Did You Know?


This game was released/re-released/remade a total of three times, originally for the Super Famicom, a second time for the Playstation, and the most recent time for the Gameboy Advance. Much of the controls and such were reworked for later versions (very similar to later games in the series, such as Tales of Destiny, in fact.) See more »

Crazy Credits

Both the SNES and GBA versions have a quote, by Edward D. Morrison, at the start of their intro, which is spoken aloud as well as printed. Morrison is the name of one of the NPCs who helps you on your quest. See more »

Alternate Versions

The SNES version has a blue and pink outfit for the two healers, instead of the correct white one. All other instances of the outfit, including in a illustration in the intro of the same version, have the correct outfit. It is unknown why. See more »

User Reviews

This game is indeed a classic.
8 September 2006 | by ZeroRaijinSee all my reviews

It's kinda funny that the first game in the "Tales of" series that hit any country outside of Japan was Tales of Destiny for Playstation, seeing as how this game is just as advanced, if you ignore that high resolution cut scenes and music are present in the other games. I highly recommend downloading the fan-translated ROM of the SNES version of this game, rather than getting the dubbed version, released not too long ago on Game Boy Advanced (the dubbing is atrocious, and they replaced the intro with some crappy little jingle). This Winter, Tales of Destiny is going to be re-released on PS2 in Japan. Hopefully we'll be seeing it hit stateside, seeing as how it's just as great as Tales of Phantasia. For anyone who wants to play an RPG that actually has some life to it, that isn't the same old stale crap, I highly recommend this series.
