Rumor: Skies of Arcadia 2 in the Works

N-Europe are massive fans of the Dreamcast epic Skies of Arcadia, the directors cut of which was released on the GameCube with the subtitle Legends. And despite being largely a port, it was probably the finest RPG on the system (Tales of Symphonia fans, form an orderly queue).

Anyhoo, the fairly reliable German Sega blog Sega ON are reporting from a trusted source of theirs that a sequel is a "definite", and will be unveiled at this Autumn's Tokyo Games Show. N-Europe don't want to raise your hopes unnecessarily, but this was a blog that was one of the very first with all those Sonic Unleashed rumours, and gamers all know how they panned out.

that would be great... I still play the original on Dreamcast

(though I think the best Dreamcast RPG was easily Grandia II)

I agree, Skies of Arcadia was one of the best RPGs ever in my opinion. I have read previously that Skies was made by the old Phantasy Star team. Although I still am waiting for Phantasy Star 5.

Grandia 2 was also fantastic. If Sega were to realease a new Skies of Arcadia I have no doubt it would be excellent.

Skies of Arcadia is a fantastic game. One of the best RPG's I've ever played.

What platform would they make it for though..?

I hope this is true I loved Eternal Arcadia or asit is called over in the US Skies of Arcadia. I think a PS3 and 360 version would look great so I hope to see a second one soon.

It might just have been fan-service but since Aika and Vyse appear as playable characters in the PS3 PRG game "Valkyrie of the Battlefield" (Valkyrie Chronicles) they may be hinting at a new sequel to the game.

And since Sega has been pushing the Canvas engine pretty hard and the art direction for VC seems very similar to the old designs on Skies of Arcadia....well....they might be telling us something.

I just hope that it comes to the PS3. I need some more airship duels...like....now.
