Being starved for a NEW rpg, I bought Tales of Symphonia. Loved Baten Kaitos so I thought I'd go with the same publisher (and creator I guess in this case). Never played a Tales game before.
A few questions I hope I can have answered.
1) Are these games stories linked at all, or all original like Final Fantasy.
2) The "Tales of Legendia" game coming in a couple weeks, who is doing the music?
3) Is the battle system similar in all the games?
4) For those that have played the FFXII demo, is the FFXII battle system at all similar to Tales of Symphonias. I know you encounter enemies the same way, and the demo vids I've seen sorta look similar to Tales of Symphonias system.
