Obviously aside from the Abyss port, I'm certain you'll see a Radiant Mythology and a VS. title eventually on either system. Hopefully no mothership title 'cause we never seem to get the handheld ones, lol.

It plays while you're battling Sheena, and then when you battle Abyssion. n___n

I got stuck in ToP and never continued, end of that story. :V But ask me anything about Tales of Symphonia ranging from the story to battle quotes, and I would probably know the answer.

I like... a lot of music. Though most of them from Symphonia. xD For Abyss I tend to lean towards the several Karma remixes or whatever as my favorites there. :V

    More than that, it also plays when you fight Regal and I think during certain battles in the Colosseum.

    Point taken. I think for the Colosseum battles it most likely plays while the two extra matches (Seles and the Cameo Trio respectively). I tend to think Sheena and definitely Abyssion though. xD; Sorry Regal!

      lol, he was pretty forgettable for me anyways. Nice backstory, but I just found him pretty boring. Never used him or had him in my party.

      Regal is a tough one to use in battle. He can actually make some really nice combos, but they're difficult to use. Only the AI can really get the hang of them until you have a lot of practice with him. He can heal, but there are obviously better choices than him (Raine, Zelos, Kratos). I really like Regal myself, but he doesn't usually find a placement in my team until I'm messing around.

      Also, I meant I forgot that Fatalize played while fighting Regal. I didn't forget Regal as a whole. xD

        I can never really use Regal, because well, I'm more used to spamming Tiger Blade related artes with Llyod. :B

        But yeah, he has nice combos; he works quite well with his spin kick in the Union attack.

          Even Tales of the World Radiant Mythology forgot Regal. He and Sheena are not in Radiant Mythology 2. Sheena is in Radiant Mythology 3, but still no Regal.

          I never used Regal. :x I don't think he's very popular, and it's not really his fault... Symphonia was kind of awful for ignoring characters. He and Presea should've been really important but they ended up really forgettable because the game tried to make us care about 9+ main characters at once. Since their "plots" all took place in the past, it was easy to look past them. I actually loved Regal's parts in ToS2 so I'd like to see him in more games. But alas, sounds like he's not in any spinoffs. :(

          I'd love a Tales of VS port to 3DS. I'd totally buy it. :D Or I'd be terrified because that would be one more reason to buy a Japanese one for imports...

          edit: Oh, and my favourite songs in the series are probably...
          → Dry Trail (Symphonia) [it's calming 8D]
          → Beat the Angel (Symphonia)
          → End of a Thought (Symphonia) [Kratos <3]
          → Prologue (Abyss)
          → Meaning of Birth (Abyss)
          → finish the promise (Abyss)
          → A Wish to the Starry Sky (Abyss)
          → United Oath (Vesperia)
          → Eternal Mind (Eternia)
          → Take Up the Cross (Phantasia--especially the VS remix)
          → Theme of Battle (Destiny 2, VS remix)
          → Encounter (Tempest, VS remix)

          ...n_n I like Motoi Sakuraba, even though most of his OSTs tend to sound the same.

            Adding to my favourite music list would be At the Time of Farewell from ToA, and Confrontations from Tales of the Tempest; the arranged remix. :3

            -shrug-

            I wouldn't call him boring per-se, he's a pretty good role model. =O
            Emil from ToS2 is kinda like him;
            Which BTW, do you guys even like Emil, Marta...or even Richter? ~

            /cause nowadays I don't hear much people talking about them as far as the topics of ToS is concerned. :x

            I didn't like any of the new cast members in ToS2. :x I LOVED the cameos from all the old characters and thought they were great, but the actual main characters in this game were just... grating and annoying. D:

            Yeah, he's definitely gotta change his style a bit. Even his non-Tales albums sounds similar.


            I'm sure I've posted this here before, but Emil has gotta be the most annoying RPG main character ever. Should have just made him a silent protagonist.

            Marta and Richter didn't do much for me either...

            This. I liked Alice and Decus, but as for any of the other new characters I didn't really find any of them appealing. Maybe Ratatosk, but that's basically it. I found more enjoyment in the game when one or more of the older cast members were in the group than just Emil/Marta.

            Oh, and Tenebrae was cool too. He made the Emil and Marta moments tolerable.

            Haha, yeah. When I started playing ToS, I couldn't help but think, "Haven't I heard this song in Golden Sun?"
            And yeah, same composer. o3o
            ...I still need to play ToS2. ;;

            ...haha, yeah, back when I was super obsessed with Symphonia, I had two of my friends play it and the first thing they said was "it sounds like Golden Sun". I'd never played a Motoi Sakuraba-composed game so I was almost offended they were implying the music in Symphonia wasn't original and awesome.

            And then I listened to some more of his OSTs and went "oh, okay I see what they mean."

            I'm dense so although I did play Golden Sun after playing Tales of Symphonia I didn't catch anything. xD; I should see about listening to it and concentrating more on it to get it.

            What I like about Symphonia's soundtrack is some of the remixes.

              I honestly think Symphonia 2 had a lot of potential -- like it could of been more of an epic game if say...Emil and Marta had an actual "human / elf/ half-elf team" other than the endless string of monsters they relied , and the symphonian team in the first game that they are always on a fixed level anyway...well that's what I think anyway.

              Alice and Decus could of been good candidates if they weren't villains.
              [Don't get me wrong, ToS2 is already a good enough game; I just thought "maybe" it could be better. ^.^']

              Symphonia 2 was a decent game (I mean, I've played it three times). But it's like you said: it lacked a lot of it. Part of it could be from the fact that it wasn't classified as a mothership game, but if they changed a few things (like the past Symphonia characters being able to level up with the Emil and Marta at the end and such) then it could have been a better game than it was. I guess it was a nice idea but poor executed type of thing? idk. I didn't really like who the main enemy was in the game. xD;

              The game lacks life (and a few other things) but thus is the result of most budget titles.

                ToS2 just didn't feel like Symphonia. But it was a pretty good game. Plus I loved Tenebrae! I love him like I love Arche, Zelos, and Jade!

                Pokemon Sapphire Hoenn's Rebirth - My own hack, making progress whenever possible.
                3rd Gen Multiplayer Project - Research and development, occasionally testing, sometimes with support.
                Pokemon Cursed/Creepy White - Group project, on hiatus for now with plans to return eventually.
                Animal Crossing Wild World playing as an animal - experimental, messing with models and textures

                Hacks I've worked on in the past:
                Pokemon Ruby Destiny Broken Timeline (pre-reboot) - Assisted with maps
                Pokemon HeartGold Prince Boo Edition - Experimental project with three small changes. Made at the request of YouTube LPer PrinceBoo21.

                Been super busy with work, life, and laptop problems. Hopefully I can get back into it soon, I fear I'm already rusty. Meanwhile I'm considering writing some of my hacks as a series of fanfics.

                Tenebrae is amazing. XD If it weren't for him I would have probably not have been able to put up with the Marta/Emil times. Marta is okay by herself. Emil is okay by himself. But those two together just bothers the hell out of me, more than another pairing in the Tales of Series. /kind of scared to mention it because of it's possibly popularity here.

                  I just remembered the best moment in ToS2! Zelos's first appearance! Everything was dramatic with Richter and Marta then all of a sudden, we hear our favorite theme and Zelos hits on Marta! The look on Richter and Emil's (especially Emil's) faces makes this scene clearly the best in the entire game!

                  I only really liked the part where you tell Emil who your traveling partner was, then have some small seen in Flanoir with the character you chose. (Chose Sheena of course. :])

                  My personal favourite was when you first meet Genis, and when you first meet Presea. |D;

                  I've chosen Genis and Colette for the Flanoirish event, but that's basically it.
