Ys X Nordics Guide Book Announced for November 2023

Developer Nihon Falcom has announced that an official 100% guidebook of Ys X Nordics will launch on November 14, 2023, for ¥2,970. A breakdown of what to expect from this guide is below, translated by our team’s Ryuji:


A collection of official illustrations. Also included are rare event stills that can only be seen in the credits roll!


Includes basic knowledge of Mana Actions and Release Lines, as well as detailed information for advanced players, such as damage calculation formulas and more.


A chart summarizing the progression of the main story, as well as a map with information on enemies and treasure chest locations, and more. A must-read for those who want to proceed without missing anything!


Information that cannot be found in-game, such as specific details on how to obtain items, how long items are sold in the stores, enemy values, and more.

You can pre-order the Ys X Nordics guidebook via Rakuten Books or Amazon Japan.

Ys X Nordics occurs 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 utilized in this outing, too. Ys X Nordics allows players considerable explorative freedom, enabling naval travel with a recruitable crew and ship combat.
