Sega of America has announced that Skies of Arcadia Legends will ship for the GameCube in January 2003. The game is being called the "definitive version" of Skies of Arcadia, which was originally released for the Dreamcast. Skies of Arcade Legends features several hours of new gameplay chronicling the main characters' back stories and a refined battle system.
"One of the first RPGs available for the Nintendo GameCube, Skies of Arcadia Legends delivers an epic, engaging story, brilliant play mechanics, and stunning next-gen graphics," said Rich Briggs, senior product manager at Sega of America. "Whether you've played Skies of Arcadia and have been wondering how Vyse received the scar on his face, or you missed the original Dreamcast version, Skies of Arcadia Legends is the must-own 'director's cut' of this soon-to-be-classic adventure."
