Developer DotEmu has announced that they will be releasing Ys Origin on the Nintendo Switch on October 1.
The game will be available on the Nintendo eShop that day. Those who would like a physical copy will be able to get one through Limited Run Games in both a standard and collector’s edition.
Ys Origin has been out on Steam since May 2012, PlayStation 4 since February 2017, PlayStation Vita since May 2017, and Xbox One since April 2018. The Switch version will include all the same content as those versions including the speedrun mode that first showed up in the Xbox One 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.
