Check out our review of Tales of Symphonia Remastered on Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, it is severely lacking in vital technical areas.
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 anime events and improved maritime navigation.
Tales of Symphonia Remastered is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.
In case you missed it, over 2,000 Tales of songs are making their way to streaming services.
