Ys X Nordics Teases New Song, “Those Who Live on the Distant Sea” 

Developer Nihon Falcom has teased another new track for their upcoming action JRPG Ys X Nordics, which, when translated, reads “Those Who Live on the Distant Sea.”

The song is presented alongside a brief highlight of new Ys 35th-anniversary merchandise, Mamezara, miniature plates used in Japan for beans. The new track sounds like it would fit the beginning of the adventure, or it may be used while traversing the open sea with Adol’s boat.

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.

You can listen to the Ys X Nordics track, “Those Who Live on the Distant Sea,” below:

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.
