Remember that rumor that started circulating a while back regarding a HD re-release for Tales of Symphonia on PlayStation 3? Well it looks like that’s not going to be happening, sorry to disappoint.

The rumor stated that series producer Hideo Baba had revealed a Tales of Symphonia: Perfect Edition, which would include HD remakes of Tales of Symphonia and Dawn of the New World for PlayStation 3. However, speaking to Joystiq at a recent Tales of Xillia European event Baba expressed his surprise at the rumor.

“So last weekend I went to Madrid, Spain – to expomanga,” he said, “And I had a signing session with fans. And I was asked by one of the fans about this rumor. So he said, ‘I heard of a rumor that Tales of Symphonia and Dawn of the New World are getting a ‘Perfect Edition’ on PS3, is it true?’ And [my reaction was] ‘What!?’ [Baba laughs]. I didn’t know anything about it so I was very surprised at that rumor.”

Baba clarified to JPGames.de exactly what he meant by his original statement, “That fan then said that it’s the tenth anniversary of Tales of Symphonia in Japan this year,” he said, “And I just said that there might be something coming, as a celebration. But it will be more like a ‘Tales of Café’ or an event at NamcoCon… but we actually have no plans yet, there are only ideas.”

So there you have it, no HD remake for Tales of Symphonia is in the pipeline. However, if you’re eager for more Tales of action there’s always Tales of Xillia, which will be available in North America from August 6 and Europe from August 9 for PlayStation 3.
