Tales of Symphonia is most popular 'Tales' game in the west, producer believes

Tales of Symphonia producer Hideo Baba believes that the 2003 Gamecube RPG was the best-received 'Tales' game to date in Western markets.

Baba discussed the game's success in an interview with Destructoid and said, "I believe the success of Tales of Symphonia has multiple factors to it, the first being that it was the first Tales title that was rendered in 3D polygons, so we believe that was a huge component to its success.

"Another huge component was that we had a lot of support from Nintendo, so that allowed us to reach out to a broader audience that we weren’t able to reach before."

Elsewhere Baba said that should the Wii U's popularity increase he'd like to see the series brought to Nintendo's home console in some form. Would you like to see this happen?
