Ys Japanese Survey Reveals What Age Fans Want to See Protagonist Adol Christin be in Next Game

Japanese outlet Dengeki recently published the results of various polls they held regarding the Ys series to celebrate the franchise’s 36th anniversary. These results were accumulated at some time last year from an unspecified number of participants.

The final question asked fans what age they would want series protagonist Adol Christin to be in the next game. The following results were revealed, in descending order from most voted to least.

  1. 25

  4. 20
  5. 27
  6. 35
  7. 40
  8. 63

Some voices from fans are translated below via our team’s Ryuji:

  • 22 years old: I want to see a story that takes place between Ys VIII and VI.
  • 24 years old: I’m curious to see where they [Adol and Dogi] went after leaving Balduq.
  • 28 years old: I want to see what happens as he reaches his thirties.
  • 63 years old: I’m curious about why he went missing.


Ys X Nordics 5

Ys X Nordics will occur between Ys II and Memories of Celceta, making it the new third canonical entry in Adol Christin’s adventure logs. The gameplay has undergone a significant shakeup, with there only being two playable characters this time around.

Special maneuvers can be unlocked via story scenes and exploration, allowing for environmental interaction. Further, in solo mode, the character you’re not controlling performs actions judged by their own discretion. Adol will be controlling a ship for combat and island hopping, too.

Unused Ys Seven concepts are being utilized in this outing, too. Ys X Nordics will allow players considerable explorative freedom, enabling naval travel with a recruitable crew and ship combat.

Ys X Nordics will launch in Japan for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch on September 28, 2023.

Ys X Nordics will launch in Traditional Chinese and Korean for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch on September 28, 2023.
