Vagrant Story hits Western PSN on December 22

Classic Square Enix title Vagrant Story has today been announced for the European PSN store, due to arrive on December 22. Although the press release only mentions Europe, it's fairly safe to assume that the US PSN can be on the lookout for the game near that date as well. Excitement!

Vagrant Story is one of the Square Enix's most beloved properties, often hailed as one of the best PSOne games of all time. Already on the Japanese PSN, fans have been waiting for word of a Western release for quite some time. Fortunately, that wait is almost at an end. Just in time for Christmas, too!

So, show of hands -- who's planning to pick this one up when it drops? I know I'll be digging into my wallet.

Thursday 17th December/...Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces VAGRANT STORY®, the classic RPG adventure originally released in 2000, will be available to download from the PlayStation®Store on PlayStation®Network across PAL territories from 22nd December 2009, priced €5.99.

The original PS one® release secured immediate critical acclaim on its launch with Famitsu awarding it 40/40. Famed for its darkly compelling narrative, unique battle system, and atmospheric 3D world, VAGRANT STORY is a genuine classic.

As the VKP’s (Valendia Knights of the Peace) elite Riskbreaker, Ashley Riot, you must pursue a group of cultists into a deserted city of Leá Monde in an attempt to rescue the kidnapped son of a Valendian dignitary. But all is not as it seems, and everything you once believed will soon be called into question as you contend not only with the cultists, but rival political factions, the city’s restless fallen, and your own dark memories.

Larry Sparks, Vice President Brands PAL Region of Square Enix Ltd. comments, “VAGRANT STORY is one of only a handful of games to be honoured with Famitsu’s highest possible score and it’s a great pleasure to be releasing the game in Europe. For the first time in years VAGRANT STORY will be easily accessible to original fans and new gamers wanting to experience a true classic.”
VAGRANT STORY is available in all PAL countries where the PlayStation®Store is available.

I'm glad that the Amiibo stock situation got much better. Because Hasbro sure as hell didn't get the memo with their Marvel Legends figures. These two seem more elusive than a western Lucina Amiibo!

Seeing as how SMT is nowhere near as massively popular as Pokemon, this probably won't become a thing. Still, I'm curious about whoever's favorite demon/persona. Mine's probably Trumpeter! Without 'em, I would've never aced P4G on Very Hard.

Playing Tearaway Unfolded without glasses on makes it looks even prettier, gives it a glossy papercraft or almost dreamlike feel to it.
