Western release planned for Unisonant Pack/Chronicles bundle of 2 RPGs in early 2014

Namco Bandai Games began streaming the first promotional video for Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack, the PlayStation 3 remaster of both Tales of Symphonia games, on Thursday. The same promotional video debuted at the Tales of Festival 2013 event earlier this month.

The set will bundle both the original 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 Genius (Genis in North America). 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 video above features the 2013 version of “Starry Heavens.”)

The remaster will debut in Japan on October 10 for the price of 6,980 yen (about $70). First copies of the game 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 also release the set in Europe, Australasia and the Americas early next year under the working title Tales of Symphonia Chronicles.
