this is a good start!
Ys isn't a bad series it's at same level at Star Ocean for me. Definitely keeping an eye on this.

@abzdiine - Ys for me is now on a higher level than Final Fantasy. This coming from someone who considered Squaresoft the best developers in gaming, ever. SquareEnix has really dropped the ball since then, so now when I need a good JRPG I know I can look forward to Ys games. (Gotta say though, FFXV has my hopes high with Nomura heading it.) Sure, Ys isn't even on the same level as Squaresoft's masterpieces, but at least they're consistent. I have yet to be disappointed by an Ys game. That's all I'm really trying to say here, lol.

PS2 is back again :D
It's like the last 8 years never happened, where was this crazy support during the PS3 era?
abzdiine  +   151d ago
every JRPG is on a higher level than FF nowadays. it's still below old squaresoft FF standards and that's why i put it in the same level as a Star Ocean, which is a very good JRPG series.

Next stop for Sony, a GRANDIA game! Please...

The Y's series was my favorite RPG series back in the day. It had real time combat and was the first, I know of, to have you return to previously visited towns and areas, and you could see the effects of what previous events did to those areas.
I wish X1 were doing better in the west so there maybe a chance of a port. As things are now, it is very unlikely. The series has never been on Xbox. Not even the very successful 360.

Lol hope you guys are happy now. I forgot who it was on this site that was doubting my claim about the RPG announcements coming in September.

Persona 5 made my life, and a new Ys is incredibly exciting.

Sony getting back to what makes them unique. Those JRPG roots.
TGS is shaping up to be more exciting than both E3 and Gamescom for PS fans.

Persona 5! woke up to amazing news!!!
Blastoise  +   151d ago
Memories of celceta rocked! Completed it twice. Will be getting this!
Snookies12  +   151d ago
Have you checked out Ys Origin, or Ys Seven? Those were my two favorites of the franchise! I don't think I've ever been disappointed by an Ys game though. At the very least, they're always really enjoyable games.

I loved Memories too. Had a great story I was not expecting. This looks like such a huge update too. Hopefully the Vita version won't be dumbed-down too much.

Hanso  +   151d ago

Once I saw SE logo I nearly cried, but it was Dragon Heroes. Still looks really cool though
izumo_lee  +   151d ago
Ys Celceta of Trees was an awesome game on the Vita. This will be just as great.

Framerate still a bit rough but being early in development it still looks good. More Adol the better.
kratoz1209  +   151d ago
So excited for this anyone have a link so i can re watch the trailer in HD
Inception  +   151d ago
I can't say no for new adventure with Adol and his waifus :3
illtornworld  +   151d ago
God yes a Legend of Dragoon 2 for both Vita and PS4! *passes out*
ndub317  +   151d ago
Please link to this information I would like to have me some of Legend of Dragoon 2
ndub317  +   151d ago
OMG gameing orgasm. I'm so excited I can't sleep. This is the best press conference I seen from Sony so far this year. Vita is getting support and I wanted to buy a ps4 right now.
illtornworld  +   151d ago
Oh we was just saying itd be amazing if Sony did announce Legend of Dragoon 2 lol. god all these games!
HeavenlySnipes  +   151d ago
The Ys games on the psp were fucking fantastic gameplay wise

I'd definitely buy this
Chaos_Raiden  +   151d ago
Day one buy for PS Vita version if it is being released in English. Will definitely get the PS4 version if it is good.
Inception  +   151d ago
Don't worry. So far the majority of Ys games got localized, unlike Legend of Heroes / Sen no Kiseki series.

So i'm sure Xseed will localize it just like they localized Ys Origins, Ys 1 & 2 chronicles, Ys Oath in Felghana, Ys Celceta, and Ys 7.
Wolfenstein51  +   151d ago
Ys Memories of Celceta = best Vita game ever. Currently playing YS seven - also very good. This is great news and being on PS4 will introduce more to this wonderful series. Also, playing Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky from Falcom and enjoying the hell out of it. The sequel is coming soon to PSP/PS Vita. Highly recommended.

This and Persona 5 makes me so glad I own a PS4 right now! The JRPG love returns!
tulholdren  +   149d ago
