XSEED recently announced the release of Ys: Memories of Celceta on the PC. The game is already available via GOG, Humble Bundle, as well as Steam. Now remastered for the PC, this Action/JRPG game was originally released on the PlayStation Vita in 2013.
The adventure starts off with our protagonist Adol, who awakens in an unknown land with his memories lost. Even with this, his thirst for adventure is unrelenting, seeking quest and of course reclaiming his memories. After rescuing miners from a collapse, the local Romun Army General enlist Adol, tasking him to explore the Great Forest of Celceta. This is where our story begins.
What is new in this Remaster?
The game is now in HD! – Players new and old will be able to explore stunning rendered environments. Plan your strategies ahead of time as the massive draw distance will help you to see enemies from afar. There are fully customizable control bindings, integrated mouse support, best of all the game comes with the option to unlock framerate or set fixed framerates up to 120fps, and many more features.
Day and Night Cycle – This feature is a first for the series. Players will be able to cycle from morning, noon, night, and dusk while exploring the Great Forest. By adding this feature, certain elements will only be available at certain times of the day.
Discovering Adol’s Past – Suffering from amnesia, Adol has no recollection of who he is. Scattered throughout the Great Forest, Adol will need to inspect mysterious orbs of light to regain his lost memories. Piecing all this together will help with the storyline and even give a glimpse to Adol’s childhood.
Time Attack and Boss Rush Mode – Who doesn’t like a challenge. The fan-favorite Time Attack mode makes a comeback including with Boss Rush challenge, which puts Adol alone up against foes or allowing for full-on part combat. This mode is available after completing the main story. Players will also be able to see who is the best-slayer across the world with the Steam leaderboards implemented.
