Happy spring break, everyone!
I dropped in a couple of updates if you’ve been following on twitter, but I’ll repeat them here:
Ys I-II-Seven Set is Out
See that? It’s out. I’ll be removing it from the release list on the right, over there.
Dogi-Radio Post on 3/24
Per Falcom’s twitter, Dogi-Radio will be updated on 3/24 with the results of the Ys Character Ranking Poll. Who do you think got first place? Where do you think Zava placed? (These are questions off of the tweet about it. :o)
More Ys vs Sora no Kiseki information
Warning, as most of this comes from 2ch, it’s still very unverified.
I do have two more scans posted in the gallery. They’re very large, though, and not very good quality.
These images come from the thumbnails. Go check out the Ys vs Sora no Kiseki gallery in the site gallery to see larger res versions!
They do show us this much:
Tita uses Napalm Breath
Olivier has Requiem Hearts (/yes/)
Joshua has Evil Eye- which I think would be evil in an action RPG. :o
And that is most certainly Jurio and Chris from ED3. :o
And three tiny images of the article itself:
Scans of the article would still be appreciated. They never seemed to pop up on 2ch.
Speaking of 2ch. A new Dengeki article apparently has more information:
*Adol’s introduction describes the use of fire magic.
*The Sora no Kiseki characters were summoned *after* the events of 3rd.
*Effort was put in so that the dialogue between the Ys and Sora no Kiseki character would not feel unnatural.
*There are a lot of support characters to assist the player characters.
*A large number of Falcom’s works are referenced in this, if not in player characters, then through the support chars.
*During the three months of audio recording, the BGM work was started as well. There should be no less than 100 songs in the game.
*They’re pushing the UMD capacity to the limit for this game.
oof. Now for updates from Falcom’s page itself.

These have gone out to the three main carriers in Japan already.
