Bandai has shipped its PlayStation Portable RPG, The Legend of Heroes: A Tear of Vermillion, to North American retailers. The game is rated "T" for Teen and has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $39.99.
A Tear of Vermillion is the second title in what is known as the Gagharv Trilogy in Japan, following The White Witch and preceding Cagesong of the Ocean. Bandai's latest, however, is the first game of the trilogy to see release outside of Japan, in addition to being the first traditional roleplaying game for the PSP.
