Atlus Brings Smiles with Legacy of Ys Delay

Publisher Atlus has delayed the release of Legacy of Ys: Books I & II (DS) by two weeks in order "to magically transform [each launch copy] into a premium boxed release."

The boxed set will pack a soundtrack CD, originally intended as a pre-order bonus. Only first-run copies of the title will sport the fancy box and included soundtrack album.

"No one cares because boxes releases are awesome," reads the announcement. "Atlus quickly slips new release date of February 24th, then deftly avoids questions."

Based on the Nihon Falcom-developed PC originals, the Interchannel-helmed DS remake adds new graphics and multiplayer modes to the top-down hack 'n slash RPG.

    Atlus never ceases to impress me. They remind me a lot of Working Designs.
