Fans of the Japanese style role-playing game, particularly the long-running Ys series, have XSEED Games to thank for bringing a long list of developer Falcom's games stateside, breathing new life into the PSP.

XSEED has inked a deal with Nihon Falcom to bring Ys Seven, Ys: The Oath in Felghana, Ys I & II Chronicles and The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky trilogy to North America. The first of those games will be the first in the list, with Ys Seven planned for a release on these shores some time this summer. Late summer, that is.

Ys Seven is the first game in the decades old series built specifically for the PlayStation Portable, so expect it to take advantage of everything that little handheld has to offer.
