Nihon Falcom’s RPG series Ys is continuing its meandering journey over to PC piece-by-piece, with 2012’s Ys: Memories Of Celceta due to officially find its way from PlayStation Vita to PC in summer 2018. I’ve no experience with the series myself but people speak fondly of it and seem glad when more games come to PC so good, here’s some good news for such people. Me, all I need to know is that it’s set around a giant forest. Yes, good, thank you. Publishers Xseed livestreamed almost two hours of the game on Friday so here, watch: (more…)
Nihon Falcom s flashy slashy JRPG Ys Seven [official site] is now out on PC, eight years after it first arrived on the PSP. It’s largely the same game as the handheld version upscaled for bigger screens, just with a refreshed translation from the Japanese original. It should run at 60fps at a variety of resolutions and it supports both keyboard-and-mouse and controllers. All good stuff.
You’ve got control of a three-man party exploring a large world that offers a 20+ hour main campaign. The focus is on combat and, unlike some JRPGs, there’s no split between exploring and fighting. I watched publisher Xseed Games stream a bit of it a few months ago and the combat looked smooth and satisfying.
Nihon Falcom’s JRPG Ys Seven [official site] will hit PC on 30th August, publishers XSeed Games have announced. The port of the 2009 PlayStation Portable original is a “full upscaled HD” version and will feature lots of resolution options, new achievements and a refreshed translation from the Japanese version, XSeed say.
A PC version of the 2009 PSP action-RPG Ys Seven, updated "with all the features of a modern PC release," was announced last month with a vague release window of "summer." Today publisher Xseed made it more specific by nailing down the launch date to August 30.
Ys Seven on the PC will feature HD graphics running at 60 fps, controller support, and achievements, trading cards, and cloud saves on Steam. It will also offer "revised localization to ensure players receive the most immersive gaming experience possible." And of course there's a save-the-world story in there, too.
"The people of Altago are still distrustful of foreigners, and the land is crawling with monstrous creatures who are invulnerable to standard steel, rendering Adol’s tried and true arsenal of weapons from games past ineffective. Forced to rearm and retrain from scratch—and to prove his worth to this new country’s somewhat xenophobic populace—Adol takes up a king’s quest to explore a nearby set of ruins, only to find himself embroiled in a high-stakes game of appeasing ancient dragons and saving the world... yet again."
Ys Seven will be available on Steam, GOG, and Humble for $25/£20/€25. Details about the game (but not a preorder option, that's for the PSP version, and also it doesn't work anymore) can be found at worldofys.com.
