Nihon Falcom has announced that a re-release of the original Ys III: Wanderers from Ys is available via Japanese retailer Beep Shop. Just like the original game, these floppy disks work on the PC-88SR and arrive in 3.5-inch and 5-inch versions. Both iterations cost ¥9,680. Shipments are expected to occur during December 2022, and it can ship internationally, though certainly at an increased cost.
For those unaware, Wanderers from Ys is the original version of Ys III from 1989, which eventually received a remake under a far more recognizable name, Ys: The Oath in Felghana.
