Tales of Symphonia Unisonant Pack Trailer – “Chronicles” is Fine, Namco

Get a first look at Tales of Symphonia and its Wii sequel, Dawn of the New World, in HD with the new trailer from Namco. Be sure your ears can handle a heavy dose of screeching J-Pop, though.

Everything looks gorgeous from the anime cutscenes to the flashy combat. I’ve never been huge on Tales‘ brand of combo-heavy massive-damage battle system, but Tales of Symphonia is far and away the closest Namco ever got to getting it right.

The only complaint I have about this PlayStation 3 exclusive pack is the title. Unisonant Pack. It makes sense considering both games are being released “in unison” on the same disc, but I can just picture a Japanese person running through an English thesaurus and picking it from a long list of synonyms.

Tales of Symphonia Chronicles is just fine for an American release, Namco. Let’s stick with that please. It is being released in Japan on October 10th, and Namco Bandai has confirmed a release for 2014 stateside.
