An overview of the game can be read as follows (Via Gematsu):
Ys Origin will introduce Switch owners to the series’ exciting blend of combo-focused, arcade-paced combat, platforming, and challenging puzzles. Get a glimpse at the many trials standing between players and the world’s salvation by viewing Ys Origin’s gameplay in action in the announcement trailre.
Fans who opt for Limited Run Games’ releases can choose between a standard version and a special collector’s edition which includes a poster, a physical copy of the game’s stirring soundtrack, an art book capturing scenes from Ys Origin’s surreal world, and a unique collector’s box. Demon slayers can keep tabs on both versions and their eventual release by following Limited Run Games on Twitter.
Ys Origin joins aspiring knight Yunica Tovah and mage Hugo Fact, two fighters desperately searching for the Goddesses that have abandoned them. Together the duo must best the demonic forces lurking within an enormous tower before the beasts reach humanity’s sanctuary in the clouds. With tons of powerful loot to earn, distinct scenarios and playstyles between each character as well as secrets to unveil, Ys Origin is a deep, compelling RPG experience.
As per a tweet from the Dotemu, 2 physical editions will be available courtesy of Limited Run Games. European customers, on the other hand, will be able to get their hands on the physical editions via local retailers.
The Collectors edition will include the base game, a collectible box, official soundtrack, steelbook, collector’s edition artbook, and an 18×24 reversible poster which you can pre-order starting July 8.
No release date has been given for the title but it is set to come out later this year.
