Bandai Namco has announced the release date of Tales of Symphonia Remastered. September’s Nintendo Direct showcase was the event we heard about the remaster for the first time. The game was initially released in 2003 and was then ported to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game is available on these consoles, but it’s not a pleasant experience to play with 2003 rules. As we expected, Bandai Namco kept their promise and announced further details about the remastered version. Tales of Symphonia Remastered is on the way, and here are the trailer and the release date.
A remaster doesn’t mean a sequel, so you should keep your expectations balanced. Bandai Namco has made a few more statements alongside the release date. The platform availability and the official trailer are included in their speeches made today.
Tales of Symphonia Remastered Release Date and Trailer
The game will be released on February 23, 2023, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The original game was already available on the past-generation consoles and also compatible with the new generation, thanks to the backward compatibility. But as the studio says, the remastered version contains many visual enchantments, gameplay improvements, and new features. The new release rewrites the game with today’s standards instead of 2003. This should mean a lot for the Tales of Symphonia fans.
Here’s the trailer for Tales of Symphonia Remastered that is released on the official PlayStation channel. However, everything is the game as the other platforms.
One of the best things we heard is the game keeps the local co-op feature. It was featured in the original game, and it’s great to see it with the remastered version. It would be much better if the game allowed you to use the co-op version online. We should expect that because it’s 2022. It’s tough to have local lobbies on consoles. We hope to play it in a more modern way, even if it requires a subscription like PlayStation Plus.
