Ys: Memories of Celceta coming to Europe in early 2014

Revisit the land and characters of Ys IV.

NIS America will publish Ys: Memories of Celceta for PS Vita in Europe early next year, the company has announced.

The game revisits the land and characters of Ys IV, changing and framing its story within an all new tale of “conspiracy, deception, and mystery.” It features an updated version of Ys Seven‘s party-based battle system and the “largest and most varied overworld” in the series’ history.

A North American release, courtesy of XSEED Games, is due out this holiday.

Find a list of key features below:

  • Experience the Land of Celceta in English for the Very First Time – Its first ever release in Europe, Ys: Memories of Celceta will take players on a new adventure in never-before-seen locales within the Ys universe.
  • Explore the Biggest Overworld in Ys Series History – Eclipsing all previous entries in the Ys series in both size and content, the overworld map metes out battle and exploration in equal measure. A robust mapping system with customizable waypoints and clear, detailed icons aid the journey through this mysterious new land.
  • Adventure Forth with a Party of Allies – The party battle system from Ys Seven returns, but this time with a host of upgrades such as enhanced flash-guarding, a more versatile party AI, and unique abilities for party members to streamline encounters for fast and furious battle.
  • Throw Down the Gauntlet in Boss Rush Mode – Boss Rush makes a comeback, pitting Adol and his companions against implacable foes to keep the challenge going well after the main story has been completed.
