Potions, tonics, herbs, and cure scrolls – forget about stocking up on those in Ys: The Oath in Felghana. While Adol could carry one healing herb and had a heal ring in Ys III, he’ll have to fight without a stash of healing items in Ys: The Oath in Felghana.
Enemies drop recovery items that refill Adol’s HP on the spot. These make dungeons easier, but Adol will have to defeat bosses with, in a best case scenario, a single life bar. A representative from Xseed assured players won’t have to replay an entire dungeon if they die at a boss. Checkpoints are plentiful, but you still need to learn the pattern of each boss instead of loading up on healing herbs.
Ys: The Oath in Felghana is scheduled to come out in North America this year.
