While most of Nihon Falcom’s classic Ys series has been ported to Steam in some fashion, several entries have yet to be given the upgraded PC treatment. Ys Seven is among those games, and this is despite it being one of the most popular in the series since its resurgence about a decade ago.
For now, Ys Seven is stuck as a digital PSP release and can only be enjoyed on a PS Vita at this point. All that changes this summer when XSEED releases the game on PC with updated visuals and improved performance. The publisher showed off eleven minutes of footage during its announcement streaming event this weekend.
Fans of the cult-series who love this entry will certainly love this news. Many enjoy Ys Seven for its story, which is unusually long for an Ys game, and they also appreciate being able to control Adol Christin’s longtime, muscular sidekick Dogi for the very first time. Even after Ys: Memories of Celceta turned out to be a hit for the Vita, many still stood by Ys Seven as the superior game.
Take this chance to get acquainted with the series along with Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, which launches on Sept. 12 for the PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC.
