The game came two days in EU after the North American launch, on PSN that is. Bless who ever made that happen.
I'm one of the people who are more interested in Ys: The Oath in Felghana than Ys 7. I totally forgot that I&II Chronicles were coming and wasn't sure what to expect, read the review here and decided to get it since it's the definitive version and both games are fairly short. I'm also very intrigued by the original battle system, I have no idea what to expect! And talking with monsters sounds like such a cool idea.
Will play it both with Tactics Ogre after completing Valkyria Chronicles 2, which should be finished by tomorrow. And that means me accidentally playing Ys games in chronological order since I've only tried Oath and haven't put time on it yet.
