Ys X Nordics Finally Reveals Gameplay Footage

Developer Nihon Falcom has finally unveiled gameplay footage of Ys X Nordics in their latest broadcast. Following the majority of the stream consisting of a Time Attack competition for Ys The Oath in Felghana: Memoire and a brief highlight of Tokyo Xanadu eX+ ahead of its native Switch port, Ys X was discussed and shown.

There is footage of Adol and Dogi on a ship, presumably at the start of the game, with various exploration and combat sequences showcased afterward. Further, new artwork was revealed, albeit not to their greatest capacities. Ship combat and a boss battle are even present.

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.

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 Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 in 2023.
