There was a rumour circulating the web a month or so ago that suggested that Namco Bandai were contemplating a HD re-release of Tales of Symphonia and Dawn of the New World. Online gaming publication Joystiq recently caught up with Tales producer Hideo Baba on a recent European tour to promote Tales of Xillia, and he subsequently squashed the rumour. Here’s what Baba had to say about Tales of Symphonia: Perfect Edition.
“So last weekend I went to Madrid, Spain – to expomanga. And I had a signing session with fans. And I was asked by one of the fans about this rumor. So he said, ‘I heard of a rumor that Tales of Symphonia and Dawn of the New World are getting a ‘Perfect Edition’ on PS3, is it true?’ And [my reaction was] ‘What!?’ [Baba laughs]. I didn’t know anything about it so I was very surprised at that rumor.”
