Ys: Memories Of Celceta Slated For Fall Release On Vita

By Spencer . January 31, 2013 . 4:12am


Xseed also picked up Falcom’s reimagining of Ys IV. Ys: Memories of Celceta begins with an amnesiac Adol Christin and without Dogi. The goal of the game is to restore Adol’s memories by entering the Sea of Trees. Falcom’s president talked to us about the changes in the story and we fought one of the game’s bosses.


Ys: Memories of Celceta is scheduled to come out this fall on PlayStation Vita.

    We Really DO love you Xseed…y’know that right?

    *hugs Xseed*

    • Syn

      You forgot to put sugar lumps on top of those hugs and kisses (^_^)/

  • Now I don’t have second thoughts when I look to my PSVita. :D A great week for PSVita owners indeed. Someone have to bring Seran kagura to the west.

    • Peeka Chu

      I never had second thoughts. Those “I sold my Vita” N4G articles and the spastic consumers who drop hardware after the 1st year, only to pick it up again the next always make me laugh. No system is “great” in its first year. The 3DS’ first year lineup was horrid, especially for non-Mario fans. But I held onto it, and it paid off, and will continue to do so. Same with the Vita, or any other system. Second and third year are when the games really start flowing and we see all sorts of new IPs and bold moves from publishers.

      • Pyrotek85

        I think it’s been that way for nearly every system I can remember. Maybe it’s the younger generation that’s doing this mostly?

      • sherimae1324

        your right about that oni-chan ^_^

      • Göran Isacson

        Although one can argue that those who sell it off and then buy it back, probably buy it back at a lower price and as such haven’t lost that much money in the overall process.

        • Peeka Chu

          You’re always losing money, especially on software and peripherals/ memory cards (particularly for the Vita on that front). I’ve seen people buy back the same games that they sold even. Unless, of course, you wait so long that a model refresh comes out. But the fickelest of consumers really don’t wait for deals, they operate on an “I want now” mentality – frugality and patience aren’t virtues that they have.

          • Pyrotek85

            I always wondered if I’m weird about keeping my games forever. Some people don’t think twice about trading in games once the new generation rolls around, but the thought has never occurred to me. I guess I just consider it more a collective than a mere pastime.

      • almostautumn

        I thought Vita had the strongest first year of any system… ever. It certainly had the best launch line-up of all time.

  • Peeka Chu

    Ha! Nailed it in the guessing thread! Now I win the grand internet prize for wild speculation!

    • Syn

      here you go sir, an Internetz for your hard work ( ^_^)= 1010101010101010

      • Close the Internetz, we have a winner! ٩(○̮̮̃•̃)۶

  • Go2hell66

    Yeaaaaa! finally a decent action rpg for vita!!!!

    • Peeka Chu

      Did you play RO? That was good.

      • Go2hell66

        of course i did, 100 hours of it in fact

  • Retail release? Yes?

  • Peeka Chu

    Ooh! Vallhalla Knights 3 is coming too! (Siliconera is a bit slow with the news wire today)

  • Zal_Yagun

    Smokin Jesus titty Cinnamon. January officially the best month of the Generation

  • Niyari

    thank you for not making me regret buying a vita for two games, xseed. /tear

  • Elvick

    Praise be to Yevon!

  • Shaun Huseman

    This along with Persona 4 has made the Vita purchase worth it no matter what

  • XSEED is glorious bacon of light!!!

    • KyoyaHibari

      *beacon lol

      • AnimusVox

        Or ‘bacon’ :L

        • KyoyaHibari

  • Peeka Chu

    So let’s recap. YS: C, Vallhalla Knights 3, Soul Sacrifice, Phantasy Star 2, Muramasa, Dragon Crown, Tearaway, Killzone V (which is getting awesome previews and made by actual 1st party devs, not second rate ones). I’m forgetting some, and we’re short on announcements from Gung Ho, Aksys, Atlus and NISA, so it should be a flush year for the Vita. I’m pretty sure we’ll be getting Tales R too. Just have a hunch. Maybe SE will finally do something on the Vita, even a port of Type-O or LoA in English would be nice, but I don’t have much hope for that.

    Vita could be my go-to system for 2013. We’ll see.

    • I don’t think Bamco would dare bring over Tales of Hearts R or Innocence R. It’s fun to dream, though.

      • TheExile285

        Bamco isn’t gonna give NA any of their games. They basically confirmed that when they said no Pirate Warriors 2 for West. Shame because I want God Eater 2 but atleast Vita is region free so I can import it :P

        • Peeka Chu

          Well D3 (Bamco’s subsidiary) brought over WKC 2 and God Eater, so I’m pretty confident we’ll get GE 2 on the Vita (even a digital PSP version would be a waste really).

          • Randgriz

            Exactly and we even got Earth Defence Force from D3 a few weeks ago. If that isnt telling of versitility then i dont know what is. God Eater 2 – western release is a sure-fire release.

    • shion16

      Dead or Alive 5 , Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus 2 and Muramasa too

    Holy Aethos! YeS!

  • Dear XSEED Games you are making it really hard for me to buy games this year. Especially because I am still missing another handheld to play your planned releases! Now I might have to pass on other games to afford your stuff! GNH too many japan games in 2013… … need to rob a bank.

    Sometimes… I wish I could have the “pay day” skill of meowth…

  • badmoogle

    That’s awesome!

  • LustEnvy


  • roxas sora

    x seed localisation A.K.A reason to buy vita and 3ds

  • MooPoint


    Proceed by jumping and dancing in the apartment.

  • almostautumn

    Thank youuuuuuuuuu!

    Anyone else check out the demo? I was really impressed by the environments; they bear a certain gloss that doesn’t detract or minimize the woodland colors, and just sort of “brings out” everything, from leaves to tree roots. Thought it was really cool.
    Oh, and the game is f-ing awesome also.

  • epy

    Excellent news. I think this will finally push me over the edge.

  • Dede Ogbe

    just a question, does this game have dlc? so i know whether i should wait for a europe annoucement (god knows when) or just import it

  • Waka The Baka

    My fucking god…..did XSeed really just announce that they’re getting these games for Murrika or am I tripping?

  • noctis_nox

    damn! really a great week for Vita.
    Now wake me up when September ends.

  • TheExile285


    I so worried this would not get localized. Also, this probably means we will get some neat Special Edition. I will definitely be buying it! ^_^

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I really need to get Vita ASAP here. This alone is probably going to make me get one Vita here.^_^

  • I have to get a Vita I promised that when this game gets localized I would.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Soooooooooo glad I didn’t import! Phew!

  • AWESOME WEEK for vita

  • dahuuuundge

    I’LL TAKE 20

  • ekibyougami

    Xseed and Aksys are such bros ;__;


  • AlteisenX

    …My god. It is a beautiful day. The snow is coming down in storm form, and I wake up late for class. I get there, and find this amazing (expected eventually) news, and this is now an awesome day.

  • tubers

    I’m definitely getting this! Ys 7 was such a nice portable action rpg :D

  • tubers

    I wonder if there’s gonna be dubbing.. at least Japanese.

    • Rol

      It’s Xseed, so an original voice track is highly doubtful unfortunately.

  • fds_nextdart

    Two RPGs coming to the West both announced in one day? I must be dreaming~.

  • Andrew A

    Hopefully this’ll be a physical release…

  • kaizin

    happy to see the vita getting more spotlight makes me happy i got one I hope we get GE2

  • Ephidiel


    i always believed they would localize it. Good goind XSeed
    Favorite Company of the year already

  • TatsuyaKyo

    OHHH, so Adol is the “amnesiac” they were referring to. Xseed, you glorious schemers you…

  • This and RF4 is a must buy XD

  • This is going to be great!!!! So I got 2 major vita games this fall. Killzone and now this. How am I going to keep my gpa up with my last semester of college. :P

  • Oh no… *tears of joy*

  • Pythia Brixham

    XSEED Games is my only faith left in humanity. This is why.

  • Kefkiroth

    Absolutely loved playing Ys Seven on my Vita, I’m planning to play the other canon Ys games in preparation for this. It looks amazing.

  • Xseed, your right up there with NISA!

  • NeoAthanasius

    There is so much Xseed love emanating from my apartment right now. My fellow Portlanders have taken to the street scavenging for bacon. It’s a beautiful sight! ;-)

  • Don

    oh yeah!

  • Any news on this game for Eur…nvm.

    • Europeans only buy used or pirate games apparently.

      • Raharu95

        That sounds more like South America

  • MrTyrant

    This a good year for JRPG. Thanks Xseed for helping in this.

  • esteban cartagena

    day one buy for me. Xseed has my total support.

  • Eric Harris

    excellent, hopefully they grace us with physical since it should be cheap to manifacture a tiny blue case without any manual.

  • Noooo! It cant be !! My friend told me the vita had no games so i bought a Wii U and now, vita has games !! FUUUUUUUUU !!!

  • Carlos Daniel Flores Loreto


  • Demeanor

    XSEED is on a roll! With Ys and Killer is Dead, they’ve secured two sure buys from me. ^ ^ Now, about that Trails 2… XD

  • Daniel Elak

    XSeed really is one of the only localization companies I can rely on these days. I will always buy their Ys products!

    • Eric Harris

      Really, you don’t like Aksys, or Atlus, NISA? Heck even Namcobandai is turning into a localizing powerhouse.

  • AnimusVox


  • Carocaro4

    Goodness. It’s been a while since I’ve squealed after some gaming news.good job XSEED. :)

  • Well in, Xseed! A great game finally comes our way. Guess I’ll start saving up for a Vita too now.

  • Ryan Chiu

    I knew it was only a matter of time. LOVE YOU XSEED!

  • LightZero

    Good now if only Legend of Heroes SC can be announce for this year too.
