By Spencer . November 1, 2013 . 2:14am

imageFalcom just released a patch for Ys: Memories of Celceta that makes the Vita game compatible with PlayStation Vita TV. PS Vita TV is a device that allows users to play select Vita games on a TV using a DualShock controller.


Ys: Memories of Celceta modified parts that used the touch pad to support button prompts. The patch also improves draw processing speed.


Xseed has Ys: Memories of Celceta slated for release on November 26 in North America. NIS America will publish the game in Europe.

    You know what else would be nice? A solid US release date.

    • Go2hell66

      i thought november 26 was the release date

      • Placeholder. Xseed mentioned that might be the earliest date we can expect.

          I hope it is! I’ve got some dollars reserved just in case.

    • EinMugenTenshin

      No love for the EU? :(

  • Vita TV, here I go =D

    • No kidding! This was one of the games I really wanted to play on the Vita so VitaTV, bring it on!
      And more VitaTV patches please!

  • Happy Thanksgiving to me! 11/26 can’t come soon enough.

    Is this a sequel related to the other games in the series?
    Or is this more of a standalone title that doesn’t require previous knowledge of the other games to fully get what’s going on?

    • Missingkeys

      I think it takes place directly of Ys: The oath in Felghana since Dogi isn’t with him and that time period is the only one time when they part ways. Ys 1 doesn’t count since it’s the start of all.

      • Sapitntapit

        I have Felghana and Origins but my computer crashes whenever I play them, I was hoping that I would be able to just hop into this one.

        • Don’t worry too much. Adol loses all his memories in this game and the story is seemingly pretty well self-contained.
          Ys doesn’t do too much in terms of coehesive plotline between each game outside neat references so you are good to go.

          • Sapitntapit

            Awesome, so I might pick this up then. Great, ANOTHER game in November that I want.

          • You should definitely pick it up!
            Unlike other series like Metal Gear and Kingdom Kudzu Plot Hearts you won’t feel like “okay what the hell?” if you jump into Ys games out of order.
            The only titles that you should play in order are Ys1 and 2 since they are direct sequels.
            And I personally recommend playing Origins after Ys1 and 2 since certain things will be spoiled for you.

            The rest of the adventures are pretty neatly self contained and are more like episodic adventures of Adol (and Dogi in most games!).

          • Sapitntapit

            Sweet, thanks for all the info!

    • Rafael Budzinski

      …it’s a remake of the fourth entry on the series. Originally, it have some relation with some previous games, but to be honest, I think it’s okay to play it without having play’d the 3 games.

    • Ephidiel

      thats the good thing about the Ys series its a Yes and No.
      You surely can play each Ys game without knowledge or the previous ones BUT alot of stuff makes much more sense. For Example some things that are Mentioned in “Oath in Felghana(YsIII)” are actually explored in “Ark of Naphistim(YsVI)” or the Woods of Celceta are actually mentioned in YsI&II and finalyl being able to travel through them is what makes the Ys series really worthwhile and playing the games in order or out of order still gives you an amazing adventure with the Father of All Badasses Adol Christin.
      Seriously whereever he is going there is always shit happening and always a Damsel in Distress XD.
      I really hope Falcom will let us explore the Romun Empire in Ys8 or make a godly remake of Ys V

  • In cases like this, where the game’s Japanese version gets patched, it would be nice to use the Japanese title (Ys: Foliage Ocean in Celceta). We don’t know if this is going to be included in the XSEED release, nor do we have a VitaTV announcement out of Japan, no?

    EDIT: or at least make it clear from the beginning that the English version is not involved, please.

  • Ahhh, that sounds great! I hope we get word on the TVita soon enough. I’d really like to play this at some point on a TV, too.

  • Ryujin

    I just hope that “early 2014” release for Europe is early early 2014, if you get what I mean. Can’t wait to finally play this.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Glad I pre-ordered it months ago :)

  • MoriyaMug

    This patch is being released on November 7th. It’s not available yet.

    • Erwin MadJelly

      Perhaps it’s patched for japan version.. US Version patch will come soon..

  • Chido55

    Tbh, I never heard of this series until this year, where a friend posted his Falcom tracks related, which I find very enjoyable. So I scour around for OST actually, then I stumbled on Foliage Ocean of Celceta albums. As I having some great eargasm with False God of Causality, later I found out there is a game coming for Vita.

    Totally getting it, and it shall be my first Ys, sadly.
    Already planning to get VitaTV for Soul Sacrifice, so this news is just another creamy topping vanilla on my intent. I love vanilla <3
