Fans of the cult classic will be able to enjoy all of the same content as other platforms, including the speedrun mode that debuted on Xbox One earlier this year, as well as several of the iconic bosses players will face as they conquer the Devil’s Tower. Launched in 2017 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita from developer and publisher Dotemu, and later in 2019 on Xbox One, Ys Origin has been praised by international critics across all available platforms for its polish, modernization and memorable gameplay.
In Ys Origin, it is 700 years before the events of Ys I & II, and the land of Ys is on the brink of destruction. Demons arrived in droves and forced the twin Goddesses who ruled the land to whisk their subjects away from the surface, into the safe embrace of the clouds. The demons were persistent, however, erecting a massive tower in pursuit. The battle that raged upon the ground had begun ascending for a second round up above.
