It's not due to that stupid idea of Nintendo owning the localization or whatever crap people keep saying. I don't even know why people keep saying that. I think they'll redub for continuity sake, new content, and possibly being unable to reuse their original dub recordings.
Ah. I simply don't think it will be affordable, given the $40 price point. Paying higher per hour price for the original cast to voice new content might be cheaper than an entire re-voice, though being unable to re-use the existing dub would be an issue.

I'm pretty much indifferent to the new actors, sans Lloyd who I thought was an improvement, and Zelos who I thought was a lot worse.

Dawn of the New World has an excellent soundtrack.
New battle themes are great and the remixes/rearrangements of the old ones are better than the originals.


My favorite track from DotNW: Person who conceives frenzy

World map is a menu :/
I loved Tales of Syymphonia overworld back in the day, but it wasn't that good.
Having an auto pilot in Tales of the Abyss was such a welcome addition.
I didn't miss the traveling at all in Dawn of the New World.

Excellent, I finally listened to some of the cool tracks on Youtube.

Seriously , dub those skits ! ( or just give me the japanese voice option . )
I hope they do this, would love for the skits to be dubbed. (Dual-audio would be great too to get both.)

The only reason I don't want them to re-record Symphonia is because of Cam Clarke. He's not in nearly enough games anymore, and I miss his voice.

If they can re-record Symphonia's script but get Clarke back to voice Kratos, I am totally down for them redoing everything and voicing the skits.

Pretty sure Clarke won't be a problem since he's voiced Kratos in every appearance he's had. Same with Heather Hogan as Colette. Beyond that though I doubt we'd get the other originals back (I know some people say Presea was the same but it sounds pretty different to me).

Is PS3 now the console with the most Tales releases? If not, it has to be up there, right?
For Japan, it's PS2, even if you exclude spinoffs. It had Destiny 2, Symphonia, Legendia, Rebirth, Abyss, and Destiny (and Director's Cut).

PS3 might be second most now though.

PSP is in the lead for now with ten individual releases. PS2 follows with eight.

Counting Chronicles as one product, PS3 only has five so far, finally edging out the PS1. It'll probably get to six or seven before all's said and done.

I guess I forgot how many PSP had. PSP really did have a ton (and I wish I could play them on my Vita).

I say Namco should get a kickstarter going to fund bringing the old Symphonia voice actors back for the skits. I definitely wouldn't mind waiting 2 or 3 extra months to play for that, and I would gladly help fund it!

If they are going to do the skit, they might as well voice the dialogue they left out last time? Didn't they not voice a lot of dialogue due to money?

Though I think that some of it, for the GC version at least, was because of the limited space of the GC's little proprietary game discs. That, in spite of the fact that Symphonia had 2 discs. The CGI cutscenes probably ate up a lot of that space.

Hmm... I played Lloyd, Colette, and Sheena pretty well back in the day. I also played Regal some, but as much as I liked him he came too late in the game for me to want to spend the time to do well with him.

Oh I only play Tales games using the protagonist. During Symphonia though I tried using them all and only Sheena felt... not awful. Colette is a mess unless you spam Paraball. I guess Zelos wasn't too bad either. They controlled better in DoTNW.

I hoooope we get some new content, please. Like making Alice and Decus playable like it was intended.

I was considering doing a playthrough where I only controlled Colette in every part of the game where she was available. Would have gone the Pow Hammer route, though. Maybe I'll do that this time, for laughs.

What are the conditions for unlocking the Toss Hammer special on Pow Hammer, anyway? Is it random?

It's just the footage from the Tales of Festival... Oh well, it's not like we know nothing about those games. Will probably wait for the collection to drop in price. Or get someone to send me the western version maybe.

I didn't like anyone in Symphonia besides Lloyd really. Regal, Presea, and Zelos were okay but I would never play as them over Lloyd. Mages were unplayable basically. Only after Symphonia did they start making more party members fun to play beside the lead.

And what's this about Alice and Decus being playable? Never heard of that before.

They probably had strings and movesets that pretty much made them almost playable but the developers probably ran out of time to fully implement them.

There is a good chunk of unused content in Symphonia 2 that I wonder if they are going to do anything with.

Genis as Luke is god awful, who the hell thought that was a good idea? Lloyd as Guy is alright I guess.

Screens don't look hot, but the new cut-ins should be ace at least. Wasn't expecting much though so meh.

Did they do anything other than blow up the image to fit an HD Screen. It doesn't look like the basic menu assets were upressed.
