XSEED details upcoming PS Vita RPG's main cast of characters.

XSEED Games have released the first English screenshots and detailed the main cast of Ys: Memories of Celceta, due out for PS Vita this holiday in North America.

Ys: Memories of Celceta stars Adol Christin, who awakens on the outskirts of the Great Forest of Celceta with no memory of how he got there. Soon, he finds himself embarking on a new journey with an unknown companion as they delve into the forest on a quest to explore its vastness and find clues to his identity.

The game’s cast includes:

  • Adol Christin – The Ys series’ stalwart protagonist, Adol Christin is perhaps the most famous adventurer ever to have lived. Adol is a young man brimming with curiosity who constantly seeks the thrill of discovery and the wonders of new lands. This time around, however, the challenge is quite different – Adol is seeking to solve the mysteries of his own past.
  • Duren – Duren is an information dealer whom Adol encounters at a bar in Casnan. He claims to have met Adol before – though with no memory, Adol remains skeptical. An extremely kind-hearted man (though he’d never admit it), Duren can’t bring himself to walk away from someone in need, making him a perfect travel companion.
  • Karna – Karna is a cheerful, honest young girl who lives in the treetop village of Comodo. An extremely skilled huntress, she puts most of the other hunters in the village to shame with her accuracy and cunning talent. Her weapon of choice is the throwing knife, though she has an unfortunate habit of throwing first and asking questions later…
  • Ozma – A resident of the village of Selray, and the sole remaining member of the tribe which cares for the sacred beasts known as Spardas. Though young, Ozma acts as the village’s leader and has managed to uphold its peaceful ways for as long as he’s been in charge. Reliable, level-headed and dedicated, he is loved and respected by all of the village’s residents. While extremely stubborn and inflexible when it comes to the laws of his tribe, he is also extremely loyal to the people in his charge.
  • Calilica – Calilica is an energetic, curious young girl who is mature beyond her years in many regards. She harbors something of a complex about her age and youthful appearance, and is constantly seeking to be recognized as an adult by those around her. She looks up to Leeza as an older sister, and has been with her since they were both children. As such, she will hold back at nothing if she can be of assistance to her.

    I’m just curious, but to everyone who had already played the game, what is your impression of it (in term of both story and gameplay)?

    • kurosan9712

      I liked previous versions more (Ys IV: Mask of the Sun and Ys IV: Dawn of Ys). Won’t say more, as it’ll bring so much hate that I don’t want to read.
      Just to mention, the changes in the story are so small that if my friend didn’t buy the japanese version of the game(I borrowed it from him) – I’d have never played it.

      Since the game always follows the same duo Adol the red and Dogi the captain, the game follows each title as an adventure that happens in different parts of the world. The lands are so far apart from each other that each place has its own unnatural disasters that only affect that particular place. It’s kinda weird if you think about it, but it’s awesome that your name gets more known the farther you go into the series.

      The gameplay is fast pace and can sometimes be difficult if played on a hard mode (almost to a point where its crazy). You can power level to make things easier. You can fly by the story on easy mode. I really like how crazy the battles can get. The boss battles are pretty fun too.

        I concur with this. Boss battle in Yes SEVEN were great and fairly frequent.
