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…

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…

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…

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…

It's an updated version of the PS3/PS Vita JRPG from 2013, improving the visuals and adding 5,000 new lines of voiced dialogue.

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…

Senran Kagura Estival Versus brings booby brawls to PC

"I do want to post about Xseed's 'busty brawler' but only if I can find the unpleasant CGI megabreasts someone did a few years back," I muttered in the RPS treehouse today. "They were giant. Individual breasts, just loose skinblobs. They had some terrifying physics simulation going on. Anyone remember those?" "I don't," our Adam pipes up, "but I am thinking that if you do…

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…

Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel Coming To PC

I'm glad to see more Japanese fighting games come over from consoles because 1) they're a genre and origin traditionally under-represented here; 2) sometimes they are super weird and I adore that. So coo 'eck, crossover fighting game Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel [official site] is coming to Windows this winter. Made by Arcana Heart developers Examu, it brings together ladies from visual novel studio…

Little King’s Story Brings Feudal Fun Times Next Week

Little King's Story [official site] charmed the pants off of people when it was released on Wii in 2009, and it looks like it's prepared to do it all over again as it heads to PC next week. The new PC version brings with it improved graphics and controller support, which will make keeping those serfs in line much easier. Serfs, am I right?

Boo! Corpse Party Haunting PC This Month

Here's the thing: I'm sure I posted on RPS ages ago about Corpse Party [official site] coming to PC round our way, but I cannot find any trace of it. But why wouldn't I post about a game named Corpse Party? A ghost must have eaten the post. Only reasonable answer. Point is, publishers Xseed Games today announced that Corpse Party will be hitting Windows…

Duff Up And Derobe Otaku Vampires In Akiba’s Trip Demo

You probably already know whether you want to buy an RPG where a boy runs around Tokyo's otaku zone Akihabara killing vampires by beating them up until their clothes fall off and they evaporate. Ask yourself: "Do I want buy an RPG where a boy runs around Tokyo's otaku zone Akihabara killing vampires by beating them up until their clothes fall off and they evaporate?"…

Marvelous: Ys VI And Akiba’s Trip Coming To PC

Another two Japanese action-RPGs are coming our way from PlayStations via Xseed Games, the publisher announced last week, and they're certainly a curious pairing. Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim [official site] is from the long-running, well-received series Xseed have been trickling onto PC for a while now. Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed [official site], on the other hand, is about freeing Tokyo's otaku district…

Carpe Fulgur Localising Trails In The Sky SC

Is it odd that we report on the localisation work of one specific company? Regardless, the fallout from their last couple of pieces of work - Fortune Summoners, Chantelise, and Recettear - seem to make up for any oddness in localisation reporting. The news that Carpe Fulgur are now converting Trails in the Sky SC into our Anglo-Internet language is wholesome news. The odd things…

An Hour With Ys: The Oath In Felghana

Currently doing rather well for itself on the Steam bestsellers chart, XSEED's milk-eyed JRPG Ys: The Oath In Felghana has been recommended to me by various corners of the internet. If you can stand to hear me harp on for a moment, I can tell you a little about it. A little? Well, I only played about 60 minutes of it, but have one hour…
