Back in 2008, Square Enix re-released Xenogears on the Japanese PlayStation Network's PlayStation Store, but since then the publisher has been silent until just recently announcing earlier this year that they would be release many of their classic PlayStation titles outside Japan. And it looks like Xenogears will be the first game on their list.
Xenogears is a turn-based RPG with a combat system that unifies the Square's Active Time Gauge feature as well as a newly created combo system. The game chronicles the adventures of a young reluctant warrior named Fei, who, after three years of residing in a small, remote farming village begins a long, tortuous quest to uncover his mysterious past. With no memory of his life before being placed in the village leader's care three years earlier, Fei makes a violent and tragic break with his peaceful life and sets out upon a journey. Along the way, not only will his own past be discovered, but he'll also unravel the mystery of the planet's past and humanity's role in relation to it.
Xenogears will hit the North American PSN this Tuesday, February 22 for $9.99.
