If you are a gamer who has never heard of Falcom before today then you have probably missed out on one of the most interesting action RPG franchises of the past 25 years. The Ys series has always been a unique blend of blue haired Anime girls, red headed heroes, and insanely catchy music. With the series hitting its 25th anniversary this year it is no surprise that Falcom would try to fix one of the most confusing releases in history, Ys IV.
Foliage Oceans in Celceta is to be the definitive canonical release tying together both Dawn of Ys, and Mask of the Sun into one uniquely crafted title. While also taking the time to update it to HD graphics, and bring it to the newest handheld on the market, the PlayStation Vita.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, the PlayStation Vita has been lacking game releases since it was launched, so what are the chances we would get this insanely Japanese title stateside? It is more likely than you would think due to publishers like XSEED who have worked with Falcom in the past to bring over the series previous iterations onto the PSP and the PC. While no one has picked up the publishing rights for the title at the moment, XSEED, is our best bet.
