Publisher Dotemu announced that the action RPG classic Y’s is coming to the Nintendo Switch in the form of Ys Origin. It will be released later this year on the eShop, and a physical release will be taken care of by Limited Run Games. Check out the announcement trailer below.
Ys Origin, the action RPG saga’s inaugural quest, in which humanity flees a demon horde’s relentless pursuit, will reach the Nintendo Switch later this year. Fans in North America can choose between one of two physical versions from Limited Run Games as part of a global distribution for Ys Origin’s physical Nintendo Switch release, or they can experience the modernized classic through access on the eShop.
Ys Origin will introduce Switch owners to the series’ exciting blend of combo-focused, arcade-paced combat, platforming, and challenging puzzles.
Fans who opt for Limited Run Games’ releases can choose between a standard version and a special collector’s edition which includes a poster, a physical copy of the game’s stirring soundtrack, an art book capturing scenes from Ys Origin’s surreal world, and a unique collector’s box. Demon slayers can keep tabs on both versions and their eventual release by following Limited Run Games on Twitter.
Ys Origin joins aspiring knight Yunica Tovah and mage Hugo Fact, two fighters desperately searching for the Goddesses that have abandoned them. Together the duo must best the demonic forces lurking within an enormous tower before the beasts reach humanity’s sanctuary in the clouds. With tons of powerful loot to earn, distinct scenarios and playstyles between each character as well as secrets to unveil, Ys Origin is a deep and compelling RPG experience.
