Ys X Nordics Famitsu Issue Tomorrow to Reveal New Characters & Potential Skill Tree

Famitsu has announced that their magazine releasing this week, number 1,803, the July 6 issue, will contain new information on the upcoming Nihon Falcom-developed action JRPG Ys X Nordics.

Fans can anticipate news on characters called the Griegers, a relationship chart, and new comments from Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo. Further, we’ll learn more about the gameplay systems.

The provided preview screenshots highlight the new characters and UI that seem reminiscent of a skill tree, but we don’t know for sure.

We’ll keep you updated on the information about this Famitsu issue as it releases tomorrow.

You can view the preview pages below:

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.
