Vagrant Story released on Japanese PSN

Square's PS1-era RPG, Vagrant Story, is a weird, brilliant little game. This under-appreciated gem had a number of interesting elements that enraptured those who played it when it was released in 2000 -- elements like deep weapon creation tools, a real-time battle system and a tragic, Shakespearian plot that few RPGs since have been able to emulate.

Folks living in Japan recently received a second chance to pick up the game -- it just got added to the Japanese PlayStation Store for the extremely reasonable price of ¥600 (about $6.25). We've contacted Square Enix to see if and when Vagrant Story (as well as a few other of Squeenix's PS1 Originals) will be making their way stateside.
