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).

Ys-2015
Not likely a Vita screen, but you get the picture.

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. 😉

      Well, at least Falcom isn’t as bad as Square “Please be excited!” Enix when it come to pre-release info lol. This will be a day 1 game for me. Or as close to day one as funds will allow!

    Are ys games stand alone or do you need to play others to know whats going on?

    • Kyle Wakeling

      There’s a lore that intertwines them (and Adol Christin is the main character in most, if not all), however I’ve only ever played Memories of Celceta for Vita and I understood perfectly what was going on.

      So stand alone, but lore/characters that link them.

        Cool thanks

      Other than ys 1 and 2 the other games are pretty much standalone with minor references that won’t hinder your experience with the game and its story at all. Also ys origins is the only game in the series that doesn’t feature adol as the main character.

      If you want you can dive into this new title when it releases but I suggest that you also play ys memories of celceta since its f**king amazing
