Favorite RPG Tales of the symphonyRecently remaster should have been greeted with applause by fans of the Tales series, but instead, the Switch version in particular drew some criticism due to various technical issues. And Bandai Namco knows about them (via Abyssal chronicles).

In a series of tweets, the official Twitter account for the Japanese Tales series admitted that “there are currently issues” specifically with the Switch version — which turns out to be the best-selling version of the game in Japan. The developer also confirms that “we are currently investigating a fix” (thanks to a745 Abyssal Chronicles for the translation).

In the thread, the Tales Channel account promised more information as soon as an update was available, and said, “We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused our customers.” You can read more information

It’s good that Bandai Namco has acknowledged the issues, but it’s still unclear how long the update will take. Fans who picked up the game at launch have been disappointed that Tales of Symphonia Remastered isn’t quite up to snuff, and it’s a recent suspicion that makes us question why remasters sometimes end up the way they do.

Fingers crossed for Tales fans then, and hopefully the Remastered will be in much better shape in the coming weeks. We noticed some issues with the game in our reviewincluding inconsistent frame rates.
