Nihon Falcom, the esteemed game developer, has unfurled a fresh trailer for Ys X: Nordics, the upcoming gem in its renowned Ys RPG series. This trailer takes center stage in introducing the game’s vibrant cast while unveiling novel gameplay facets, encompassing maritime exploration, enthralling ship-to-ship clashes, and innovative movement mechanics.
Mark your calendars, as the game is set to grace Japanese shores on September 28, adorning PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch platforms. The limited edition of the game bundles an exclusive mini soundtrack, a digital armor accoutrement, a sleek pin badge, an artistic card ensemble, and a backpack featuring the emblematic Adol Christin.
Within the game’s narrative tapestry, an archipelago nestled in Obelia Bay hosts the seafaring Normans, casting players into the role of the protagonist, Adol Christin. As Adol navigates this realm, an enigmatic new adversary, the “Griegers,” nefarious undying revenants, emerge to torment humanity.
Novel combat modes enliven the gameplay experience: “Solo Mode” grants mastery over one character with seamless auxiliary support, while “Combination Mode” empowers simultaneous control of two protagonists. The game’s allure extends to its seafaring scope, as players commandeer a traversable ship to plumb the expanses of the sea and archipelago, engaging in riveting ship-to-ship confrontations.
Recalling its precursor, Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, which debuted in September 2019 for PS4 in Japan, NIS America subsequently ushered the title to North American and European audiences in February 2021. Expanding its reach, the game voyaged to Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam in July 2021, followed by its PS5 debut on May 9 in North America and May 12 in Europe.
