▍About Ys X Nordics
Ys X Nordics is the latest in the Ys video game franchise by Nihon Falcom, bringing another chapter to Adol’s adventure between Ys IV and
Ys X Nordics features a Cross Action battle system, that lets you take control of either Adol or Carja or together as a duo! This allows players to fight with either character’s specialties of fire, or ice magic, or combine their strengths on certain enemies to overwhelm their foes.
Ys X Nordics also introduces naval traversal as Adol now commanders his own ship with a crew of familiar and new faces, traveling the open seas and facing off against other pirates in naval combat and cannons!
One of Ys X Nordic’s key actions is the inclusion of Mana actions, specific interactions with the environment you can perform by converting mana into useful tools, and for combat.
Adol can convert energy into things like strings, ride energy lines using his Grimble Board, and launch high into the sky with Windpools to reach new levels of verticality, and for the level design to expand like never before!
