Next Ys title in development, set after Ys VIII

Ys IX announcement on the way?

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

The next Ys title is reportedly in development, Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo told French website ActuGaming.

“Regarding the Ys series, we are working on a new game,” Kondo told the website. “It will not be a remake but a brand new title. It will be about Adol and it will be set right after the events of Ys VIII. I hope you will look forward to it.”

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, the 2016-released latest entry in the Ys series, was announced at Sony’s pre-Tokyo Game Show 2014 press conference. With Tokyo Game Show 2018 approaching, Sony has a similar event planned for September 10. Perhaps an official announcement will be made there?
