The rumors are true (and we’ve been waiting to tell you) that Ys: The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin are coming to Steam. Ys: The Oath in Felghana, a reimagining of Ys III: Wanderers from Ys, will be available with Steam Achievements and Steam Cloud support on March 19 for $14.99.
While most Ys games follow Adol and Dogi, Ys Origin takes place before their adventures. As a prequel to the entire series, Ys Origin takes place 700 years before the events in Ys I and focuses on the Black Pearl. The twin Goddesses are main characters along with a new cast of heroes that climb up Darm Tower. Ys Origin for Steam will be the first official English version of the game.
“People have been asking for Falcom’s great catalog of PC games to be officially made available in English for a long time,” said Jun Iwasaki, President of Xseed Games. “To start our new publishing arrangement on Steam with two standout entries from Falcom’s action-based Ys series, one of which has never been made available in English before, is an ideal situation for us, and we are excited about the future possibilities.”
