Are you ready for a brand new adventure in the Ys series? Developer Nihon Falcom recently updated the official website for their upcoming action JRPG Ys X Nordics, providing profiles for the game’s protagonist, Adol Christin, and the main heroine, Carja Balta. Additionally, while the latter’s profile doesn’t state this, a new tweet from Falcom does confirm that Carja is 17 years old.
Ys X Nordics is set to be the third canonical entry in the Ys series, taking place between Ys II and Memories of Celceta. Players will be able to explore the game’s world with two playable characters, Adol and Carja. Special maneuvers can be unlocked via story scenes and exploration, allowing for environmental interaction. Moreover, in solo mode, the character you’re not controlling will perform actions judged by their own discretion.
Unused concepts from Ys Seven will also be making an appearance in Ys X Nordics, giving players considerable explorative freedom. Players will be able to take to the seas with a recruitable crew and engage in ship combat.
Ys X Nordics is set to launch in Japan for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 in 2023. Are you ready to join Adol and Carja on their new adventure? Keep an eye on the official website for more information and updates.
