Fresh off the announcement of Tales of Zestiria coming to PC, Bandai Namco has revealed Tales of Symphonia is the next in the series to make the leap over. The Japanese role-playing game was originally released in 2003 as a Gamecube title, but it’s getting an HD repackage for the PC release.
Tales of Symphonia will be coming in 2016, Bandai Namco announced, and it will be a ported version of the HD version which hit as part of a Tales of bundle on PlayStation 3 last year. The RPG is one of the most well-received games in the series, weaving a tale of the fate of the world hanging in the balance as good and evil collide.
Perhaps the best news for JRPG fans is that Tales of Symphonia HD will be coming free with
Tales of Zestiria pre-orders, if enough people pre-order the game and hit the third stretch goal.
At the moment it appears as if it’s just Tales of Symphonia coming over to PC; there’s no news on Dawn of the New World, its sequel. Bandai Namco is likely staggering the Tales of releases, so we wouldn’t be surprised to hear more about that later.
Over on the system requirements side of things, Tales of Symphonia has identical requirements to the upcoming Tales of Zestiria. You can about those in more detail here.
