Small publisher XSeed recently signed a deal with Falcom to publish in the US three games in the Y’s series (Ys Seven, Ys: The Oath in Felghana, and Ys I & II Chronicles) and three titles from the Legend of Heroes series. I hope this works out for XSeed but it does seem like financial suicide. Bringing out six very niche games to a system that is dead in the US is very brave but admirable since otherwise these games would never have received an English language translation. I thought splashing out on the Premium Edition in this case was worth it because, you know, every little helps and I hope it works out for them.
Anyway here’s what you get in the Premium Edition:
- Y’s Seven game
- Oversized cloth map of the world that Y’s is set in
- 60 page Y’s artbook
- And most important of all, Y’s Seven music selection.
So if you have any interest in owning one of the best RPGs of the year I suggest you import the Premium Edtion. It’s only a fiver more expensive than the standard edition and about the same price as what you would pay for a PSP game in the shops here.
