A New Ys Game is Confirmed

Toshihiro Kondo, president of Nihon Falcom, told that a new game in the franchise is in the development, taking place after Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

The Ys franchise has developed a cult following over the years, providing towering bossbattles, fast-paced combat, and amazing music. The series has survived a long and varied history stretching back to 1987 on the Japan-exclusive NEC PC-8801. The story has sprawled across dozens of continents and through decades of dungeon crawling. And it sounds like we're getting another one soon.

In a recent interview with Toshihiro Kondo a new entry in the Ys franchise wasconfirmed. Kondo, president of the developer Nihon Falcom, stated that the game ‘’won't be a remake but a completely brand-new title.’’ Continuing to follow Adol's journey, the game will take place directly after the events of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana. To some fans who have been waiting for a remake to the fifth title, this may be disappointing. However, a new entry in the series is also nothing to sneeze at!

No gameplay or release details were announced. The latest game,Ys VIII: Lacrimosa ofDana, was released in 2016 for the PS4 and more recently for Switch.
