Ys X Nordics Information Broadcast Premiering Tomorrow
Developer Nihon Falcom and Japanese outlet Dengeki have announced that the latter will host a new information broadcast for the former’s upcoming action JRPG, Ys X Nordics. Specifics on what to expect aren’t stated, but perhaps we’ll finally see a fleshed-out gameplay trailer. It’s pretty strange how a release date was announced without such a video.
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.
