Developer Nihon Falcom has revealed special pre-order bonus DLC for their upcoming action JRPG Ys X Nordics. Three bonuses, in particular, are highly noteworthy since they depict new artwork of the game’s two playable characters, Adol Christin and Carja Balta.
Firstly, purchasing the title from Amazon Japan will give customers a code for a new Adol costume, comprising his attire in the series’ latest chronological entry, Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, where he’s known as the Crimson King.
On the other hand, buying the game from the Japanese retailers Geo and Dengeki/ebten provides two costumes for Carja, with the latter showing her off in pretty snazzy armor.
You can view the full list of retailer-specific Ys X Nordics DLC via the game’s official website.

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.
