About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Video games developer and publisher Namco Hometek Inc. announced today that its popular role-playing game, Tales of Symphonia, has shipped to North American retail outlets.

Developed by Namco Tales Studio Ltd. in Japan, Tales of Symphonia is now poised to send players on an epic quest exclusively for Nintendo GameCube.

"The wait is finally over--Tales of Symphonia is here," said Rod Nakamoto, executive vice president of research and development at Namco Hometek Inc. "Tales of Symphonia clearly establishes a new standard for the role-playing genre of games, and we are certain fans of previous Tales iterations will be delighted with this next journey."

The latest addition to Namco's popular Tales series of games, Tales of Symphonia gives players full control of characters by way of its unique real-time battle system, which allows for the execution and combination of multiple special attacks and magic spells.
