Sega of America has confirmed the release of Skies of Arcadia Legends in North America. The GameCube re-rerelease is scheduled to debut locally in January 2003.
The game casts players as the leader of a roaming band of Air Pirates on a
perilous quest spanning six diverse continents. In Skies of Arcadia Legends, gameplay features and story aspects not seen in the original Dreamcast version will become available.
"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. "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."
