Tales of Legendia Fans Patch Missing Voice Acting In Game’s Second Half

Tales of Legendia, an entry in the Tales of series that initially launched for PlayStation 2 in August 2005, is rather underrated and not discussed much almost two decades later. However, its official localized English release in 2006 suffers from a bizarre issue you would certainly not see nowadays.

Despite the first half of the game being fully dubbed in English, the second half is simply not voiced at all. Fans have speculated it as being due to budgetary constraints. Or, perhaps, it was simply a gargantuan mistake. Regardless, I do vividly recall how jarring it was to reach a certain point and witness the voice acting vanish entirely.

However, three fans, Julian, Trixarian, and Ethanol, have recently taken it upon themselves to create a patch, completely undubbing Tales of Legendia’s English voice work and instead implementing the entirety of the Japanese voiced script, including during the game’s second half.

As a result, English players can now finally experience this entry fully voiced. Huge thanks to the aforementioned individuals responsible for this feat.

Tales of Legendia is just one of many Tales of games I want to see ported to modern platforms. Will it ever happen? I’m fairly certain not, but I’d love to be proven wrong. Regardless, at least we have Tales of Symphonia launching in early 2023 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
