In Ys: Memories of Celceta - Timeless Adventurer Edition from XSEED Games for the Sony PS4, developer Falcom revisits the land and characters of Japanese cult favorite Ys IV for a newly remastered North American debut.
The Ys: Memories of Celceta - Timeless Adventurer Day 1 Edition will come packaged with a special soundtrack CD that was part of the “Ys 25th Anniversary Pack” in Japan, containing 9 re-arranged songs from Ys I through Ys SEVEN and Ys Origin along with another 5 songs from the original MSX release, as well as twelve 4” x 6” art cards highlighting various heroines from Ys lore!
Knowing nothing but his name, Adol Christin awakens to find himself in the town of Casnan—a bustling frontier village at the edge of an endless sea of trees and untamed wilderness. Bereft of past and purpose, he is left to wander the town until a mysterious information dealer named Duren who claims to know him joins Adol on a sudden mission to rid the local mine of monsters.
This unexpected quest reawakens Adol’s instincts as an accomplished swordsman, and their exploits quickly attract the attention of Griselda, a Romun Army general stationed in the town. Impressed with their skills, she enlists the pair to assist in mapping the Great Forest of Celceta – a task which many have attempted but none have ever returned from. Far from the frontier’s edge, Adol and Duren must brave the dangers of Celceta while constantly keeping watch for any clues that may help Adol recover his lost memories.
