A Look At What’s Inside The Tales of Symphonia Chronicles Collector’s Edition

By Ishaan . February 6, 2014 . 11:00am

Namco Bandai have shared an unboxing video of the Tales of Symphonia Chronicles collector’s edition. Or rather, they call it an “unboxing,” but there isn’t actually anyone doing the unboxing. It’s more of a “presentation,” if you will. Watch it below.

  • Surgeon of Death

    ……………….Just take it all

  • Spirit Macardi

    They’re still using that instrumental crap opening made for the localization of Symphonia 2 instead of putting back in Three-Legged Race from the Japanese version?! They could at least have an instrumental version of the same song, like what they did with Karma in the localization of Tales of the Abyss.

    Meh, at least Presea’s Klonoa outfit is still in the first game… Right?

    • Pereb

      You mean the openings in the game? It was confirmed they’ll be the same ones as in the Japanese version of Chronicles.

    • ZEROthefirst

      Like Pereb said it’s already been confirmed that the openings will be the same as the Japanese version.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Already pre-ordered Namco. Stop tempting me even more… >_<

  • I called GameStop about two minutes ago and asked if they were able to take reservations on the CE. They said they weren’t, so does that mean people interested in getting a CE (who weren’t able to before) need to go elsewhere for one?

    • ZEROthefirst

      The CE was only open to a limited amount and most people put their pre orders in for it a few months ago (myself included around October). So at this point you’re either going to have to wait for someone to throw a copy up on amazon/ebay for a higher price or see if you get lucky and can find a place that has open orders :/

      • Well, siliconera had an article stating that an extra 3000 CEs were going to be available. That’s why I’m confused. Granted, I won’t lose sleep if I don’t snag one but I was curious to see if they did.

        • ZEROthefirst

          Was going to edit my last post but it vanished now. Anyways my bad I didn’t read the entire article so it went from 15k units to 18k instead of me thinking 10k units initially. Also maybe try calling your gamestop back if you are in the U.S. (saying U.S. because the article about that referred to that and I don’t know if you’re in Europe or the U.S.) because that article was just from yesterday so they may not have put it into effect yet so that people can get it.

          Edit: Now the other response has re-surfaced, so I just deleted it instead lol

    • Andrew Van

      I’m assuming that the 3000 extra copies being produced will be available on namco’s online store, the thing is i don’t know when they’ll be updating their site to allow for pre-orders. So as of now, it’s all a waiting game.

  • The Watcher

    All “unboxing” videos should be like this, it’s more entertaining than some rep pretending to sound enthusiastic.

  • Kornelious

    Wait, that’s it? What happened to this? Or is the EU version different?

    • SerendipityX

      The EU version is different, this (your pic) is the updated version of the US one.

      • Kornelious

        Yay :) I still hope that the steelbook comes aside from the original case though…

        • ALfromHELLSING

          That’s one epic Collector’s Edition. I didn’t know it comes with steelbook as well. Bamco rocks!
          Now let them bring Hearts & Innocence and they’ll be the best.

    • transferstudentx

      wait isnt that unfair seriously what! the problem with xillia CE is nothing compared to this 4 cds and art booklet,steelbook how is this different in treatment even legal

    • artemisthemp

      EU doesn’t get steelbook, Art book or theme (unless you feel like Pre ordering a second copy on Psn)

  • Crimson_Cloud

    I got this covered. Next problem, please just let it arrive safely and unharmed to my home. XD

    • Eefara

      I’m praying Amazon will be kind to my copy…. DX

      • Crimson_Cloud

        No kidding. Let’ just hope they aren’t having a bad day. ˇˇ’

  • kaotron

    I’ve never been big on HD/remaster port games I’ve already played but I guess I’m buying it again just for this set alone…

    …btw, I love those mini figures.

    • pressstart

      I put my preorder in mostly because of the figures, and I don’t even have a PS3 -_-

  • fairysun

    So, how much money do I have to steal to be able to afford this?(Translation for commoner: What’s the price for this collector edition?)

    • Xerain

      A hundred dollars.

  • Eric Harris

    does any one know if the regular edition is going to have a limited special case like Xillia did in the west? Cause I really don’t like those fat style boxes like NISA uses for their LEs.

  • artemisthemp

    Looks like Namco forgot the Steelbook, Artbook and theme in EU version

    • InfinityAge11

      The NA version has these too, right?
      EDIT: Oops, nevermind, I just saw it further down the comments.

  • Definetly worth the price. I still have my copy of the GCN version and can’t wait to get this on HD! The figures are adorable too :3

  • Guest

    i didnt preorder this CE it preorderd me!

  • Yan Zhao

    First Quarter of 2014, too many RPGs to play!!! AHHHHHH!!!!

  • Ric Vazquez

    Godly, long live JRPG.

  • Ryumoau

    The Lloyd Statue and free ps3 theme are literally the only things that interest me. I don’t care about art books or cds i’ll never listen to.
    I wish there was a $50 Lloyd Statue edition or something. lol
