Namco Bandai Games began streaming the Richter promotional video for Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack, the PlayStation 3 remaster of both Tales of Symphonia games, on Thursday. In the video, Richter (voiced by Kenji Hamada) talks to Emil and remembers a time when the two fought.
Additionally, video game news website IGN began streaming an 18-minute video on Thursday of one of its staff playing the English version of the game at Tokyo Game Show. The video features the opening sequence of the game.
The video game set will bundle both the original 2003 Tales of Symphonia game (with its added features from the earlier PlayStation 2 port), as well as the Tales of Symphonia: Ratatosk no Kishi (known as Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World in North America) sequel for the Nintendo Wii.
The remaster will feature new cover art, new Mystic Artes cut-in images, and new Tales of the Abyss-themed costumes for Lloyd and Genis. Sheena and Colette will also receive a Judith and Rita costume respectively from Tales of Vesperia. All three theme songs for the game will be remixed for Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack, including Day After Tomorrow's "Starry Heavens" and "Soshite Boku ni Dekiru Koto" opening themes that were used for the original game's GameCube and PlayStation 2 releases respectively, and misono's "Ninin Sankyaku" song that served as the sequel's opening theme.
The remastered game will ship in Japan on October 10 for 6,980 yen (about US$70). The first copies will come with an original greeting card with an illustration from animation studio ufotable, a greeting card from Katsuyuki Konishi (voice of Lloyd) and Hiro Shimono (voice of Emil), an original PlayStation 3 custom theme, as well as other unannounced contents.
Namco Bandai Games plans to release the set in Europe, Australasia and the Americas early next year under the working title Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. The company plans to release the remastered game in the West with dual audio.
