It’s almost here, two days to go until us North Americans can enjoy this treasure of RPG awesomeness. Ys Seven was released in Japan a little less than a year ago and as you may expect, it is the seventh instalment in the Ys series. You may not have heard of this series of game before, but that is probably because the first three games were released for the NEC PC-8801. Then the fourth came to the SNES and the PC Engine and most future games came to the Windows platform. This is the first release of a Ys game to be released in North America on a console device first. XSeed, the company that is taking care of localization of this game, has also recently done work on Ivy The Wiki.
Ys Seven is a very fast-paced, action-RPG in which you rely on elemental weaponry to defeat enemies and bosses. You also have the ability to switch between the AI controlled characters for some more strategy, just in case the AI is not doing it the way you want. You, the main character Adol, are on a mission to stop a great evil and you have the power of Five Legendary dragons to help. Sound Interesting? check out the video below.
