Sega's Skies of Arcadia Legends is on its way to retailers...


Critically Acclaimed Role Playing Game Receives "Director's Cut"

SAN FRANCISCO - (January 28, 2003) - SEGA(R) of America, Inc. today

announced the release of the epic role-playing adventure "Skies of

Arcadia(TM) Legends" exclusively for the Nintendo GameCube(TM). The second

game in the already-classic franchise, "Skies of Arcadia Legends" delivers a

thrilling "director's cut" of the original "Skies of Arcadia" for the SEGA

Dreamcast (TM), which gaming enthusiast publication Electronic Gaming

Monthly has hailed as "one of the best RPGs ever."

An incredibly deep role-playing adventure, "Skies of Arcadia Legends" offers

more than forty hours of gameplay and spans six massive floating worlds,

each with their own local customs, habitats and enemies. Along the way,

gamers will interact with more than 300 characters, learn dozens of magic

spells and customize more than 70 devastating weapons. "Skies of Arcadia

Legends" also includes hours of new gameplay and backstory, a streamlined

new battle system and enhanced graphics for the Nintendo GameCube.

A swashbuckling adventure set in the vast azure skies, "Skies of Arcadia

Legends" casts gamers as Vyse, the heroic leader of a roaming band of Air

Pirates on a perilous quest to recover the six sacred Moon Stones of

Arcadia. Forged centuries ago by the mysterious Old Elders, the Moon Stones

are the keys to controlling the Gigas, a race of seemingly invincible

monsters that once almost destroyed the world. Now, the evil Valuan empire

seeks to assemble the Moon Stones and awaken the Gigas once again in their

quest for world domination. Vyse must assemble a crew of up to 22 for his

flying pirate ship and scour the skies of Arcadia on his quest to save the

world... and of course, find a little treasure.

"'Skies of Arcadia Legends' for the Nintendo GameCube is the must-have

'director's cut' of one of the best RPGs ever made," said Mike Fischer, vice

president, marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "With its vibrant story, faster

battle engine and hours of new content, "Skies of Arcadia Legends" is the

adventure Nintendo GameCube RPG fans have been waiting for!"

"Skies of Arcadia Legends" was developed by Overworks, the same studio that

created the original "Skies of Arcadia," which was released for the SEGA

Dreamcast video game console in late 2000.

"Skies of Arcadia Legends " is rated "T" for Teen and will be available at

retailers nationwide for an MSRP of $49.99.
