We first became acquainted with the Y's series way back on our beautiful TurboGrafx-16 with it's super advanced Hu-Card technology. Since then the series has chugged along for over two decades mostly residing deep in the underbelly where only hardcore RPGers and Japanophiles live.


That's a bit of a shame, because the action in Ys is really fun and a lot more engaging than your typical RPG. Because the game is so niche its become a bit of a surprise when they get localized over here so we're happy to see that actual screens of the upcoming Vita title Ys: Memories of Celceta were released! So happy we had to upload them instantly! Check them out if your eyes can handle it...

XSEED also came out and released a whole hos of information about some of the characters you'll meet (and see in the screenshots) so if you want to immerse yourself into the tradition of the world take a few minutes to read them over.

Adol Christin
The Ys series’ stalwart protagonist, Adol Christin is perhaps the most famous adventurer ever to have lived. Adol is a young man brimming with curiosity who constantly seeks the thrill of discovery and the wonders of new lands. This time around, however, the challenge is quite different – Adol is seeking to solve the mysteries of his own past.

Duren
Duren is an information dealer whom Adol encounters at a bar in Casnan. He claims to have met Adol before – though with no memory, Adol remains skeptical. An extremely kind-hearted man (though he'd never admit it), Duren can't bring himself to walk away from someone in need, making him a perfect travel companion.

Karna
Karna is a cheerful, honest young girl who lives in the treetop village of Comodo. An extremely skilled huntress, she puts most of the other hunters in the village to shame with her accuracy and cunning talent. Her weapon of choice is the throwing knife, though she has an unfortunate habit of throwing first and asking questions later...

Ozma
A resident of the village of Selray, and the sole remaining member of the tribe which cares for the sacred beasts known as Spardas. Though young, Ozma acts as the village’s leader and has managed to uphold its peaceful ways for as long as he's been in charge. Reliable, level-headed and dedicated, he is loved and respected by all of the village’s residents. While extremely stubborn and inflexible when it comes to the laws of his tribe, he is also extremely loyal to the people in his charge.

Calilica
Calilica is an energetic, curious young girl who is mature beyond her years in many regards. She harbors something of a complex about her age and youthful appearance, and is constantly seeking to be recognized as an adult by those around her. She looks up to Leeza as an older sister, and has been with her since they were both children. As such, she will hold back at nothing if she can be of assistance to her.

Interesting stuff... interesting stuff indeed.
