Julius & Edna Colored Prototypes, Velvet Figure Announced

The colored prototypes for the Julius and Edna figures by Alter were shown at Wonder Festival 2016 Winter. (Photos taken from here)

Also announced was a Velvet figure by Kotobukiya.

ToS OVA-German LE Art, Dub Preview

I missed a bit of this recently because I wasn't really keeping as close an eye as I should have (oops), but KSM uploaded the cover art of the limited edition of Tales of Symphonia: The Animation (the separate volumes should be using some of the character art from the Japanese volumes, though not all the characters since there are less discs, that is unless they changed their minds about that) as well as a short preview of the German dub using the scenes from episode 2 with Raine's Ruin Mode and the Ktugach fight, so basically nothing too spoilery in terms of story, but also means we don't get to hear certain characters who come along later just yet.

ToS Steam Port Launch Trailer

Bandai Namco put up a short trailer for the Steam release of Tales of Symphonia. It mostly just shows bits of the opening cinematic and early gameplay, but it's something.
