Tales of Symphonia is Coming to Steam


Heads up, PC gamers. More Bandai Namco JRPG love is coming your way!

Following the announcement of a PC release for Tales of Zestiria last month, it has now been confirmed that Tales of Symphonia is also destined for PC digital download via Steam.

Bandai Namco didn’t give a price or release date in the official press release, and the same goes for the Steam page beyond a vague 2016 release target. The Steam page does at least show that the game will feature achievements, trading cards, and support for controllers and cloud saves.


As an added bonus, Bandai Namco is currently running a Steam pre-order campaign for Tales of Zestiria. Pictured above, the campaign includes a starting bonus plus three reward tiers based on the number of pre-orders, and if the final tier is reached all customers will get a free download of Tales of Symphonia when it’s released. That’s a pretty sweet deal. (At press time the campaign has already passed the first reward tier and is about a quarter of the way into the second tier.)

Hopefully these “Tales of” games turn in successful PC debuts and this is only the beginning of a JRPG surge. I sure can think of a number of other Bandai Namco JRPGs I’d be thrilled to see on Steam, namely Eternal Sonata and Ni no Kuni.
