Atlus Discusses a New Level in Legacy of Ys: Books I & II

Venture into the never-explored Vageux-Vardette in Ys chapter I

Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today discussed the new level exclusive to Legacy of Ys: Books I & II for Nintendo DS. Marking the site of a massive disaster that occurred 700 years ago is the Vageux-Vardette, a huge crater in the center of Esteria. Though the nature of the disaster has since faded from memory, the area within its rim is considered sacred and to tread upon its ground is forbidden. Since the appearance of the Veil of Storms months before, horrible howls and screams have haunted the land. In past version of Ys, the Vageux-Vardette was only mentioned in passing, but now in the first book of Legacy of Ys, players will be able to explore this never-before-seen area, essentially a whole new level, confronting its new boss and finding an entirely new set of equipment.

"The Vageux-Vardette is one of the more eye-catching aspects of Ys I geography, and now Nintendo DS players can explore the natural expansion of the Ys universe in an exclusive new level," said Sam Mullen Project Lead of Legacy of Ys: Books I & II.

"With two games on one cartridge, a new multiplayer mode, a brand new localization, and the fact that each and every launch copy includes a soundtrack CD as a part of Atlus Spoils, there are already plenty of reasons to recommend Legacy of Ys to fans and newcomers alike." said Crystal Murray, PR Specialist at Atlus U.S.A., Inc. "Even for the most seasoned, long-time Ys fan, having a whole new area to explore and items to acquire enhances the overall experience."

As a continuation of the Atlus Spoils fan appreciation campaign, the finished North American launch will be available in a special boxed release, with a soundtrack CD featuring the game's famed score, the company's way of saying thank you for their continued support.

Legacy of Ys: Books I & II is now scheduled for release on February 24, 2009, with an MSRP of $34.99.
