Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, the PlayStation 3 exclusive re-release of Namco Bandai’s most beloved Tales of game, as well as its much less lauded sequel, is getting a Collector’s Edition in Europe, that releases February 28 (which is also when the game releases there, incidentally).
The Tales of Symphonia Chronicles collection celebrates the 10th anniversary of the critically acclaimed classic, Tales of Symphonia by offering it and its follow-up story, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, on a single disc containing the entire Tales of Symphonia storyline with updated HD graphics and new content.
The Collector’s Edition comes packed with the following:
- A set of five Chibi Kyun Chara mini figures from Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World,
- A paperback novel detailing the story,
- A multi-disc soundtrack,
- Special collector’s packaging with artwork from Japanese animation studio, ufotable.
“In celebration of the Tales of Symphonia 10th Anniversary, we wanted to mark the occasion! Bringing back this epic and oneiric adventure was the first step to please fans and newcomers alike” said Mathieu Piau, EMEA Marketing Director for Namco Bandai Games Europe. “The second step was to offer to all our beloved Tales Of fans the Collector’s Edition they deserve, with some fantastic collectible content to dive further into the Tales of universe!”
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles releases next year. Next year also sees the western release of another major Tales of game, Tales of Xillia 2, the sequel to this year’s Tales of Xillia. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage on the titles.
Update: Tales of Symphonia Chronicles will be released on February 25th, 2013 in North America.
