- XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz
has announced today that Ys Seven Comes to Sony's PSP and PSPgo handheld consoles in August, 2010.
To quote: Ys Seven will be the first game released as part of the XSEED/Falcom partnership (aka the GREATEST TEAM-UP EVER), and is currently scheduled to ship on August 17th, 2010.
In North America, three versions of the game will be available: the UMD version ($29.99), the PSN download version (also $29.99), and of course, the fabulous limited edition box-set version ($49.99), which will include the game on UMD, a ludicrously gorgeous cloth map of Europe (the Ys series Europe, which is pronounced "eh-ROH-pay"), a one-disc "Ys Seven Musical Selections" CD, and a 60+ page art book containing various works from Ys Seven, Ys: The Oath in Felghana, and Ys I & II (as well as a brief cameo by some Ys VI characters).
Ys Seven will also be available in Europe, but only as a PSN download, and I'm afraid the price is yet to be determined. Sorry, European
fans! (Europan fans?)
Now, the all-important question: Why should you buy the game?
Well, how about because it's AWESOME?!?! Seriously, if you've never played a Falcom game before, you're about to be blown away by this...
