"Ys X" teased info teased for July 7 issue of Weekly Famitsu
Weekly Famitsu No. 1751, releasing June 23 - though dated for July 7 - has been added to the Kadokawa online store, and the description for the upcoming issue has teased information on the next Ys title, previously confirmed to be Ys X in Falcom Magazine #122. The description in question is translated as follows:
[Feature] In celebration of the Ys franchise's 35th anniversary, we're planning to look back on and reminisce over the series' impact and history alongside some key visuals, from Ys I to Ys IX. Furthermore, an interview with Falcom's own Toshihiro Kondo, where we'll learn more about the series' next entry!?
You don't get much clearer than that! It's still up in the air exactly what sort of information Famitsu will drop, and with it still being a few weeks away it's hard to make any guesses. It's likely we won't get any major reveals while Kuro no Kiseki II: Crimson Sin is still awaiting its release in Japan, but we'll have to wait and see exactly what Falcom is ready to announce for Adol Christin's next adventure.
We reviewed Ys IX: Monstrum Nox's western release last year, with impressions of the PC release coming afterward. Needless to say, we enjoyed our time with it, so we're eagerly awaiting information about the next game as much as anyone else is.
A big thanks to Twitter user Hansuke for bringing the page to our attention, and an additional thanks to Twitter user Gu4n for the information from Falcom Magazine #122!
