If you’re a of the Ys series, Publisher D4 Enterprise is bringing the first entry of Nihon Falcom’s beloved RPG series to Nintendo Switch this week. Launching under the… intriguing name EGGCONSOLE Ys PC-8801mkIISR, which pays respects to the original PC-8801 version of the game, which was meant to be an accessible RPG for players of all skill types.

Here’s a bit about the game and what fans can expect:

This is an action RPG released by Nihon Falcom in 1987.

Players take on the role of Adol Christin, a red-haired adventurer, as he embarks on a journey to seek the six Books of Ys.

At the time of its release, the PC gaming industry was saturated with challenging RPGs. However, Nihon Falcom took a different approach with this game, releasing it with the concept of “Now, it’s the era to bring kindness in RPGs,” aiming to create an RPG that everyone could enjoy.

The game features clever level-up settings that eliminate the hassle of grinding for experience points, the removal of unreasonable traps, and agile characters that move smoothly. With numerous thoughtful design choices, the game can be enjoyed comfortably, and it is not an exaggeration to say that it is filled with “kindness,” as the tagline suggests.

The game will hit the Nintendo Switch eShop for $6.49 and can be found here. Will you be picking up EGGCONSOLE Ys PC-8801mkIISR? Let us know below and online!
