Evocative RPG Ys Origin is coming to the Nintendo Switch later in 2020. The news was announced this morning by publisher Dotemu, who also took the time to reveal not one, but two physical editions from boutique retailer Limited Run Games.
Starting Wednesday, July 8, those in North America will be able to pre-order two physical editions from Limited Run Games: the base game and a new collector’s edition. The $70 collector’s edition includes the game, a steelbook case, an 18×24 poster, the soundtrack, and an art book.
Ys Origin first launched for PC in December 2006, followed by Steam worldwide in May 2012, PlayStation 4 in February 2017, PS Vita in May 2017, and Xbox One in April 2018.
Here is an overview of the Switch version:
Ys Origin will introduce Switch owners to the series’ exciting blend of combo-focused, arcade-paced combat, platforming, and challenging puzzles. Get a glimpse at the many trials standing between players and the world’s salvation by viewing Ys Origin’s gameplay in action in the announcement trailre.
Fans who opt for Limited Run Games’ releases can choose between a standard version and a special collector’s edition which includes a poster, a physical copy of the game’s stirring soundtrack, an art book capturing scenes from Ys Origin’s surreal world, and a unique collector’s box. Demon slayers can keep tabs on both versions and their eventual release by following Limited Run Games on Twitter.
Ys Origin joins aspiring knight Yunica Tovah and mage Hugo Fact, two fighters desperately searching for the Goddesses that have abandoned them. Together the duo must best the demonic forces lurking within an enormous tower before the beasts reach humanity’s sanctuary in the clouds. With tons of powerful loot to earn, distinct scenarios and playstyles between each character as well as secrets to unveil, Ys Origin is a deep, compelling RPG experience.
