Summary of 'Ys I & II Chronicles':
'Ys I & II Chronicles' is a "re-imagining" of the first two games in the venerable RPG series. The two games first came out in the 1980s, and this compilation retains the old-school rpg look, while updating the translation and offering ways to customize the gameplay. There are four levels of difficulty, allowing both new and old players to pick a setting they're comfortable with, and three different soundtracks are included--the original, a newly-recorded instrumental, and a synth version previously only available in the 90s Japanese PC release.
If you're interested in this game, you might want to think about getting it when it first releases in February, as all retail launch edition copies will come packed with a free soundtrack CD (though if you don't like hair metal music, you can probably skip this).
