Today Dotemu had good news to share for fans of the Ys series on Nintendo Switch. Ys Origin is coming to Nintendo’s console.
While no release date was announced besides a generic “later this year,” at least we know it’s coming.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, it’s a prequel released in 2006 for PC and then for PS4, Xbox One, and PS Vita between 2017 and 2018.
The announcement was accompanied by a trailer, which you can watch below.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can find an official description below, also describing the editions that will be available.
Ys Origin, the action RPG saga’s inaugural quest in which humanity flees a demon horde’s relentless pursuit, will reach the Nintendo Switch later this year.
Fans in North America can choose between one of two physical versions from Limited Run Games as part of a global distribution for Ys Origin’s physical Nintendo Switch release, or experience the modernized classic through the eShop.
Players in Europe can choose between either a standard or a collector’s edition from an european partner. Ys Origin will introduce Switch owners to the series’ exciting blend of combo-focused, arcade-paced combat, platforming, and challenging puzzles.
