Newly released today;
The Ys series for Nintendo DS is not a simple remake of the previous series, but it utilizes the potential of the DS by using one of the screens to show the playing field and the other to show detailed information on the characters.
The players are presented with an option of controlling their characters in the orthodox way by making use of the buttons or the touch pen to execute combos and other secret attacks.
Because of the DS's capabilities, a maximum of four people can play together now and enjoy an unforgettable adventure.
The Ys series is said to be the mother of the fantasy RPG genre. This 2D RPG series features not only an exciting game play, engaging plot, dazzling magic and a set of charming characters, but also promotes traditional heroic qualities like innocence, compassion, chivalry and gallantry. With these attributes, the remake of this classic title is a refreshing change from the trendy games these days that celebrates graphic depictions of debauchery.
Once upon a time the world was blessed by the twin goddesses. Because of their power, the world prospered and the land was filled with greenery. People have used the black pearl that embodies magical powers and created the precious metal Cleria. However, during its creation, side effects such as demons and evils emerged.
It was already too late when the high priests discover the connection between evil and Cleria, although they have buried the metal deep into the ground, evil that stemmed from it has already infested the land. Under the terror of rioting demons, the people escaped to the shrine of Sermons, and using the powers of the black pearl, the priests cut the chains of gravity that ties the shrine to the earth and takes it away from the turmoil.
Centuries passed peacefully, the people have forgotten about the twin goddesses and the shrine. When they discovered Cleria from underground, they dug it up as silver without truly fathoming its power, and once again, evil emerges.
It is amidst this chaos that a young traveler Adol left his home to journey through the land, the sixteen year old has no idea what awaits him in his journey.
