Don't know why they went out on a limb and changed the name drastically. Whatever. New Symphonia game. June 28 Japanese release, September 2008 US release, get it. There's a naked catgirl in it, go. Why is she there? Because it's a fetish that has existed in Japan for decades, next to the Gothic Lolitas....
Why aren't you using that time machine in your grandmother's basement yet?
In all seriousness however, this new tales game is actually a big deal. I'm not sure if the development team is the same from the Symphonia and Aybss team, but if it is, you can expect some really good, quality work. All but Kratos return in the new game and apparently even after 2 years, no one has changed in appearance, unless you count the increased saturation on one's clothes. Presea's got her feelings back (yay) which is all I care about really...
It's coming for the Wii and you can definitely expect this game to be very good. There hasn't been any word on whether or not Namco is going to use the same voice actors but I hope they do and they probably will. The japanese team did and they used a few of the same actors for Tales of the World, so hopefully we'll get some more high quality voice acting coupled with a game that has very good prospects.
Apparently, there's going to be a new system in which you can get monsters to be on your side (like Dragon Warrior Monsters). In total, you can have up to 10 characters in your party and 4 on the field. I haven't heard of any details on FoFs from Tales of the Abyss, but what Namco seems to be doing is a good strategy. They take a very effective battle system, and continue to improve it. I was a bit sad that Unison Attack wasn't in Tales of the Abyss, but I'm not really worried.
I wonder how they're going to incorporate the Wii mote. I'm probably going to just use a Wavebird but that seems to be defeating the entire purpose of the console...
Whatever, this will be another (among many) reasons to finally get that Wii. Me? I don't actually know. Disgaea 3 comes out on the PS3 but Tales of Symphonia comes out on the Wii... Decisions, decisions
