Ys Book I and II announced for the DS

Apparently one of the most heralded (but unloved) action RPG franchises of all time is coming to Nintendo DS.  If your familiar with Ys Book I and II for the Turbo Grafx-16 on the virtual console then you will be familiar with this. Legacy of Ys: Books I & II delivers the same game play and story as that except in a nice looking enhanced package.

The two stories will be presented in 3D for the first time (in the U.S.), as well as feature remixed music scores, optional touch screen controls, and local wireless multiplayer for up to four people (not to shabby).

The game will be released on February 10, 2009 and is being published by Atlus. Hit the jump to see some screens.

Note: If you haven’t picked up Ys Books I and II for the Turbo Grafx-16, which features nice voice acting, then I suggest you do.
