Ys Origin Comes to Nintendo Switch This Year

The 2006 action-RPG cult classic, Ys Origin, is coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year, along with a fancy physical edition from Limited Run Games!

Nintendo Switch is getting some more, classic, JRPG goodness later this year, as Dotemu has announced Ys Origin will be arriving on the console later this year. Players will be able to snag it direct through the eShop, or can pick up a physical version (or even the Collector’s Edition) from Limited Run Games:

Publisher Dotemu today announced Ys Origin, the action RPG saga’s inaugural quest in which humanity flees a demon horde’s relentless pursuit, will reach the Nintendo Switch later this year. Fans in North America can choose between one of two physical versions from Limited Run Games as part of a global distribution for Ys Origin’s physical Nintendo Switch release, or experience the modernized classic through the eShop.

Ys Origin will introduce Switch owners to the series’ exciting blend of combo-focused, arcade-paced combat, platforming, and challenging puzzles.

Fans who opt for Limited Run Games’ releases can choose between a standard version and a special collector’s edition which includes a poster, a physical copy of the game’s stirring soundtrack, an art book capturing scenes from Ys Origin’s surreal world, and a unique collector’s box. Demon slayers can keep tabs on both versions and their eventual release by following Limited Run Games: https://twitter.com/LimitedRunGames

Ys Origin joins 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, Ys Origin is a deep, compelling RPG experience.
