Tales of the Rays Adds Playable Seles; Zelos’ Sister from Tales of Symphonia

To commemorate the incoming launch of Tales of Symphonia Remastered, Bandai Namco has announced that its Japan-only mobile title, Tales of the Rays, has added Seles Wilder as a playable character.

Obtained via the event “Echoes of our Hidden Thoughts,” this marks Seles’ first playable appearance in the series. She is the sister of the party member Zelos and could be fought in Tales of Symphonia’s tournament system.

If you play Tales of the Rays, the fansite Abyssal Chronicles has discussed recent developments with the game, including the addition of Seles.

The tweet announcing this news is viewable below:

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.

Tales of Symphonia Remastered will launch Westward for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on February 17, 2023.

In case you missed it, over 2,000 Tales of songs are making their way to streaming services.

We recently discussed the number of Tales of games that have never been localized and those that have never been ported, making most of the franchise notably inaccessible to contemporary audiences.
