Following the worldwide shutdown of the mobile Tales of title, Tales of Crestoria, and the announcement of a manga aiming to preserve the game’s storyline, said manga has finally begun serialization in Japan.
In fact, the first chapter is freely viewable digitally via Shonen Magazine, though this availability is an exception. Future digital chapters will require 80 coins on the service, although the minimum that can be bought per purchase is 120. Essentially, each chapter will cost roughly a little over a single US dollar.
There’s no word on whether an official English translation of this ongoing manga will occur at any point, but its first volume has been listed on Amazon Japan with a January 17, 2023, release. So, if any news were to arise regarding an official English translation, it’d likely be after that date. We’ll keep you all updated on any potential announcements made pertaining to this subject matter.
Lastly, new artwork for the manga was unveiled in its first chapter, viewable below:
Tales of Symphonia Remastered will launch Westward for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on February 17, 2023.
Tales of Symphonia was initially released for the Gamecube worldwide before receiving a Japanese-exclusive PlayStation 2 version that added more content. That same version would launch worldwide for PlayStation 3 and then eventually PC via Steam. This upcoming remaster is using the latest versions as the basis, though several new features are arriving, such as skippable events and improved maritime navigation.
