Vagrant Story out on PSP and PS3 this week [Update]

Did you know Vagrant Story was releasing for PSP and PS3 in Europe this week? We didn’t. And yet it’s true. It’s a crazy world we live in.

The dungeon-crawling RPG was first released in 2000, and is a bit of a classic. You’d do well to give it a waz.

Thanks, Spiral.

Update: Bad news. We’ve just been told by Square that the date – taken from the company’s newsletter – is actually wrong. The game’s coming to PSN soon, but not this week. We’ll let you know as soon as the correct date’s announced.

    I bet this’ll look great on the PSP!

    Shame I could never get on with it. It was a fabulous-looking game in its day.

    Wonderful game. Still has the best final line in a game intro ever. :)

    I’ll give this another go.
    I had this with my PS2. I got stuck early on and gave up.
    I think it deserves another chance.

    I never got to play it the first time round. Couldn’t find it in the shops. Quite looking forward to it.

    Absolutely wonderful game. Deserves a sequel, or even a remake.

    “Vagrant Story” is one of the best games I ever played.
    Spent more than 200 hours with this gem.
    Go get it, when available!

    @ Suikoden Fan

    But isn’t this is Square’s mistake, releasing the wrong date in their newsletter?

    Never played it. Going off the name though i’m guessing its about hobos?

    It’s about a “Riskbreaker” (some sort of elite military unit, think Soldier from FFVII) called Ashley Riot who has to hunt down and kill some dudes from an evil organisation in the ruins of an ancient city.

    It had an awesome combat system that Square would do well to revisit, and had a cool system for building weapons too.

    …and it has some of the best writing and most true-to-concept-art visuals of any game ever ever ever.

    It comes to something when the tipping point which will convince me to pick up a PSPGo is the prospect of having pocket friendly PSOne classics to play.
