While we still don’t know a whole lot, we’re starting to get a vague picture of what’s going on in this new Ys.
Thanks to this week’s Dengeki PlayStation release, it has been revealed that Falcom’s new Ys game is currently around 30% complete, and the game’s story is expected to take place right before Ys Seven (falling at some point between Ys V: Lost Kefin, Kingdom of Sand and Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim in chronology).
As reported earlier the setting for the title will be the “Goethe Sea” (an archipelago of South Gria), and because of this the sea is a strong part of the game’s overall theme.
You can also expect to see characters from other Ys games make an appearance, as well as some new game elements and systems when this one hits in 2015. On that note, we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more information releases. 😉
