Skies of Arcadia, the JRPG from Overworks, is reportedly getting the remaster treatment. The information comes via the XboxEra Podcast that aired on Sunday night.
Initially released in 2000 for the Sega Dreamcast, Skies of Arcadia was a game that focused on world exploration. The game saw you play as an air pilot named Vyse who, along with his friends, works to stop the Vuluan Empire from getting ancient weapons to destroy the world.
The gameplay focuses on traditional JRPG elements with turn-based combat and experience points for leveling up your characters. Exploration occurs via foot and through the air, as the name would suggest.
After the Dreamcast went under in the early 2000s, the game was launched on Nintendo GameCube in 2002.
Insider Gaming did happen to come across an image from the apparent remaster, but we’ve yet to confirm its 100% legitimacy. So, please, take the photo with a grain of salt for now.
There was no other information about the possible remaster in the podcast. Insider Gaming has reached out to Sega, the game’s original publisher, for comment on the report. Should a response be received, the story will be updated accordingly.
