“Tales of Symphonia” is a video game for the Nintendo GameCube. It was released in Japan on July 26th, 2004 and is noted as Namco Tales Studio’s first Tales game to be released outside of Japan following Tales of Phantasia . The game follows Lloyd Irving who teams up with Colette Brunel, Genis Sage, and others as they journey to save Colette from her (alleged) fate of turning into an angel.
The Tales series is known for adding a lot of twists and turns in their games with many plot developments woven between character interactions and different locations visited. Tales of Symphonia however, had more than the usual number of plot twists that several players found difficult to keep up with. Tales of Symphonia was followed by Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World which takes place two years after Tales of Symphonia .
