When XSEED first announced they had plans to bring the Ys games to Steam, I was positively thrilled. Yes, Oath in Felghana plays fantastically on its native system, but I was significantly more excited for Ys Origin, the prequel that had never officially been released in English. The game takes some 700 years before the first Ys game, has three playable characters and is just filled to the brim with content.
Looks like I'll get to dig in deep very soon; Ys Origin will be hitting Steam next Thursday on May 31st. No word yet on pricing, but expect the details to come soon considering how close the release date is. In the mean time, you should head over to the newly opened official site that has character bios, gameplay details and some sexy wallpapers.
Anyone else planning on grabbing Origin? I've heard it's absolutely incredible.
