site for any further developments on this listing.
