Ys X Nordics Opens Physical Deluxe Edition Pre-Orders

Publisher NIS America has announced that pre-orders are now available for the Deluxe Edition of the Nihon Falcom action JRPG Ys X Nordics. Fans can now purchase this version of the title from Amazon for $59.99 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, or Nintendo Switch, which includes a digital mini soundtrack and physical mini art book alongside the base game.

A limited edition will become available from the NIS America store, though it has not been unveiled yet.

Ys X Nordics occurs after the events of Ys II but before the events of Ys: Memories of Celceta, making it protagonist Adol Christin’s new third canonical adventure. While traveling to Obelia Gulf with Dogi and Dr. Flair after Adol’s heroic debut in Esteria and the island of Ys, they encounter two factions, the Normans and the Griegr. The former are warriors who roam the seas, while the latter are a seemingly immortal threat. Adol and Karja Balta of the Norman tribe end up uniting their efforts to uncover the history of Obelia Gulf and the conflict taking shape within.

Ys X Nordics boasts new combat features, finally moving past the party system seen throughout Ys SevenYs: Memories of CelcetaYs VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, and Ys IX: Monstrum Nox. One of the new mechanics is the Cross Action System, letting players swap between controlling Adol and Karja at a moment’s notice. Further, their combative efforts can become conjoined as they build up the Revenge Gauge to dish out powerful attacks at the cost of slower movement speed.

Another new feature is Mana, enabling various avenues of movement throughout the world, including grappling, sliding, creating new platforms, and uncovering hidden treasures. Moreover, players can anticipate sailing with the Sandras, encouraging exploration of uncharted islands, and engaging in naval battles, which are all firsts for the Ys series.

Ys X Nordics will arrive in the West in Fall 2024 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store.
