    Default Tales of Symphonia US & Paper Mario 2 (Mario Story 2) News!

    News from Lik Sang [br][br] Mario Story 2 (Paper Mario 2) (last week's Famitsu rates: 9, 8, 8, 8 - 33/40) has been released in Japanese version today, a few days ahead of schedule. On the other hand, the US edition of Tales of Symphonia has reached us a little bit later than expected, and after the Tropical Storm alert, preorders are now being taken care of for both titles. New orders are welcome and ship within 24 hours starting from Monday.[br][br]Mario Story / Paper Mario 2[br][br]The sequel to the popular Mario RPG series. The game will have a mix of platform action, adventure and RPG elements. The battle system resembles the one found in Mario & Luigi for GameBoy Advance. There are also a number of mini games available for play during the quest. With very original graphical style, Mario Story has a very unique look 'n' feel.[br][br] Tales of Symphonia[br][br]One of the hottest Japanese RPGs of last Christmas is finally coming out in US version, with English texts, dialogs and menus. Tales of Symphonia has one of the fiercest, most action packed battle systems ever created with hundreds of special attacks, spells, and combos. Up to 4 players can control all the members of your party during battles. The game boasts over 80 hours of gameplay in an epic, emotionally charged storyline, illustrated by beautiful cel-shaded graphics from renowned artist Kosuke Fujishima.[br][br]Tales of Symphonia is the latest installment in Namco's ever-growing saga and there are already several derivated products which have been released around this popular series. At the moment, Lik Sang is carrying a high-quality Japanese book dedicated to the artworks of the game, as well as several toys starring the characters of the ToS (or previous episode Tales of Phantasia). The Tales of Symphonia capsule toys from Bandai ship randomly for US$ 4.95 and feature Presea Combatir, Shihna, Genius Sage, Collet and Lloyd Irving. We also have high-quality Tales of Phantasia One Coin Figures from Kotobukiya, shipping for US$ 4.95 each. These are Superbly molded trading figures featuring Cless Alvein, Chester Barklight, Mint Adonade, Arche Klaine, Fujibayashi Suzu, Klarth F. Lester and one secret character. These are the 'stone' color versions and require painting. Paints and brush have to be purchased separately. [br][br]Lik Sang

    I can't wait for Paper Mario to come out! I enjoyed Mario RPG for the SNES, I enjoyed Paper Mario for the N64, and hopefully, I will enjoy Paper Mario 2!

    Well look at this way, GC will still have better graphics
    with the anitialiasing, not to mention load times will be
    better by default.

    Yeah but I still hate the fact that I bought a GC and everything that comes out seems to come out on every other system to. All ps2 users have to do is whine hard enough and they will get the game for ps2.
