Currently Playing Kaze No Densetsu Xanadu aka The Legend of Xanadu
Just started this game a couple days ago, and WOW. How did the US get the short end of the stick on this great game? It has elements of the Ys series for the overhead areas, and switches to gorgeous side scrolling levels for the boss fights (ala Y's 3). In between areas, there are animated cut scenes, very well done, and the music is catchy, and fitting.
Currently in the 3rd area of the game, and getting more, and more addicted the longer I play. Given my complete lack of Japanese knowledge, it can be a bit slow going, and the stories mostly lost on me, but still very worth a try for anyone on the fence.
