Action-JRPG Ys: Memories of Celceta remembers it’s out on PC today

Nihon Falcom's long-running Ys series are pure gaming comfort food. Simple but solid fantasy adventure stories, fast, arcadey action, complex boss fights and great soundtracks. Yet another finds its way to PC today. Ys: Memories of Celceta was originally a PS Vita game (and one I've owned for many years), but regular localisation/porting outfit XSeed have done a lot of work polished it up for…

Ys: Memories of Celceta rumbles in the jungle July 25th

NIS America might have stumbled a bit with the PC launch of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, but previous publisher XSeed have stepped up to bat again for Nihon Falcom's long-running series of consistently entertaining action RPGs. Ys: Memories of Celceta was originally released for the PlayStation Vita, but their new version allows you to play it at full HD resolutions, at framerates as high…

NIS America promise fast fixes for Ys VIII’s many issues

After six months of delays to deal with technical issues, the PC version of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana finally launched yesterday, albeit to less-than-great public reaction. Not because it's a bad game - far from it - but because the PC version is plagued with bugs just not present in any other version of the game. Nonexistent Vsync, flickering lights, wonky controls and more have…

Ys VIII’s troubled PC port staggers into the limelight

They say good things come to those who wait, but perhaps the release of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana could have gone back into the oven a little bit longer. The six-month-delayed PC port (first to completely re-translate the game, then to deal with a rising tide of technical issues) has finally made it to launch, though after looking at the first wave of public…

Ys: Memories Of Celceta adventuring to PC this summer

Nihon Falcom's RPG series Ys is continuing its meandering journey over to PC piece-by-piece, with 2012's Ys: Memories Of Celceta due to officially find its way from PlayStation Vita to PC in summer 2018. I've no experience with the series myself but people speak fondly of it and seem glad when more games come to PC so good, here's some good news for such people.…

Ys VIII delayed on PC again to fix performance problems

For a second time, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana has been delayed mere days before it was due to launch on PC. Nihon Falcom's JRPG had been due in September 2017 but was delayed one day before launch, and this new delay comes eleven days before the latest launch date. This time, publishers NIS America are being quite open: it's delayed again because the game…

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana hits PC on January 30th

The PC version of Nihon Falcom's RPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will arrive on January 30th, publishers NIS America have announced. This is almost five months after the console version but, unlike that, the PC release won't launch with shoddy localisation. The original English script was so wonky that NISA have been reworking it to fix typos, errors, and clunky translation, and re-recording dialogue…

Falcom action-RPG Zwei: The Arges Adventure returns to PC shores in English

While Ys 8's PC release might have slipped back to next year, we've plenty of Nihon Falcom games to chew on for now anyway. And yet another is coming our way soon too, Zwei: The Arges Adventure. Due to be the Japanese RPG studio's 15th release on Steam, Zwei: The Arges Adventure was originally a PC game, although like many of Falcom's past games it…

Ys VIII’s PC release slips to 2018 to allow for total re-translation

It would seem that 'measure twice, cut once' isn't just good woodworking advice. NIS America's localisation of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa Of Dana, the latest in Nihon Falcom's long-running action-RPG series, has now been judged so wobbly by the publisher that they're delaying the PC release to allow for a complete 'from the ground up' rework of the English script and voice track. There is at…

Ys VIII’s PC launch will boast a better localisation

There is one unexpected benefit to the PC version of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana [official site] being delayed: ours won't launch with wonky localisation. Western publishers NIS America have apologised for the poor state of the game's localisation when it hit consoles in September -- when it was originally due to hit PC too -- with oddities, errors, and assorted wonk. Fresh folks are…

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana PC delayed at short notice

If you had been looking forward to playing Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana [official site] today, I'm sorry to tell you that it has been delayed. Nihon Falcom's JRPG was supposed to launch on PC today alongside its console counterparts, but publishers NIS America announced only last night that the PC version will be late. They don't offer an update release date and say the…

Nihon Falcom’s JRPG Ys Seven makes the jump to PC

Nihon Falcom’s flashy slashy JRPG Ys Seven [official site] is now out on PC, eight years after it first arrived on the PSP. It's largely the same game as the handheld version upscaled for bigger screens, just with a refreshed translation from the Japanese original. It should run at 60fps at a variety of resolutions and it supports both keyboard-and-mouse and controllers. All good stuff. You've got control of a three-man party…

Ys Seven coming to PC this summer

Nihon Falcom's 2009 game Ys Seven [official site] is making the jump from the PSP handheld to PC. We've been slowly catching up on the series on PC, and the next one will actually launch on the same day as its western console counterparts, so it's nice to fill in the gaps. I've not played any Ys but do hear good things from folks who…

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel coming to PC

Nihon Falcom's The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel [official site] will come to PC this summer, publishers Xseed Games have announced, four years after its console debut. Trails of Cold Steel kicks off a new sub-series in Falcom's sprawling Legend of Heroes series but no, sadly its Cold Steel is nothing to do with the sword-swinging YouTube stars. Xseed also confirmed that the…

Nihon Falcom’s Xanadu Next Finally In English On PC

Xanadu Next [official site], an action-RPG by The Legend of Heroes and Ys series developers Nihon Falcom, has finally received an official English version - 11 years after its original release. Well, it's finally received an official English version that isn't on the ha-ha-hilarious Nokia N-Gage game-o-phone. The noughties, eh? What a curious half-way for pocket phone technology. Point is: if you fancy more Falcom-y…

Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure Comes Our Way

Just the other day I was talking about another action-RPG from Japanese developers Nihon Falcom coming our way (Ys VI, there), when lawks a lummy look! Another one's already here, as an English translation of Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure [official site] launched yesterday. It's a cutesy adventure about a girl, her monster friends (who are invisible to adults, obvs), and her magical drill. Together, they…
