Ys Origin (“Ys” is pronounced “eess”) is a prequel to the Ys franchise, the flagship series from Nihon Falcom. They are masters at creating JRPG, working on the beloved Trails in the Sky and Trails of Cold Steel series. Ys Origin released in Japan in 2006 and was ported to Steam for Western audiences in 2012. And now it made its way to the PlayStation 4. I really liked Ys: Memories of Celceta on the Vita, so I was very much looking forward to trying this one.

RPG gamers rejoice! The beloved Ys franchise has a new game for us in 2 weeks! Ys Origin is getting a PS4 release on February 21, followed by a Vita release later on May. I’ve been a die-hard fan of the franchise since I played, and loved (and Platinumed!) the excellent Ys: Memories of Celceta on the PlayStation Vita a few years ago.
DotEmu and XSEED are bringing us Ys Origin, the starting point of the Ys franchise, on both the PlayStation 4 and Vita! I’ve been a huge fan of the Ys franchise since I reviewed Ys: Memories of Celceta back in 2013. I’m already very happy about this new release and I’m really pumped to see that it’s releasing on February 21, 2017!
