Langrisser And Ys III Wander On To PlayStation Network In Japan

h1Hudson is fueling PlayStation Network with a steady stream of PC-Engine classics. On February 16, Langrisser: Descendants of Light will be available as a PSP and PS3 compatible digital download for just 600 yen ($7).


Ys III: Wanderers from Ys (which was later re-imagined as Ys: The Oath from Felghana), Shockman, and the horizontal scrolling shooter Aldynes will be available next week too. While a hard to find SuperGrafx game and 2D action game only cost 600 yen ($7) a piece, Ys III commands a premium 800 yen ($9.50) price tag.


Starting this year, Hudson began releasing TurboGrafx-16 games on PlayStation Network in North America. It’s unclear if this trend will continue since Hudson’s North American branch is sadly closing their doors.

  • This would be awesome if this lead to the Langrisser series being brought over the PSN in the west (I quite enjoyed Der Langrisser on the SNES).

  • Already got the awesome JPSN releases of Langrisser 1&2 and 4&5, might get this too just because I love the series so much

    Loved playing Langrisser on megadrive and saturn. Too bad the series is somewhat deaded now :(
