NIS America to bring Ys: Memories of Celceta to Europe
Ys: Memories of Celceta is part of Nihon Falcom’s Ys RPG series. The game was originally released in Japan on September 27, 2012 and is set to be released during holiday 2013 in North America.
The official press release has the following information about the game and key feature.
About the game:
In Ys: Memories of Celceta, developer Falcom revisits the land and characters of Japanese cult favourite Ys IV for its first ever European debut. This re-envisioning of the fourth instalment in the Ys series takes a brand new approach, changing and framing the story of Ys IV within an all-new tale of conspiracy, deception, and mystery. Featuring an updated version of the party-based battle system from Ys SEVEN, as well as the largest and most varied overworl din series history, Ys: Memories of Celceta brings a greater sense of adventure to the Ys universe than has ever been seen before.
- Experience the Land of Celceta in English for the Very First Time – Its first ever release in Europe, Ys: Memories of Celceta will take players on a new adventure in never-before-seen locales within the Ys universe.
- Explore the Biggest Overworld in Ys Series History – Eclipsing all previous entries in the Ys series in both size and content, the overworld map metes out battle and exploration in equal measure. A robust mapping system with customizable waypoints and clear, detailed icons aid the journey through this mysterious new land.
- Adventure Forth with a Party of Allies – The party battle system from Ys SEVEN returns, but this time with a host of upgrades such as enhanced flash-guarding, a more versatile party AI, and unique abilities for party members to streamline encounters for fast and furious battle.
- Throw Down the Gauntlet in Boss Rush Mode – Boss Rush makes a comeback, pitting Adol and his companions against implacable foes to keep the challenge going well after the main story has been completed.
It seems like NIS America might have a rather busy 2014 with: DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (PS Vita), Demon Gaze (PS Vita), Hyperdimension Neptunia PP (PS Vita) and Mugen Souls Z (PlayStation 3) all getting released in 2014 too. I guess as a fan of Japanese made RPGs I’m going to have a busy 2014.
