XSEED Releasing Ys VI The Ark of Napishtim to Steam, GOG, and Humble Store


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.

  1. in the “Buyers Guide” video, which side-scrolling Ys game was shown in the 2:01 – 2:02 ? It doesn’t look like to be Ys III.

    1. That looks like the SNES version of Popful Mail at that clip. The section is on the DVD that came with the original LE set for Ys VI, which had footage from the OVAs, some JDK Band stuff, and other random footage through it. Just after it, they were showing footage from Legend of Xanadu as an example.

  2. Ys VI on PS2 was what really drew me back into the series, glad to see that XSEED got the license away from Konami and is publishing it on PC. However I’d still prefer to see a Zweii game instead…
