Ys X Nordics Reveals New Trailer & 40 Minutes of PS5 Gameplay

Dengeki and developer Nihon Falcom recently unveiled a brand-new trailer for the latter’s upcoming action JRPG Ys X Nordics, briefly highlighting various gameplay and story sequences.

Additionally, the broadcast shared roughly 40 minutes of gameplay for the title on PlayStation 5. A significant chunk of exploration, combat, ship features, and more are revealed, and it all looks fantastic.

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.
