Falcom is porting Ys I&II to the PSP in July. Great, but Ys I&II has been adapted for so many platforms what makes Ys I&II Chronicles different? This version of Ys Books I&II is based on the 2001 PC release. Players will have a choice between the PC 8801 audio and a rearranged soundtrack made for Ys I&II Chronicles, that’s the name of the PSP game. Character artwork is being touched up as well and, like the music, you can switch between the PC and PSP portraits.

 

Ys experts can test their skill in nightmare mode while novice wanderers can choose easy mode. Ys I&II Chronicles will have a total of four difficult modes and a boss rush to play. Is this worth 5,040 yen ($50). Before you answer see how the PC art stacks up to the PSP.
