The good news: Atlus recently announced that every copy of their upcoming DS title Legacy of Ys: Books I & II will contain a soundtrack, with both the game and soundtrack packed into a collectible box. The bad: the game is delayed for a couple of weeks, to February 24th. I don’t know anymore, Atlus, all these up’s and down’s…I just don’t know if I can keep doing this.
Let the spoils persist, Faithful! We’re bringing back Atlus Spoils in 2009, and first title to get some love is Legacy of Ys! What was once a pre-order bonus soundtrack CD is now packed in with each and every launch unit of the game. The whole package is boxed, making for that oh-so-collectible vibe that’s impossible to resist.
You’re wondering, “What’s the catch?” We’re glad you wondered. Alas, we’ll be delaying Legacy of Ys a couple weeks, a trifle really, to beef up the game’s launch. It’s going to be a harder year for buying every game you want, Faithful, and we want to make sure that any of you who invest in an Atlus product feel like you’re getting your full money’s worth, beyond just the action RPG awesomeness that awaits you inside this particular package.
As for what folks are saying about Ys, positive previews are starting to roll in. Mark Bozon of IGN.com writes, “Legacy of Ys: Books I & II are surprisingly addictive, and a testament to a very different RPG era.”
Legacy of Ys: Books I & II. Now a premium boxed release. Each and every launch copy will now include the bonus soundtrack CD, regardless of where it’s purchased. Coming to retailers across North America on February 24th.
