New Ys X Nordics Trailer Introduces Key Cast

Publisher Clouded Leopard Entertainment has shared a new trailer for the upcoming Nihon Falcom-developed action JRPG Ys X Nordics, introducing some of the characters players will meet as Adol and Carja.

As a reminder, Clouded Leopard has a tendency to upload English marketing despite only publishing certain games in Chinese and Korean, with Ys X Nordics being no exception.

Aside from the two protagonists, Glenn Berge, Rosalind Rusveri, Cruz Carpent, Rafe Evelies, and Mirabel Asrad have been re-introduced following their initial introductions via trailer and website.

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.
