Tetracast - Episode 188: All About That Ys

Welcome to the latest edition of the Tetracast, RPG Site's regular, seemingly weekly, podcast!

In this episode, James dives into his thoughts on the newly released Atelier Ryza 2, which he believes improves on the first entry in every way. George works on his backlog as he finalizes his thoughts on Immortals Fenyx Rising. Josh recently reviewed Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, and the crew dives deep into the latest entry. To cap off this section, the team also touches on the demo for Balan Wonderworld, as a few thoughts on Final Fantasy III.

The topical section is brief this week. Biomutant finally has a release date of May 25. Koei Tecmo has given some sales updates for Nioh 2, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, and Atelier Ryza 2. Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin has sold 850,000 copies. A few smaller updates on Magic: Legends, Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood, and Blade & Soul Revolution. The episode ends with a brief chat about Toshihiro Nagoshi stepping down from his CCO role at Sega.
