Though still not set in stone, Baba-san mentioned to them that they will most likely re-translate and re-dub everything in Tales of Symphonia for its coming HD remaster.
Though nothing is official yet and it's not that clear yet, since they're using the PS2 version of Symphonia for this, there are possibly problems with the GameCube translation. Hopefully they'll officially clear this up soon. And no, Dawn of the New World won't be touched, it seems.
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles will include more than high-definition graphics, new cut-ins, and new theme arrangements, series producer Hideo Baba has said.
In the August issue of Viva Tales of Magazine, Baba was asked if the game would include further additional elements. He replied that they’re currently working on some things, but could not say more as to what they are.
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles is coming to PlayStation 3 this October in Japan, and in early 2014 in North America, Europe, and Australasia.
Also some speculation going around from the special edition box art since Seles is on the box and not hardly in the game at all O_o...
UPDATE (July 6, 2013): A Namco Bandai representative has just informed us that NO, Tales of Symphonia will not be-retranslated or re-dubbed for Chronicles. The rep has officially confirmed this to be NOT true and that there will be no re-dub.
That's who Judith always reminded me of now that I see it lol.
The latest issue of Jump reveals Colette and Sheena's cameo costumes for Tales of Symphonia Unisonant Pack. Along with Lloyd as Guy Cecil and Genis as Luke fon Fabre, Colette's costume is Rita Mordio and Sheena's is Judith, both from Tales of Vesperia. At the bottom left corner of the page, you can also see Sheena's new Hi-Ougi cut-in. Check out the scan below (scan provided by @kazu4281)
Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack, known as Tales of Symphonia Chronicles in the west, will be released in Japan this October 10, 2013 and in the US and Europe early 2014.
Compared to Vesperia PS3 and Graces F, Symphonia PS2 didn't get much additional content at all. I'm not going to pay full price for a game I already have just for a couple of additional scenes and costumes.
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles includes HD remasters of Tales of Symphonia and the Wii-only sequel Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. First print copies from Japan include a 10th Anniversary Greeting Card designed by ufotable, a video with a message by LIoyd Irving’s voice actor Katsuyuki Konishi & Emil Castagnier’s voice actor Hiro Shimono, and a custom theme for PS3.
Here’s a look at Tales of Symphonia in high definition.
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles comes out on October 10 in Japan and is slated for release in the West next year.
