Gonna break my unwritten rule that I don't talk about mobile releases much since Namdai has made it easier to follow them lately.
In a bit of a stealth release (the official site still just says Autumn 2013), Tales of Phantasia was released for iOS in Japan today.
This release is based on the Full Voice Edition released for the PSP back in 2006, so it features a fully voiced main story and different battle sprites than the Super Famicom, PlayStation, or Gameboy Advance versions (and yes, they kept the anime opening from the PlayStation version in).
The game can be played from beginning to end without paying anything (yes, even the game itself is free), but there are items that can be bought to make things easier if one wants. A few more screens here.
So remember all these trademarks we've been getting recently?
After Namco Bandai filed for Tales of Zestiria in both Japan and Europe, it would seem they've done so in the US as well.
As a reminder, it means nothing until we see results, but it does at least seem like they're leaning towards this name or ToZ in general (they still have their other billion recent trademarks to fall back on, after all).
Namco released some English screenshots of Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. I won't embed all of them (couldn't even if I wanted to thanks to site restrictions), but I will post a few from both games and link the others.
