As a young Buddhist monk in China, you've never had much cause for adventure in your sedentary life. Your life becomes very exciting when Lady Kannon, one of heaven's six guardians, suddenly contacts you. Journeying through immense 3D maps, you'll meet up with a host of amazing personalities in your search for the remaining five guardians of heaven. The object of the game is to bring the entire group to India; you'll need all of the magic, weaponry, and reflexes you can drum up.

Based on a popular Chinese myth, Saiyuki, is one of the last great strategy/ RPG's to appear on the PSX. With gameplay similar to Final Fantasy Tactics, Saiyuki tells the story of Sanzo as he makes his way from China to India and back. Both strategy and RPG fans will appreciate Saiyuki's incredible balance between story and gameplay. You'll recruit supporting characters throughout the game, which will help mold your character's skills and abilities.
