Arriving on the Xbox platform for the first time is the Ys series in Ys Origin. It will release on April 11th and include two features exclusive to the Xbox ; a “blood option” and speedrun mode.
Following a devastating demonic invasion, the twin Goddesses use their magic to bring the inhabitants of legendary Ys safely into the sky. While the demons work to construct Devil’s Tower and reach the humans’ new abode, the Goddesses disappear. As a mighty warrior or a cunning mage, you must seek the Goddesses in Devil’s Tower. With your swordsmanship and spells, can you banish evil from the land of your ancestors?
With its captivating story, stirring soundtrack, and epic boss battles, Ys Origin remains one of the best action-RPGs of all time!
The Ys series is one of the oldest and most respected among all JRPGs so it’s great to finally see it on the Xbox platform. We’re not sure how much value the exclusive features will add, but that’s just a cherry on top and shouldn’t impact from the core experience.
