XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., announced today that the remaster of the action RPG, Ys: Memories of Celceta, will be released in North America for PlayStation 4 in Spring 2020. Developed by Nihon Falcom as part of their long-running Ys series and originally released for PlayStation Vita, the PS4 remaster will support 60 FPS with full HD graphics and optimized controls to reproduce the touch screen functions of the “PS Vita” version. The company is also pleased to confirm that the PS4 version will support dual audio, allowing the game to be played with English voices or the original Japanese, and that this feature will be released as a free patch to the existing PC release in the near future.
The physical day 1 Ys: Memories of Celceta “Timeless Adventurer Edition” will be available for preorder soon for a MSRP of $39.99 at the XSEED Games Store and other participating retailers, and is the only version that will be available at retail at launch.
