Dotemu bringing Ys Origin to Nintendo Switch in 2020

Dotemu has announced that Ys Origin will launch for Nintendo Switch sometime in 2020. A physical retail release of the game will be available through Limited Run Games as well as some European retailers, in both Standard and Collector's formats. Pre-orders through Limited Run will open tomorrow.


Ys Origin originally released for PC in Japan in 2006, which acts as the chronological first entry in the long-standing Ys RPG series. The RPG saw its original English release on Steam in 2012 via XSEED Games, and Dotemu then later released PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Xbox One versions.
