Legacy of Ys: Books I & II: screens, soundtrack pre-order bonus

We recently told you that Atlus has overhauled the DS game Legacy of Ys: Books 1 & 2 for the US, putting both games on one cartridge and adding a new localization, not to mention new graphics and music. This heaping helping of RPG goodness is coming to us on February 3, 2009. Today we have some new screenshots and news of a cool pre-order bonus.

Atlus sends word that pre-order customers at participating retailers will be able to nab the limited edition Legacy of Ys: Books I & II soundtrack CD, which will feature selected tracks from both Ys I and II. They were even kind enough to pass along some sample tracks.

Anyone sporting the RPG badge will know that the Ys series is famous for its music. The games’ soundtracks and their subsequent CD soundtrack releases helped kick off the high-quality game soundtrack movement back in the day, stepping things up from internal synth sounds to fully recorded soundtracks.
