One downside to the US release, apparently none of the in-game skits (triggered when you hit the Z button) have audio in the English version. All of those skits (of which there are 300+) had voice acting in the Japanese version.
Is it completely disabled or can you choose between english and chinese audio? Original is always the best, and I'm pretty disappointed to the regular, english voice-acting. Would be shame to miss it...

I believe the battle system of TOS is similar to Star Ocean 3 right?

since TOS is the only one that has a 3D battle out of all tales so far

The game looks good to. Especially the battle video i seen. I want this bad.

Um, it IS coming to Ps2, its been confirmed long while ago, even comes with a limited edition DVD feature DAMN THEM!!* Or so I've heard and seen it for pre-order, but we all know how those things go I'll try to dig up some info, as rpgfan don't have it anymore.

As for what Navi said, this the only 'good' rpg on gamecube? Go pick up Skies of Arcadia Legends

I ment the ps2 in USA I saw it somewhere and can't locate it any more. Maybe it was claimed to come to the USA, but then just decided not to go along with it. All the better, GC needs its own exclusive RPGs ^_^

o, US ver.? @_@
I have never heard anything about TOS will be releasing an US ver. on PS2
and even if it was going to, there would be a very very very very little chance the dvd is featured lol. besides I give no expectation to US ver. ^^bbb

Tales of Symphonia is a prequel to Tales of Destiny (PSX), the second instailment of the series, not to Tales of Phantasia.

About the similarities, I haven't played ToS but Namco has this tendence to include similar techniques for the main character, similar basic items etc. BTW I don't believe Midgard would be an equivalent to Asgard. Midgard is usually your supper uber technology city

Spoiler:


While Asgard is usually a frozen town or empire.

Apart from that I wouldnt be surprised if they shared other minor things, but I'd rather attribute it to the lack of imagination of the game editors

There's actually only one anime sequence, and that's the OP and the ending.

There are two FMV sequences in the game, both CG not featuring the characters

All other cutscenes are engine-generated.

After playing it about this time last year, I really liked it a lot. it took me about 60 hours to finish, but I was playing slow cause it was in Japanese and I didn't bother leveling my characters to 99.

It's a really fun game, and I like the battle system a lot. Not a bad choice for what is effectively only my 3rd RPG, first one outside of Final Fantasy. I guess you could count Golden Sun, but it played so much like final fantasy it was almost the same.

So play, enjoy, if you have the english version you also have my sympathies as Namco USA didn't bother recording audio for the skits.

I'll finally be getting the (for me) US import version of Tales of Symphonia in about a week.
Why import? Because Namco removed the 60 Hz option from the game for the EU release, making it only in 50 Hz! >_< And this while their previous game, Soul Calibur, did have it!
It's a crying shame to me.

Got it back in july games like this make me happy i got a Cube rather than a PS2, it really takes advantage of the Cube's 4 player ports. Still havn't finished it but then it also took me 6 years to finish shining force 2 for the gen.

GBC means Game Boy Color.
GC stands for GameCube.

That game certainly was my best surprise of 2004. I hadn't bought any new game for over a year and I really needed to get something new. I bought this game thinking "wow! 'looks cool !" In fact, that game was so cool that I played well over 100 hrs in a few weeks I love the anime style and the battle system, and I really liked the story, which is quite more complex than it looks like.

I can't imagine how a RPG player could skip this one...

I got the game the 24th, and started playing it yesterday. I'm now almost five hours into it, and it's pretty cool.

Chinese? What the hell have you been smoking? This is a Japanese game. And no, you can't switch to the original.

I don't mind the skits not being voiced. The game features a lot of voice in other areas, so I think they did a big effort to voice those in English.

I've heard the original Japanese voices, and the new English ones are almost the same voice. I think they did a great job.

Tales of Symphonia is a prequal to Tales of Phantasia, not Destiny as evidenced by numerous references in ToP
