Legacy of Ys (pronounced eess) is a DS remake of the first two installments of the Ys roleplaying game series. It is a back-to-basics hack-and-slash game and brings nothing new to the table.
The player controls a red-head adventurer named Adol. He travels on a body of water during a storm and get washed ashore to the land of Esteria. He talks to the local townspeople and embarks on a quest to find the six Books of Ys.
Both games open up with a well-produced animated sequence. The art is done in Japanese anime style. The opening is captivating enough for players to take interest in Adol's journey.
