More On: Ys Origin

Porting old games to the Switch is all the rage. Enter Ys Origin. The classic action JRPG originally released two years ago, and is the latest in a series that spans 15 other titles across 30 systems over more than 3 decades. Back when it first landed on Xbox One we gave it an 8, and have similarly high expectations for the port to Nintendo's console. The press release gives us some details on what to expect from this version:

  • Unique Playable Heroes: Slash through demon hordes as the powerful holy knight Yunica Tovah or bring down foes with devastating magic as the sorcerer Hugo Fact.
  • Incredible Boss Battles: Brave spectacular showdowns against massive and immensely powerful beasts, using wits to gain the upperhand against formidable titans.
  • Intuitive Action: Easy to learn combat brings heroes into the action quickly while still offering depth to keep the action engaging and challenging.
  • Added Speedrunning: Make saving the world look easy while racing to complete Ys Origin’s engrossing adventure in record time via its speedrun mode.
  • A Compelling Quest: Fight through a towering pillar crawling with demons in a vital search for the Goddesses that have abandoned the world in humanity’s hour of need.
  • Modern Refinements: Smart touches and all-around polish make this classic shine the way it was always meant to be experienced.

Ys Origins is available now at the Nintendo eShop for $20: https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/ys-origin-switch/
