Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana releases for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 in Japan on May 23
Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana is an enhanced port of 2005's Ys: The Oath In Felghana (which itself is a remake of Ys III: Wanderers from Ys.) The port hit Nintendo Switch in the region last April.
Just as the Switch version did, this new port contains the following enhancements:
- Improved sound effects and HD visuals
- Fully voiced events & a new voice for Adol Christin (CV: Yuki Kaji)
- A toggle between newly drawn "Refine" character portraits or the original portraits from the PC/PSP versions
- Three toggleable soundtracks: Original (PC/PSP) version, PC-8801 version, and X68000 version (these OSTs were added to the PC version in a 2020 update)
- A High-Speed Mode that allows battle and field movement to be sped up to 1.5x or 2.0x speed.
- Support for beginner-mode type functionality, including removal of fall damage.
The Japanese retail version will also contain the following:
- A reversible cover, which contains art from the original The Oath in Felghana.
- A soundtrack CD containing music tracks from the PC-8801 version of Wanderers from Ys.
- This soundtrack will also be available digitally for early purchasers.
Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana has not yet been announced for release in the West. XSEED Games originally localized the PC and PSP versions of the game. We recently learned of another Falcom port making its way west with Tokyo Xanadu on Switch, so hopefully Ys Memoire is not too far behind.
