Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim heads for Windows
XSEED Games has announced the release date for the PC version of Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim — formerly a PS2 and PSP exclusive title.
The PC version will include a newly translated script, higher-resolution graphics, USB controller support and widescreen gameplay. XSEED also says that several gameplay changes have been introduced, like being able to warp among checkpoints, and a new difficulty called “Catastrophe Mode” where you are not allowed to purchase or store healing items — rather they are immediately consumed after picking them up. Sounds like a good challenge.
Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim will be available by digital distribution on the usual channels (Steam, Humble Bundle, and GOG) for $19.99 (or €17.99, and £13.99) starting on April 28, 2015. XSEED games also announced that the game will be available with a 15% discount on the first week of release.
