Ys X Nordics Reveals New Trailer; Features In-Game BGM

Developer Nihon Falcom has somewhat sneakily unveiled a new trailer for their upcoming action JRPG Ys X Nordics on their official Twitter account, highlighting various gameplay scenarios and cutscenes. Plus, some in-game BGM is played, and it’s absolutely terrific.

Hopefully, the company uploads this trailer onto their official YouTube channel for higher quality.

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 view the new Ys X Nordics trailer below via Falcom’s official Twitter account:

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