Tales of Symphonia

Post by Danyoru » Tue 07.05.2005 1:12 pm

Does anyone play the game "Tales of Symphonia", it's an anime RPG and it looks amazing!!! But I'm not a big RPG fan anymore so I'm a little unsure about getting it.
Does anyone know if it is available in Japanese with english subs?

... Video games don't have subbed/dubbed versions, do they? Am I missing something?

I haven't played it, but I haven't heard great things about it. Are you looking for the Japanese version of the game? Do you have a GameCube that will play it?

Harisenbon: Nah, they don't usually have subbed/dubbed versions. Not like movies anyway. Some games's US releases -do- offer both dialogues with english subs to accompany them. 'Some' is being generous, actually. I can only think of one off the top of my head, and that was Xenosaga.

Danyoru: Harisenbon has a point. If you're looking to import the original japanese, you better make sure you have a japanese gamecube, too, because you can't just swap on the fly. There's different encoding, so a US gamecube won't play Japanese games. Without some.. 'tweaking'. And tweaking usually involves doing stuff that could fry your 'cube.

Mandolin,

However, that's why the GBA and (I believe) the DS are so great, because they don't have region encoding.
