Coming to EU with extra content!

New accessories, unlockable gallery, and new special effects during fights are all part of the extra content for the EU release.

Highly recommended from me and I am not even a huge RPG fan, if you liked ToS then this is right up your alley ;)

Finally got this game and have to admit that it was very hard to find this game in retail stores. I went to 3 different gamestops and finally found it at the last one. I normally buy games online but wanted to see what the game stores were like around my house. It seems like many good games are not getting good shelf space.

I think I overheard the gamestop guy mention ordering more ToS after I bought my copy. Oh and I have only played the game for an hour but it seems really solid. The beginning is kinda slow but most RPGs have a slow beginning. This should consume my attention until the next round of games come out ;)

Anyone saying Marta's weak is crazy. She's like...the best heroine battle wise.

Get all her speed cast skills which brings the speed of ALL spells down to to like one second and the Healer's Ribbon which brings all artes to 1 (including mystic artes) and she's insane. She becomes really broken.

Marta is not a weak character... Play as her and use a mystic arte. It does a lot of damage plus heals your party.

I beat them pretty easily using 2player. It would have been pretty difficult to do by yourself.

Remember to take out Alice first, then Decus.

But in a skit, everyone is calling the monster Nazdrovie but this time Tenebrae wants the members to call it the light-frog xD.

I knew it would happen. The moment I started playing I was completely captivated by ToS: DotNW. I was a little iffy about Emil at first, but now he's really grown on me. Now that I'm close to the end, I can say that he comes across as a very well-rounded character. As for the game, aside from a few technical issues (lots of loading times), I have no regrets playing this game. It's not as epic as the original (as expected), but it's still a pleasant way to spend 20+ hours of gametime. And for a system currently lacking RPGs, this is a pretty good effort.

ToS doing better in the US than Japan wouldn't be surprising, considering that the Gamecube's Japanese installed was about 1/4th of what it was in America. That said, I have my suspicions about the numbers VGchartz gives for ToS.

The last credible figure I can find for Symphonia sales pegs it at 285k in America (circa early '05). Wikipedia mentions worldwide sales of 1.2 million, which encompasses both Japanese releases (390k-PS2 and 311k-GC), the above mentioned 285k US figure, and 184k for the European release. I have seen nothing to support the 500k VGchartz lists for the US version.

Source:
http://web.archive.org/web/20050308024118/http://www.the-magicbox.com/game20050215.shtml

Now, keep in mind that it took a little over five months for Symphonia to achieve that 285k figure in America. Also keep in mind that even Final Fantasy has never seen sales for a sequel outpace the "original" in the US.

You still expect me to believe this game isn't being overtracked?

@spaceworlder

The Tales Series is not that niche. Also remember that the original tales of symphonia sold extremely well on the gamecube, over 500k (outselling the Japan sales for the Gamecbue version). There is no reason to believe that these numbers are being overtracked.

Somehow, I doubt that a game in a nich franchise in a niche genre can sell faster here than in Japan, where the franchise and genre aren't so niche. It's like asking me to believe that Japanese Resistance 2 sales are outpacing American ones.

As I said its selling like Fire Emblem in America. Hopefully it will have better legs then FE but we'll see. If not then we are looking at about 350k-400k in America and a possibly 100k-150k in E/O. That's about 800k WW which is not bad but I would have wanted more.

Doing pretty good, much better than Vesperia. I think it probably will at least get 300K in the US if it stays at a steady 12K+, and will probably hit 600K worldwide. Namco should be happy.

just beat the game, ending is GREAT. It only takes 30 hours to beat this game. Do so the story is very good.

Also it is a spinoff. Once you play it, you will know that for sure.

Well it depends where you are after 4 hrs. It took me 2-3 hrs before I really started to love the game like I do now. And yes it gets a hell of a lot better as you progress. It's one of the few games where it actually is nothing but building until the final cutscene which is usually quite surprising in the game. No climax in the middle.

Damn, after playing the game with my bro for a while it became obvious to me this wouldn't sell nearly as well as the first. It seems like they put little effort into the game... honestly, it was painful trying to play it. I forced myself for ~4hrs until I (or we) couldn't take it anymore.

Does the game get any better later on? I lent it to a cousin, maybe I'll give it another chance later. Otherwise, it's definitely getting sold. It plays like a really, really bad, corny anime. I don't recall the first ToS being like this. It's too bad, because I really wanted to see what happened to the old characters...

That's what MS does haha. MS has done that ever since they've entered the gaming industry. Throwing around their money weight to be able to take losses in this industry but still stay afloat because of profits in the other areas. Thus they are able to compete with the major losses.

It's really not fair at all which I think its such sweet justice that PS2 beat them badly last generation and that Wii is beating them in this one. Makes me think there is some justice left in the world. Nothing against 360 just MS. I know its just business but its not the kind of business I like. No honor or respect for competition or themselves. I can be an idealist right.
