Ys X Nordics Dengeki Special Edition Announced; Features Pocket Watch, Compass, Lila’s Shell & More

Japanese retailer ebten has revealed a new special release of the upcoming Nihon Falcom-developed action JRPG Ys X Nordics, titled the Dengeki Special Edition. Priced at ¥26,950, this version can include the Adol Christin Edition we previously detailed and various other content.

The ebten special edition’s content is listed below, translated by our team’s Ryuji:

  • Ys X Nordics – Adol Christin Edition
  • Melody Rubber Charm – Lila’s Shell
  • Original B2 Tapestry
  • Four-koma manga newly drawn by Daisuke Shinkubo
  • Costume DLC: Carja’s Battle Dress
  • Ys 35th Anniversary Edition Limited Original Pocket Watch & Compass

On the store page, you can select variations of this package with differing amounts of content, altering the price point.

Ys X Nordics will occur between Ys II and Memories of Celceta, making it the new third canonical entry in Adol Christin’s adventure logs. The gameplay has undergone a significant shakeup, with there only being two playable characters this time around.

Special maneuvers can be unlocked via story scenes and exploration, allowing for environmental interaction. Further, in solo mode, the character you’re not controlling performs actions judged by their own discretion. Adol will be controlling a ship for combat and island hopping, too.

Unused Ys Seven concepts are being utilized in this outing, too. Ys X Nordics will allow players considerable explorative freedom, enabling naval travel with a recruitable crew and ship combat.

Ys X Nordics will launch in Japan for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch on September 28, 2023.
