I've only finished up to Ys IV Memories of Celceta so I got a while to go. I only started playing the Ys games cause I was waiting for Trails To Azure to come out but now I've got to catch up and finish Cold Steel 3 and beyond. I don't know when I'll jump back to Ys. Hopefully soon but I didn't like Ys IV much. Ys origins and I+II were marvelous to me though.

It looks awesome. I don't like the fact that the story is moving backward by giving us a younger version of Adol just to appease to the children demographic of the Switch though.

Not only that, it happens right after Ys 1+2, so he isn't even called an adventurer yet.

They have made a lot of these games. Going back to earlier days isn’t abnormal for a long running series. I doubt it had anything to do with switch kids. He doesn’t look too much younger than in any other game.

But the game is also being released on PlayStation consoles. Why would you think the demographics of Switch gamers dictated the story production of the game?

Zeldafan6444d ago

The majority of people playing the Switch are over 18. About 1/3 of Switch players are under 18.

Nah! You're reaching.

It's not uncommon for Ys games to jump around in the timeline, they've done this before. In fact, there's often a divide for newcomers on whether they should play release order or chronological order as they begin to tackle the franchise.

Definitely looks like they are starting to get an increased budget. They have my attention.

FusedAbc44d ago

Hopefully it's for the Switch 2? Y's X was way to hard on the eyeballs.

FusedAbc44d ago

I meant 9 Nox or whatever ever it was titled ha!

raWfodog44d ago

Releasing in about 40 days so I’d say ‘nope’ lol

Still the graphics is underwhelming but overall looks great. I want to play it.

The new Armored Core all the way for me.

Iceman_Nightmare103d ago

I am looking forward to the new Armored Core game

banger88103d ago

I can't wait for Ys X, I don't think it will be localized this year however. Hopefully Q1 2024.

Anonymous;Code being #1 obviously after 9 years of development. Everyone's been waiting for that!

jznrpg91d ago

The Dev has $ issues I’m hoping this game helps them back out of the funk. I love Steins Gate.

Yui_Suzumiya91d ago

Most definitely! They really put alot of money into this which includes an English dub so I hope the western release proves to be successful!

jznrpg91d ago

I’ll get almost all of those

Yui_Suzumiya91d ago

Out of this particular list I want Crymachina and Master Detective Archives.
