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.
