These Tales of Symphonia HD PC Requirements Don’t Look Quite Right


Bandai Namco have provided the system requirements for Tales of Symphonia HD on PC via the game’s Steam page. Keep in mind that Tales of Symphonia HD won’t be available until 2016, so these specs could change in the interim. With that in mind, here’s what the Steam page currently indicates you’ll need to play the game:



  • OS: Windows Vista 32/64
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+, 2.6GHz
  • Memory: 1 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce 8800GT / ATI Radeon HD 4830
  • DirectX: Version 9.0
  • Hard Drive: 7 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Gamepad support



  • OS: Windows 7 (x64) / Windows 8 (x64)
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-530, 2.93 GHz / AMD Phenom II X4 940, 3.0GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti / AMD Radeon HD 7850
  • Hard Drive: 7 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Gamepad support


The thing is, most of these requirements—with the exception of the hard drive space required—are the same as those for the more open world-esque Tales of Zestiria. Given how different the two games are, that’s a bit of an eyebrow-raiser. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the requirements for either one of the two updated in the future.
