XSEED Games has announced that the PC version of Ys VI The Ark of Napishtim will be released to Steam this spring.
This is the game that restarted the Ys series to the PC in 2003. It, in a way, relaunched the era of Falcom that many people know of today.
The game will feature an updated translation, a new Catastrophe Mode difficulty that will remove stockable/buyable items (making it more like Felghana and Origin) as well as being able to warp between checkpoints. It will also have updated graphics, widescreen and USB controller support.
Below is the official trailer for the XSEED release of Ys VI.
I have also included, for nostalgia’s sake, the original Buyer’s Guide for Ys VI that Falcom released when they originally announced the game and all of its bonus items.
Ys VI will be released on Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store
At this point, there is no information on price and release date, but I will post about those as soon as possible.
