Developer Nihon Falcom updated the official website for their upcoming action JRPG Ys X Nordics, providing profiles for the game’s protagonist, Adol Christin, and the main heroine, Carja Balta. Additionally, while the latter’s profile doesn’t state this, a new tweet from Falcom does confirm that Carja is 17 years old.
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.
