Sorry, it's been a long while but various things happened. So this will be one giant news burst.

Fan translation of Zero no Kiseki/Trails of Zero is underway. Originally it was being partially machine translated by the people who did the Nayuta no Kiseki fan translation but is now being dealt with by people familiar with the series and language

 

Joyoland, the people behind the Chinese PC ports of Trails of Zero, Trails of Azure, Ys: Memories of Celceta and Ys VII have added them to greenlight. This is not indicative of a release but at least offers a framework for possible fan translations or patching in the Xseed translations for the latter.

 

Ys origin is coming to PS Vita on February 21. This previously PC only title is being ported over.[/rul]

 

Ys VIII  the PS4 version is launching May 25th in Japan

 

Following this, it will support 4K, run at 60 fps and has a few new game features such as additional content for Dana and Adol. Most importantly, it has shorter load times

 

Trails of Cold Steel 3 has been confirmed. It will be PS4 only and releases in Fall 2017 for Japan.

 

Finally, Tokyo Xanada's ex+ version of the game which  features additional content from the original version has been confirmed for release on the PS4 in the West by Axsys. This is the version which will also be used for the Steam version.

 

The ex+ version will launch in Fall 2017 for the Steam ver and the PS4 ver will be Winter 2017 for Europe. The Vita version will still be released and is slated for Summer 2017.

The game will feature only Japanese voice over with subtitles. No English dub.

Ys 8 to release in the US and Europe in Fall 2017 for PS4, Vita and PC on Steam

Limited edition versions are up for the US only so far.

 

Looking forward to this. It still has a lot of flaws of newer Ys games including some irritating cutscenes but it is the best of the series. Looking forward to the PS4 JP version in May then finally English later in the year!

I'll probably end up buying VIII, but I really haven't liked the recent Ys games. Adding a load of cutscenes, fetch quests, and stripping out the platforming really hasn't helped the series. The older games were completely devoid of padding. 7 and Celceta seemed to go on forever.

Well this brings jumping back so there's some platforming but I wouldn't say it's like Origin or Oath.

The story cutscenes were fine from what I could tell since I didn't understand it it's just there's a few too many micro ones.

Fetch quests are mostly in sidequests only. Those normally boil down to a trio of "fetch a thing, kill a thing or escort someone while killing things"

 

I liked the plot ideas of 8 though (from what I got) and exploring the island is pretty fun. Some great looking locations too.

 

If you didn't like 7 and Celceta this probably won't win you over but it's still a god improvement though. Except for the town defense missions. Fuck those.

Started playing Ys origin and I feel like an idiot. I'm barely five minutes in and I can't figure out the mechanic that lets me jump across the first set of platforms you trigger. The last jump is too long and I don't seem to have a dash or anything.

 

Sorted now. That's a fucking stupid mechanic given the button placement.

I've just Pre-ordered ordered YS Origin (PS4) from Play-Asia last night. Not sure why the thread title suggests it was released already on the PS4 years ago, but it's due out on Vita and PS4 in May. This is actually the first time I've bought an actual import too. Grew up on them but they were always pirate arr copies. Despite it already being out on the PC for a while, I'm excited to get it on the console. It was totally an impulse purchase by the way.

The PS4 version of Ys Origin was released digitally on the PS4 a couple of weeks ago.

 

The Vita version was delayed to May for digital. There's a small physical release of the game for Vita which is the one you found on Play Asia.

I've had a few of the Ys games sitting in my steam library since 2013 and it was only last week I finally loaded a game up, I decided to give Ys 1&2 chronicles a spin. Holy shit! I should have played these games years a go.

 

I only beat the first game last night but it was brilliant, the combat is so fast and smooth, the music is amazing, I loved the art style and the story and characters are good as well.

 

The final boss is a right bastard though, must have took me at least an hour to beat him and in the end I was left standing with 7hp left..

My order wasn't vita it's ps4 I'm sure of it and it was delayed till this month. Been waiting forever for it. Even Limited Run games are getting their physical edition before me at this rate.

I picked it up as well, I don't expect I'll be playing it anytime soon but I wanted to show support for bringing games like this to PC.

 

I'm a few hours into Ys book two now and it really is a joy to play, such a nice game to just kick back and relax to. The only thing I'd like added would be an in game map. I love the art style as well, those type of graphics age incredibly well I find.

YS 8 is the best YS game I played on the strength of the combat and enemy variety as well as game length. Played on hard difficulty which felt just right challenge wise.

 

got it full price on PS4 and very happy with it.
