Though there are no scans yet, a reliable source has revealed new Tales costumes for the Symphonia cast in Tales of Symphonia, along with new features added for Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.
UPDATE: Screenshots from Famitsu added.The new Tales costumes include:
- Alvin costume (Tales of Xillia) for Zelos
- Elize Lutus costume (Tales of Xillia) for Presea
- Ludger Kresnik costume (Tales of Xillia 2) for Kratos
Having save files of Tales of Xillia and Tales of Xillia 2 will get you the costumes early in the game. If you don't have save data, you can get them on your second playthrough.
We also get to see the new Mystic Arte cut-ins for Lloyd, Genis and Presea.
As for Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, the new additional features include Head Change, which lets you equip accessories and such to Emil and Marta's heads, and the Gallery Mode, which lets you view various artwork and concept art for the game. Pictured above are a crown and a "Lloyd Wanted Poster" head change for Emil and a Noishe head and witch's hat for Marta. And apparently, the magazine also revealed a "Mecha Emil" for Emil and an HMD for Marta.
Some of you may remember that the head accessories and gallery mode features aren't exactly new. They were available as content exclusive to the European/PAL versions of the original release of Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World for the Nintendo Wii. For reference, some of the head changes available in the PAL version include the crowns (pictured above), a Tenebrae head, a pharaoh's head and a fish head for Emil. As of the moment, I'm unsure of just how much of the original PAL content will be carried over and how much of it will actually be "new."
Lastly, Famitsu has revealed one more of the illustrations to be included in the Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack Famitsu DX Bundle.
We'll update this post once scans are available. If you're still interested in the scans, we've added them here in our gallery. It has a few things not in the Famitsu screenshots, like some of the cut-ins:
