news Ys X: Nordics Announced For Nintendo Switch, Launching In 2023
Image: Nihon Falcom Corporation We've got some breaking news to share with action RPG fans. At Falcom's annual meeting of shareholders today, the company announced Ys X: Nordics
would be coming to the Nintendo Switch in Japan next year (thanks, Gematsu). Ys X: Nordics will celebrate the 35th anniversary of the series. It takes place in the northern sea
Obelia Bay, made up of countless islands "big and small", and stars the young adventurer Adol Christin as the game's protagonist. Here's some additional PR: After completing his
adventures in the Ancient Kingdom of Ys, young adventurer Adol Christin encounters a maritime people known as “Normans” in this new land. Who are they? And who are the
“Griegers,” immortal undead who attack humans…? The battle system used up until Ys IX: Monstrum Nox has been drastically revamped! The new “Cross Action” system allows
the player to fight using two modes according to the situation. In the speedy “Solo Mode,” the player controls one character with the help of automatic attacks and support from
their partner. In “Combination Mode,” the player can simultaneously control a series of actions for both characters to take on formidable foes in back-and-forth combat.
Additionally, Ys X: Nordics allows you to control a ship for the first time in the series. Explore vast oceans using sea maps as your guide and engage in naval battles against
enemy ships in this new feature that adds to “the joy of adventure” that the series is known for. Other new systems include the special ability “Mana Action,” which
significantly expands the degree of freedom on fields and in dungeons. Images: Nihon Falcom Corporation Image: Nihon Falcom Corporation Along with this announcement, Falcom also
announced it was working on a HD remaster of Ys: The Oath in Felghana. It will be officially titled Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana and launches on Switch next Spring in Japan.
This definitive edition of the 2010 PSP title will come with voiceovers for the protagonist and event scenes in the game, remastered graphics and sound, the ability to swap between
visuals (classic and refined), multiple sound settings, a high-speed mode and beginning friendly features. Images: Nihon Falcom Corporation The Ys series originally started out
life in the late 80s with the first game and since then has received a number of follow-ups. The most recent entry in the series Ys IX: Monstrum Nox launched on the Switch in July
last year. Check out our review: If we hear anything about a western release, we'll let you know. Would you be interested in either of these upcoming Switch games? How below.
