The first 3D entry in Nihon Falcom’s widely acclaimed Ys franchise and the foundation upon which series favorites Ys: The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin were later built, Ys VI is a cornerstone title in the epic tale of adventurer Adol Christin’s many exploits. Featuring recurring characters and themes from previous titles and introducing new characters and themes which would greatly impact later Ys games, Adol’s quest to solve the mysteries of Canaan sees him fending off Romun soldiers, exploring ancient ruins, collecting mystical swords and becoming part of local legend by communing with the gods themselves, all while caught in the middle of a massive feud between the native Rehda people and the human “Eresians.” With more lore than almost any other installment in the series, a unique tropical island setting, prominent appearances by fan-favorite side characters Dogi and Geis, the franchise’s trademark massive boss battles and an exciting new game mode, this edge-of-your-seat entry is a true action RPG classic reborn for a new generation!
