US Cube reaches for the Skies

“Definitive version” of Arcadia gets a US release date

Sega's Skies of Arcadia Legends will appear on the US GameCube in January 2003, according to the publisher. Legends expands upon the relatively successful Dreamcast original and takes it to "Director's Cut" status according to Sega's senior product manager Rich Briggs. As well as rehashing the epic tale of a young Air Pirate on a quest spanning six worlds, Legends will introduce hours of new gameplay chronicling the back-story of the game's main characters. The battle system is also said to have been refined. We haven't heard any news of a European release date at the time of writing, so interested parties might want to consider an import.
