Earlier today, video game publisher XSEED Games released a new set of English language screenshots as well as character details for its upcoming PlayStation Vita Action-RPG, "Ys: Memories of Celceta"
Developed by Nihon Falcom in Japan, "Ys: Memories of Celceta" is a reimagining of "Ys IV", one of the few titles in the 25-year history of the video game series to never makes in way west. The game follows series hero, Adol Christin, who after waking up on the outskirts of the Great Forest of Celceta, finds that he has no memory of how he got there. Traveling with an unknown companion, Adol will begin a new adventure into the forest in the hopes of rediscovering his identity along the way.
"Ys: Memories of Celceta" will be available for the PlayStation Vita this holiday season in limited and standard editions. The new English screenshots for the game can be found in the slideshow on the left, along with character art for some of the game’s main cast, whose descriptions you can find below.
The Ys series’ stalwart protagonist, Adol Christin is perhaps the most famous adventurer ever to have lived. Adol is a young man brimming with curiosity who constantly seeks the thrill of discovery and the wonders of new lands. This time around, however, the challenge is quite different – Adol is seeking to solve the mysteries of his own past.
Duren is an information dealer whom Adol encounters at a bar in Casnan. He claims to have met Adol before – though with no memory, Adol remains skeptical. An extremely kind-hearted man (though he’d never admit it), Duren can’t bring himself to walk away from someone in need, making him a perfect travel companion.
Karna is a cheerful, honest young girl who lives in the treetop village of Comodo. An extremely skilled huntress, she puts most of the other hunters in the village to shame with her accuracy and cunning talent. Her weapon of choice is the throwing knife, though she has an unfortunate habit of throwing first and asking questions later...
A resident of the village of Selray, and the sole remaining member of the tribe which cares for the sacred beasts known as Spardas. Though young, Ozma acts as the village’s leader and has managed to uphold its peaceful ways for as long as he’s been in charge. Reliable, level-headed and dedicated, he is loved and respected by all of the village’s residents. While extremely stubborn and inflexible when it comes to the laws of his tribe, he is also extremely loyal to the people in his charge.
Calilica is an energetic, curious young girl who is mature beyond her years in many regards. She harbors something of a complex about her age and youthful appearance, and is constantly seeking to be recognized as an adult by those around her. She looks up to Leeza as an older sister, and has been with her since they were both children. As such, she will hold back at nothing if she can be of assistance to her.
