Ys Origin is now available on Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system, for €19.99, including new and exclusive content from developer and publisher Dotemu. Ys Origin details the earliest events of the Ys universe where players face hordes of deadly beasts and creative puzzles while ascending a dangerous tower with arcade-like, combo-driven action and platforming.
An exclusive new speedrun mode, available only for Xbox One players, will allow players to share their results on Xbox Live leaderboards to prove themselves as the fastest Ys Origin player in the world. An all-new ‘blood option’ also allows players to set the amount of gore seen in game – a feature entirely unique to the Xbox One version of Ys Origin.
In Ys Origin, it is 700 years before the events of Ys I & II, set during a time where the land of Ys was on the brink of destruction. Demons came in droves and forced the twin Goddesses who ruled the land to whisk their subjects away into the safe embrace of the clouds. The demons persisted, however, advancing their pursuit by constructing a massive tower reaching toward the heavens. The battle which raged upon the ground had begun ascending for a second round above.
Ys Origin‘s fast-paced action and epic boss battles present fans with all-new gameplay mechanics and a twist in the storytelling – for the first time, Adol Christin is not the protagonist. Players will select one of three characters: Yunica Tovah, Hugo Fact or The Claw and master each character’s unique skill set while experiencing their distinct stories.
