On This Day In Gaming History!: April 18th, 2018

Arc the Lad Collection is a compilation of the Arc the Lad RPGs for the PlayStation. The games were localized by Working Designs. Plans to localize the games had been fostered by Working Designs since the late 1990s, but the compilation was not released in North America until April 18th, 2002.

The collection also features the documentary disc Making of Arc the Lad, which includes exclusive interviews with Victor Ireland, the president of Working Designs at that time. It comes with a leather-bound, 150-page, full-color instruction booklet. It also includes the Omake Box which features cardboard miniature standees of all 22 characters, four analog stick covers—one of Arc, one of Elc, one of Alec and one of the Arc the Lad emblem—and a memory card case featuring Arc’s face.
