Developer Nihon Falcom announced Ys X Nordics, a new entry celebrating the series’ 35th anniversary and will launch in 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch in Japan.

▍Ys X Nordics Gameplay
The battle system of the previous Ys games is completely redesigned in Ys X Nordics. Players can enjoy a fast-paced Solo Mode that allows you to fight alone with your partner’s automatic attacks and support being controlled by the AI.
A Combo Mode is also available for players to control both main and support characters at the same time to fight against powerful enemies. Furthermore, the Cross Action system allows players to fight in one of the two modes depending on the situation!
This latest installment will also add a new element where you can actually control a ship in the game. Explore vast ocean areas using nautical charts as a guide, or challenge enemy ships in naval battles!
