Updates on Falcom’s website
I’ve been a little slow on an update, but that’s okay, since I’ve got a lot to add, right?
Ys Seven Play Diary 5
Ika-chan talks about Mustafa and Extra Skills. She comments that you fill your extra gauge by using skills and just over time. There’s also another mention that she thinks using Flash Guard increases your Extra Gauge as well.
If I’m correct, she’s a little wary to use Flash Guard because of the risk it poses, too. You deal critical damage if you counter after using it, but if you miss-time the Flash Guard, you take critical damage instead.
Ys Seven Play Diary 6
Entry #6 is about boss fights. Ika also talks about skills and learning them through weapons. She emphasizes that it is very important to pay attention to your weapons.
Ys Portal Site Updated
New Senryuu posted- for 8/26~9/1
New phantom Piccard is now posted on the website.
New quest! This is one of those ‘what differences do you see?’ things. The picture has been reversed and pictures have been put into the other variant. Count the number of differences in the picture and submit an entry to Falcom to see if you can win an Ys Seven muffler-towel!
Ys Seven Website Updated
Downloads Page Updated
Two new PSP Wallpapers – One of Draizen, and another wallpaper of Adol.
New PC Wallpaper – Mishera
New Screenshots from the Ys Seven website added to Esterior gallery
Update to the System Page – Boss Battles
The first monster it speaks of is a large, two headed monster. The heads are long, though, giving it a long reach for attack away from its body. It’s crucial to find its weak point and aim at it.
There is a point when it lowers its physical attack power, but you will start seeing ‘WARNING’ flashing on the screen as a headsup that it’s about to use a fast counterattack.
The site also brings up the attack evasion ability. If you time it correctly, using the X button when an enemy attacks, you will evade, moving in the direction of the d-pad. It is a very good move in increasing the distance between you and the enemy.

Fan Translation Projects?!
Since I’m going to actually keep an eye on them for this site too, there are a bunch of projects starting to come out of the woodwork.
Keep your eyes open on the Ys Origin Project (I’m not just saying that because I’m part of it), because an announcement for it will be made soon.
However, while watching Ancient Land of Ys, it seems that a whole bunch of them are now popping up. Ghideon Zhi has recently stated that he is still working on the Ys V SNES translation. Wyrdwad has been working on Xanadu Next. There’s been a secret, unnamed project talked about on on ALoY, as well as interest in translating Zwei II.
what kind of person am i if i don’t mention my sora no kiseki project??? D:
Extra Life Charity Gaming Marathon
Sanctuary Gaming Streams will be taking part of the Extra Life Marathon to take place on October 17 – 18, 2009. This is of interest due to the fact that they will be streaming their 24 hour game run attempt, playing nothing but games from the Ys series.
You can view their stream by visiting this site.
More information will be posted on how to donate/sponsor for them as it comes out.
All proceeds from the Extra Life Marathon go to the Texas Children’s Cancer Center.
