Ys Book I & II Released in US Next Week
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
After Hudson updated their VC site with their planned upcoming TurboGrafx-16 releases for America, and all games except Ys Book I & II had specific dates, people were assuming it would be released last. This has turned out to not be true however, as it's being released before the now remaining two games with dates (Star Parodier and Break In), meaning that it's coming out on Monday!
Ys Book I & II is really a must-play if you're even a little bit of an RPG fan. Consider the fact it was originally released in 1989 and then look at its features - CD-quality music, voice acting, anime cutscenes (There's not too much animation in them, it's mostly still images), and most obviously - The fact that it is basically two games in one! Many people say that the game was 5 or 6 years ahead of its time, and they're completely right.
Coupled with the release of Samurai Shodown II on Monday, we think this is one of the best weeks the US has ever had. Not downloading either game is doing yourself a huge disservice!
