Ys VIII's new localization won't be ready until 2018

Review: Ys Seven (PC)

During 2015, I managed to start my relationship with the English Ys PC games. From there, I fell in love with Falcom's other works. With XSEED bringing Ys Seven to Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store, it felt like I would witness another ...

Ys Seven travels to PC on August 30

Back when XSEED Games announced Trails of Cold Steel I and II for PC, I was hoping for them to could give Falcom's other Sony console-exclusive titles the same treatment. At the end of their Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection stre...

Trails of Cold Steel 1, 2 are finally PC-bound

When I search for headers, I Google the name in Japanese to get unique screens (but that's my secret; don't tell anyone else). What came up for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold 2 was a lot of romancin'. Like those heroines, the PC ...

Review: Ys Origin

When it comes to ports of older games, I've always been a fan of companies who give more players the opportunity to experience something they missed out on during its early run. While I rarely double-dip on titles, I like the idea of having...

Wow, we're getting Trails in the Sky the 3rd after all
