Got ourselves a US release, peeps. No set date yet.
Gotta wonder why they went with the new name, though. Dawn of the New World.

YES!!

I understand why "Dawn of the New World" makes sense because this story takes place after the two worlds combined, making a new world. Plus, the story seems to have focus on the consequences of the new world.

I still prefer "Knight of Ratatosk" though. Since a lot of the story also focuses on Ratatosk, like it's spirits and the Ratatosk Core.

I guess they thought few people would understand what "Ratatosk" is...

I was little afraid that it might not come to the US, and I like the name. And please let there be a option of Japanese dub.

So far, the only Tales game to keep its Japanese dub is the original Destiny, probably out of laziness. But who knows. Eternal Sonata apparently kept its Japanese dub in there.

Though, one must wonder how they'll do Ratatosk. Will they go the original Symphonia way and use some top names (Scott Menville for example), or do their LA route that they've been doing recently (Bang Zoom/ Animaze. Bosch, Freeman, Lee, O'Brien, etc.)?

Jennifer Hale, please! She did Sheena. And if they could have Cam Clarke's voice in there too, that'd be great, as he did Kratos.

It's entirely possible. He came back for Radiant Mythology, though he was probably the only one who did. He could come back for a little narration, I'm sure.

To the negative cookie giver: I am not justifying dubbig in any kind of way, merely stating the fact that the Tales of Symphonia dub is better than most I have heard, of course the original Japanese version is better but what can we do.

Oh well, back on topic, seems like the North American release won't be out for a while. When is it due to be out?? (better pre-order it )

Homepage updated again, talesofsymphonia wii HP
-new hp picture (boxart cover?)
-2 new characters, Alice and Decus
-new screenshots and system info
-new animated move screen, featuring the new characters

This game is shaping pretty good, cannot wait until it is released. I have no doubt that like the gamecube title this installment will have a cult following, however like most tales titles i'm not sure about if it will be a big success.

Yeah, iirc a recent scan (the first one to show the 2 new characters) had that pic with a comment saying it was to be the box art next to it.

The new HP cover makes me want to get the game so much!

Spoiler for system translations:


What is this, Pokemon?

Unison Attacks are back, as well as the Sorcerer's Ring!


New characters:

Spoiler for Alice:


I never thought one could stuff so many horrible qualities in one simple profile...
*shivers in fear*
Does she die? Oi, does she?...


Spoiler for Decus:


Loser that stalks the lunatic...


100% chance of being antagonists, I say...

Who wants to bet that this Alice plays counter to Marta's tomboy by being the ever so perfect lady like girl type....at least on the outside.

edit: Well now that I've read the spoilers it seems I was right. Generally the name or rather concept of Alice is invoked in Japanese productions to represent a sense of absolute purity in the fact of outright chaos (See Alice in Wonderland). Or at least this is what I've gathered from the characters that have shared the name. In reality this girl sounds almost exactly like Haruhi. I wouldn't be surprised if they got Aya Hirano to do her voice.

Not really surprised that she apparently talks like an innocent little girl. That's how they do it I keep telling people. The old innocent looks and cutesy voice and then Wham with the old fork in the eye.

More screens now on dengekionline (looks like from pre release or debug version). Still no release date ;_;

And there seems to be a wii freeloader version coming this easter from datel, which apparently support Wii games. (please discuss it in the wii thread and not here, it is just a piece of info, for people who might want to import this game)

Even more screens on watch.impress
Well actually they are the same ^^;

Official HP updated, now with new character bio, including Brute, Hawk and Magner. Plus more about the system, monster and battle system, and screenshots from both, animation and in-game.

Keh, why do we have bad guys who look so good (like Alice), and then we have bad guys like these :
Spoiler for pictures:


The new update for monsters is slightly interesting. Simply introductions to a few monsters and their attribute, attack, and skill.

In Battle system, they update with the great "hi-ougi"s (which seem to look cool, from just a few screenshots).

Spoiler for Brute:


Hmm... Interesting... At least one "party" in the game is confirmed... "Vanguard", where Alice, Decus, this guy, and others are in.
This will be troublesome...

Spoiler for Hawk:


Alice-sama~~~~!!
*gasp* Crap, I lost it for a moment...

Spoiler for Magner:


*sigh* In the end, the only update we have are of three antagonists...

I wish I could play the JP version of Ratatosk, but Wiis have region lock... *hiss*
Pointless hope, but I wish the English versions will have a Japanese track for voices. I want to here what they are supposed to sound like. Luckily, Symphonia's dubs weren't that bad...

So it's coming out soon in Japan pretty cool, well I think I should stay avoid any new info on the game as I don't know want to get spoiled. Oh yeah does anybody know how to change the title? Because I want to change the title to "Tales of Symphonia: Knight of Ratatosk(Dawn of the New World)".

Another HP update, now with a short TV(?) PV, link

It is probably the last update before release next month. And if you actually preorder it you get a bonus DVD, as far as i understand.

Yeah it's just a short TV advert. Nothing big.

As for the bonus DVD, yeah it's a preorder extra. It contains the following:
- Tales of Symphonia Digest Video
- "Chat Drama" based on Raine's class.
- Jump Festa 2008 Trailer
- Voice Actresses Interview
