Ys Franchise Drastically Discounted on PC via Steam; Adventures En Masse

Developer Nihon Falcom alongside publishers XSEED and NIS America, have discounted the entirety of the former’s library on PC via Steam. Of those titles on sale, the Ys franchise is drastically discounted for varying prices, all listed below:

With the exception of Ys IX: Monstrum Nox and Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, which conclude their sales on May 8, 2022, the rest of the entries are on sale until May 12, 2022.

If you’re yearning to give this series a shot, check out our beginner’s guide for getting into the series. Further, the list I provided for the discounted games above is the chronological story order for those curious about that.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana was announced to be receiving a native PlayStation 5 release later this Fall.

This entry kickstarted the series’ popularity in the West during its initial Vita and PS4 release. It contains a memorable narrative, addictive combat, a stellar soundtrack, multiple difficulty levels, a plethora of side content, and much more. It’s a definite must-play, and if you have a PS5, you should be on the lookout for it when it launches later this year. View our coverage regarding its new inclusions.
