Dotemu has announced that Ys Origin will be coming to Nintendo Switch in 2020. Players will be able to purchase either a digital or physical edition of the game when pre-orders open up later today. The physical edition is being produced by Limited Run Games and will offer buyers two choices. The Standard Edition includes the game itself. The Collector’s Edition includes a poster, a physical copy of the game, a physical copy of the soundtrack, an artbook, and a collector’s box.
The game is the first in the series where humans are fleeing a demon horde and offers players an “exciting blend of combo-focused,l arcade-paced combat, platforming, and challenging puzzles”.
Players join aspiring knight Yunica Tovah and mage Hugo Fact, two fighters desperately searching for the Goddesses that have abandoned them. Together the duo must best the demonic forces lurking within an enormous tower before the beasts reach humanity’s sanctuary in the clouds. With tons of powerful loot to earn, distinct scenarios, and playstyles between each character as well as secrets to unveil, the game is a deep, compelling RPG experience.
