PlayStation Vita exclusive Ys: Memories of Celceta launches today in North America. Following the daily pre-release character vignettes of the last week, XSEED has one final trailer starring the main protagonist, Adol Christin.
XSEED goes through a brief history of the 25 year old series on the PlayStation Blog, detailing the origins of the series and how the games have evolved over the years. Most importantly, XSEED discusses how most Ys titles can be enjoyed independantly, and that Celceta is as good a place as any to jump into the series.
"Ys: Memories of Celceta is an absolutely ideal starting point for those who’ve never played an Ys game before. Modern mechanics and visuals mix with new arrangements of classic music and themes to create a game that truly showcases what’s kept this series going strong for over a quarter of a century." -Tom Lipschultz - Localization Specialist at XSEED Games

Those in Europe will have to wait for Ys: Memories of Celceta to release sometime in early 2014, published by Nippon Ichi Software America.
