Developer Nihon Falcom has published a new trailer for their upcoming action JRPG Ys X Nordics. The video is only half a minute long, but quite a bit is jam-packed here, between character scenes of Carja and Adol, as well as a variety of on-foot and ship combat sequences. The company also announced that first-print copies of the game will provide a Ride-Along Pikkard Plushie attachment and Pikkard suit.
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.
UPDATE 6/16/2023: Falcom has shared a new clip:
