Today, DotEmu announced that Ys Origin, the cult classic Japanese role-playing game (JRPG), launches on Xbox One on April 11, 2018. The game was previously only available on PC, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation 4, so this is the first time the franchise is available on an Xbox platform. Ys Origin on Xbox One also features exclusive content like an all-new speedrun mode and a "blood option" which lets players choose the level of gore.
Ys Origin originally launched in 2006 and garnered relatively positive reviews. Hopefully this upgraded version for Xbox One fixes a lot of the issues which plagued the original. While the game may still be roughly ten-hours long, it's still an interesting JRPG even to this day.
Ys Origin takes place 700 years before the events of the first games when the land of Ys was on the brink of destruction. Demons came in droves and forced the twin goddesses to whisk their subjects away from the surface, into the clouds. The demons erected a massive tower in pursuit and that's where the story takes place.
The new trailer released today reveals the first footage of Ys Origin's speedrun mode, as well as several of the legendary bosses players will face as they conquer the "Devil's Tower". The game lets players explore a deeply involved mystery and unlock secrets through creative puzzles as they trek through a memorable arcade-like platformer and unravel the truth.
