An extensive reimagining of (and pseudo-sequel to) Ys IV, one of the only Ys games never before released in the west, this title puts more enemies on screen than ever before and features the largest, most non-linear overworld in Ys history, boasting superlative graphics and a triumphant evolution of the fast-paced gameplay that has made this series a timeless action RPG mainstay. As the game opens, long-time protagonist Adol Christin finds himself alone, dazed and confused in a strange land, and must piece together his memories of how he got here and why, all the while struggling to determine whom he can trust.
The Ys series has long been known for its fast-paced and acrobatic combat, and Ys: Memories of Celceta proudly continues this tradition on the PlayStation®Vita system, adding optional touchscreen functionality to create a handheld action RPG experience unlike any other. Through clever use of the PS Vita’s rear touch pad, players are able to issue commands to allied forces while simultaneously engaging enemies in combat; and for a better view of the action, the camera can be zoomed in or out at any time through use of the device’s front touchscreen, providing a tactical advantage in large-scale fights. More processing power means more enemies on screen, and with the largest, most non-linear overworld in Ys history, Ys: Memories of Celceta boasts a superlative atmospheric experience, representing a thoroughly modern evolution of the high tempo gameplay that has made this series a timeless action RPG mainstay.
