Arc The Lad, Alundra Set For The PSN?
RPG fanatics have plenty of reasons to check out the library of PS1 classics on the PlayStation Network.
But there are still plenty more that could make an appearance. Two more have just been rated by the ESRB, as noted by Siliconera, and both would be fantastic additions to the PSN. The first is the strategy/RPG Arc the Lad, localized by Working Designs "back in the day," and the second is Alundra, the Zelda-like, puzzle-heavy action/RPG that required some definite patience and thought. There's no other reason for the ESRB to re-rate the titles again and most every time this happens, the games in question end up on the PSN at some point. They've listed both Arc the Lad and Alundra for the PS3 and PSP, and let's not forget that both games are already available on the Japanese PSN...so it's definitely time to get 'em over here. The only downside is you won't get one of those awesome Working Designs collectible boxes, which we had for the Lunar games and Arc the Lad.
For the record, Alundra remains one of my favorite games of all time. Strongly recommended to anybody who hasn't played it. We'll let you know if/when official announcements come down the pike.
