    Men, which of the three swords I should upgrade to maximum for Ark of Napishtim's endgame? [​IMG]

    I'm playing on hard where the final upgrades costs 250000 each and I don't have the time or patience to farm 500000 more, as 250000 already took a while. I have the final dungeon and optional bosses left.

    I personally find the lightning sword to be most useful for both it's attack animation and homing electricity special attack but the wind sword's spin attack is good too.
    Fire sword on other hand kinda stinks and it's only useful for the long range special attack imo.

    Edit: Also if you're a masochist the lightning sword's special attack is the best way to beat that godawful hidden super boss.

    They should've thrown in a "Deus Vult" with that typo.

    Fixed localization, eh?
    Seems like the game is totally borked with several bugs , locked internal resolution and a €55 price point are only the icing on the top.

    why does footage of Ys 5 (ps2 remake) and Ys 6 and its spin-offs look better than footage of the more recent Ys 7 and 8?

    To think I held off buying the Vita version for this. Welp, Vita it is then.

    What are the odds this game actually gets patched, vs becoming a complete localisation orphan like Nier Automata and has to get fanpatched?

    Seems like YS was shoved out the door like an orphan child who has been written off but has to be shipped because legal contract and the game is probably going to sell like a dog.

    Hopefully this means NIS will never get localisation work ever again.

    Wishful thinking my man. NISA undercuts everyone else which is why they keep getting work.

    Wait, didn't they delay it earlier for the exact same problem?

    Nope. They delayed it to fix the localization. Not only did they make it worse, they broke the game as well. But that's par course for NISA really. They are known to break games while translating it. The Witch and the Hundred Knight shipped in the west with a save corruption bug that was curiously absent from the JP release.

    Man this is a whole new level of stupid, they could have sweeped the floor with the awards if we had video game company Razzies.

    They delayed the game which indicates they knew it was in a shoddy state of affairs.

    They also said they would fix the localisation.

    That they chose to release it like this, and say "Hey guys, we'll give you a patch", is highly revealing. These people do not deserve your money.

    Fortunately I don't care much about the Ys series, but I dearly love the Trails games and would be heartbroken if they went to NISA. We know what to expect if they get the licence. Shitty ports, crappy localisation, zero fucks given.

    Why are there so many freaking remakes of the first two titles? Which Ys games should I play? Apparently Ys 5 PS2 remake is not actually a remake at all but a completely different game?

    Can someone post a Ys series title list for me? Which remakes are the go-to ones?

    We've done similar discussions in the Dragon Quest thread(s) and the Final Fantasy thread(s).
