Vagrant Story to arrive on the US PSN this week

Monday, 28th February 2011 21:41 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Vastly underrated PSOne classic Vagrant Story is hitting the US PlayStation Network at last. Ring out the bells.

According to the US PS Blog, the dungeon-crawling RPG will set you back $5.99 when it releases in this week’s console update.

It’s been a long time coming; we last heard the game was on its way in November. Of 2009.

A dark fantasy RPG with strangely Shakespearean localization and a deep, confusing system of weapon upgrade and customisation, Vagrant Story was released in 2000 to slow-burn critical acclaim and record-breaking sales. It’s the delicious brain child of Yasumi Matsuno, later of Final Fantasy XII and Tactics Ogre fame. Well worth a look. Let’s hear it for the EU PSN please, Square Enix.

Thanks, IGN.

    I already have the original version and I hacked it onto my PSP years ago but this is still an immediate purchase! Easily one of my favorite games ever. Even if I don’t play it, I would gladly pay for it again just so that maybe SE will get the hint and make a spiritual successor or just turn Matsuno loose to make some more masterpieces…

    Much appreciated fan service or shameless milking of starry eyed nostalgics?

    a great opportunity for those who haven’t played it back in the days perhaps.

    Worth it, if only to witness the best stone-cold one-liner ever rendered in a videogame (3:40 onwards)
