Ys X Nordics Showcases 8 Minutes of Brand-New Gameplay

Japanese outlet Dengeki recently held a livestream showcasing two new gameplay segments with new footage from Nihon Falcom’s Ys X Nordics. The clips that were shown showcase the protagonist, Adol, wearing the Pikkard Suit, which will be given to all players as a purchase bonus, similar to the full-body Mishy costume in Kuro no Kiseki II, and the new Island Recapturing combat.

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.

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