Developer Nihon Falcom announced that the Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana will be coming to Nintendo Switch on April 27, 2023, after being teased at the developer’s Shareholders Meeting a few months prior.
First released for PSP in 2010, Ys: The Oath in Felghana was highly acclaimed as a masterpiece in the Ys action RPG series. This high-definition remastered version further improves the game with additional elements.
In Ys: The Oath in Felghana, Adol Christin and his companion Dogi head to Dogi’s homeland after an eight-year absence, but as soon as they set foot, hordes of violent monsters roam the outskirts, and a long-dormant volcano has suddenly sprung back to life and the new lord of the land has begun mercilessly extorting money from the citizens. Determined to help them, Adol and Dogi find themselves embroiled in a world of political conspiracies, ancient legacies, and unthinkable taboos.
