Nihon Falcom announced on Thursday that its Ys: Memories Of Celceta game will get a PlayStation 4 release on May 16. The release, titled Ys Celceta no Jukai: Kai, will be a full HD remaster of the game's PlayStation Vita version, have a frame rate of 60 fps, and feature enhanced sound quality.
The physical version of the game will cost 3,980 yen (about US$36), and the digital version will cost 3,500 yen (about US$32). The first physical copies will bundle a reprint of the Ys Kokon Kyoku Shū -Fukkokuban- CD, which features orchestral arrangements of Ys game series music. The CD first shipped with the 25th anniversary edition of the original game.
A PC version of the game launched last July. XSEED Games describes the story:
Knowing nothing but his name, Adol Christin awakens to find himself in the town of Casnan, a bustling frontier village at the edge of an endless sea of trees and untamed wilderness. Bereft of past and purpose, he is left to wander the town until a thief who claims to know him winds up joining him on a sudden mission to rid the local mine of monsters. This unexpected quest reawakens Adol's instincts as an accomplished swordsman, and together with the thief Duren, his adventures attract the attention of a Romun Army general stationed in the town. Impressed with their skills, she enlists the pair to assist in mapping the Great Forest of Celceta – a task which many have attempted but none have ever returned from. Far from the frontier's edge, Adol and Duren will have to brave the dangers of Celceta while constantly keeping an eye out for any clues that may help Adol recover his lost memories. More importantly, he must use his best judgment to decide whom he can trust and who is using his memory loss in order to deceive him…
Nihon Falcom originally released the game in Japan on the PlayStation Vita in September 2012, and XSEED Games released the game in North America in November 2013. NIS America released the game in Europe in February 2014.
