Further Tales of Eternia Confirmation
Tales of Destiny 2, aka Tales of Eternia, has gotten another confirmation as a US release from an unexpected source. In an e-mail from Tommy Tallarico, he stated that Namco had "decided to use a different source for the opening for Tales of Destiny 2." Tallarico was used for the American opening to Tales of Destiny in the US, as the Japanese version included a song with vocals. Tales of Eternia seems to be getting the same treatment, which is a shame since the Garnet Crow song used in the opening is nothing short of awesome.
