Its time to scream Ys as Nihon Falcolm confirms brand new Ys game

Adol provided no comment

Nihon Falcom has confirmed that a brand new Ys game is in the works. After the success of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, some fans had expected a remake of Ys V to be in order. Instead, Nihon Falcom's president Toshihiro Kondo told French publication ActuGaming (translated by RPGSite), "Regarding the Ys series, we are working on a new game. It will not be a remake but a brand new title. It will be about Adol and it will be right after the events of Ys VIII."

The series has an exceptionally convoluted history where multiple versions of sequels exist from different studios. Ys IV, for example, has three different versions with the more recent Memories of Celceta being the only one considered canon. While Ys V was developed by Nihon Falcom, a PS2 remake was produced by Taito and further broke the continuity of the series. Fans were anticipating that a remake would rectify that, or at least was likely due to the release schedule from the past (sequel followed by remake).

In any case, more Ys is never a bad thing. When asked for comment, series protagonist Adol Christin stared intently into my face for a few minutes and then walked away. He seems excited to be continuing his journey.
