- 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."
, 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."
