Ys: Book I & II bound for the virtual console in North America


ysiiius.jpgLast month, Hudson released Ys: Book I & II on the Japanese Virtual Console. For 800 Wii Points ($8) you get two Ys games, which is a bargain. Hudson has not confirmed the Turbo Grafx-16 CD game for North America, but the ESRB gave it an “E” rating. I would say chances are good we’re getting it in the future.


I spent some with the re-release and the games feel antiquated. But seeing Adol body slam enemies instead of using his sword brings back good memories. If you have the patience for old school action RPGs this package is for you and it's a good deal considering $8 is substantially cheaper than the price of the individually sold DS remakes.
