Square Enix: Vagrant Story to Hit PSN on December 22, 2009
Today Square Enix announced that their classic RPG adventure, Vagrant Story, is set to hit Sony's PlayStation Store across European and PAL territories just in time for the holidays on December 22, 2009.
Priced at €5.99, Vagrant Story originally gained critical acclaim on its launch receiving a full 40/40 from Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu.
Long famed for its dark narrative, unique battle system and atmospheric 3D world it has since been regarded as a true RPG classic.
To quote Square Enix's description for the title: "As the VKP's (Valendia Knights of the Peace) elite Riskbreaker, Ashley Riot, you must pursue a group of cultists into a deserted city of Lea Monde in an attempt to rescue the kidnapped son of a Valendian dignitary. But all is not as it seems, and everything you once believed will soon be called into question as you contend not only with the cultists, but rival political factions, the city's restless fallen, and your own dark memories."
Larry Sparks, Vice President of Brands for the PAL Region of Square Enix Ltd. comments, "Vagrant Story is one of only a handful of games to be honoured with Famitsu's highest possible score and it's a great pleasure to be releasing the game in Europe.
For the first time in years Vagrant Story will be easily accessible to original fans and new gamers wanting to experience a true classic."
Man!! Square are not wasting time. they are porting the best of their classic lineup for the PS3. but to be honest this is truly an amazing game.
I hope that they try to do the same thing with their PS2 games. I'm not sure if it is possible, but playing FFX again will be nostalgic. and it would be great if Konami did the same thing and try to get Zone of the Enders back.
