If you have an itch for some old-fashioned JRPG action on your big 60-inch HDTV, but don’t have anywhere to turn in these arid days of shabby releases, then mark Feb. 25, 2014 on your calendar. That is the day Namco Bandai is releasing Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, and never have I been happier to see a Tales game get released.
I’m not a huge fan of Namco Bandai’s longest running RPG series, but there is little doubt that Tales of Symphonia is its best and most beloved amongst its dedicated fans. It’s by far been the most widely recognized ever since its release on the GameCube in 2004.
Colorful characters, simplistic story, heavy action and a general aloofness to horrors which are threatening the world. It’s the kind of JRPG you can only find on the Nintendo 3DS anymore, so it’s refreshing to see such a release on the console scene.
It also comes packed with its Wii sequel Dawn of the New World, but you don’t have to play that if you don’t want to. The $39.99 asking price is worth it for the classic original alone.
Be sure to check out Tales of Symphonia Chronicles when it releases for the PlayStation 3 on Feb. 25.
