Well, if you were on the fence about buying it, hopefully this will help sway your decision a bit. According to Atlus, they are going to be giving away free soundtrack CD's of Ys 1 and 2 upon pre-ordering the game.
From the email:
"As if there weren't enough reasons to purchase Legacy of Ys: Books I & II, Atlus is offering one more (and just as a refresher, the others include a new localization, remastered graphics and music, optional touch screen controls, multiplayer, and much more):
Pre-orders at participating retailers will secure a copy of a limited edition Legacy of Ys: Books I & II soundtrack CD, which will feature selected tracks from both Ys I and II.
Epic in melody and arrangement, the Ys Books I & II soundtrack has long been considered one of the greatest video same scores ever created. As relevant today as ever, the freshly arranged music CD still manages the same level of excitement and energy, and stand as a testament to true excellence in game music."
Even better, heres a link to some samples of whats to be found on the CD. Even though I haven't ever played a Ys game, I think come February 10th, I should give it a go.
