Katz' Village is an town in both Tales of Eternia and Tales of Symphonia known for its hidden locations and related sidequests. In both games, the village is populated entirely with Katz, a species that are similar to humans in cat costumes. In Tales of Eternia, Katz' Village is located within a mountainous area in the world of Celestia. In Tales of Symphonia, Katz' Village is found on an island in the northern part of Sylvarant. Both locations are accessible only with a flying vehicle.
Tales of Symphonia
While this place is not required for the group to visit, it is part of a sidequest in which a boy in the slums of Meltokio has a dying uncle who wants to see a Katz in person before passing away. Genis Sage agrees to get a Katz to come even though the boy had tried with little success. After the group attempts to talk to the Katz in the mart, the Katz refuse to see the boy and tell Genis to talk to the mayor in their hometown. The mayor of Katz' Village tells the party the boy's uncle hunted Katz for research purposes many years ago and gives Genis a Katz outfit to wear. Genis returns to the boy and his uncle while wearing this outfit. A real Katz appears before the group, expressing a sign of happiness before disappearing. The boy goes on to explain that he and his uncle have been dead for a long time—that they were merely ghosts. They reveal that Genis and the Katz were the only ones who could see them, and Genis receives the title "Katz Katz Katz", which allows him to use the Katz outfit as a costume.
Katz' Village has a large selection of goods considering the passive nature of the Katz population, most likely acquired through the trade and barter services that the Katz are well-known for practicing. This is the only place in Sylvarant where "Lemon Gels" and "Pineapple Gels" are sold outside of dungeons. It is also one of the few places to sell the expensive and rare "Miracle Gel". This place also sells a unique piece of equipment known as the "Katz Mittens".
Tales of Rebirth
In Tales of Rebirth, there is a minor settlement called Rabbitz Village that functions similarly. Located off Callegea's northern landmass that extends from its eastern continent, Rabbitz Village is a small, isolated island that resides near the icy region. The village is populated entirely by Rabbitz, which are analogous to Katz and the Turtlez from Tales of Graces.
Tales of Graces
In Tales of Graces, there is a place known as Katz Korner, which is based on a small theme park and inhabited mainly by Katz, although an old man also lives there. To access the village, the group must talk to every cat in the world and feed them. Once done, talking to any cat will allow the group to teleport to Katz Korner and access its inn requests. Save files with completed storylines allow access to Katz Korner's "Museum" version, where the group can view all the animated cutscenes, skits, voice files, soundtrack files, and other similar content the player has seen.
- Tales of Symphonia is the only game that renders an apostrophe in the title of the village, as Tales of Eternia does not, and the variants from Tales of Rebirth and Tales of Graces, including the more plot-related Turtlez HQ, are all rendered without apostrophes.
