Falcom announced two new games at a fan event in Tokyo over the weekend: Ys Seven
and Ys I & II Chronicles
. According to Dengeki Online
, Ys Seven
will feature series hero Adol again, and will follow the story of the "Five Great Dragons of Altago." It's expected to hit Japan sometime this fall. As for Ys I & II Chronicles
, not much is known about it, but it could be another remake like the recent Legacy of Ys: Books I & II
for DS. That one will be out in Japan by summer.
suspects that Ys Seven
might be a game for Sony platforms, seeing as the title will be featured in an upcoming issue of Dengeki PlayStation
magazine. Falcom did release Ys: The Ark of Nephistim
on PSP and PS2 back in 2006, so it's not too much of a long shot to see the next in the series appear on either system (or both).
