    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).

    Steam/GOG have pretty much all the best versions of the games avaible aside from the excellent PC-Engine version of Ys 4 which has been fantranslated.

    Since the game mechanics change every ~3 or so games you might end up enjoying certain ones while absolutely hating others.
    Most people seem to agree that the Ys 6 engine "trilogy" ( Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim, Ys: The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin ) is the pinnacle of the series though.

    If you absolutely have to play them in chronological order my recommendations would be:
    Origin: Steam/GOG version
    1: Steam/GOG version
    2: Steam/GOG version
    4: PC-Engine with fan translation.
    3: Ys: The Oath in Felghana
    5: Snes version
    8: PS4 or Vita unless NISA gets it's shit together at somepoint.
    6: Steam/GOG version
    7: Steam/GOG version

    (Note that 4 is about to get it's remake, Celceta, released on Steam soon. And it will most probably have a good port as it's handled by Xseed.
    Also note that 5 is shit and you can easily just skip it over)

    (Also also note that Oath in Felghana is the best Ys title and you should play it first)


    (On Hard or Nightmare, as it unlocks further, more hype boss patterns)

    All the prior Falcom PC ports were fine what did they do different? Talk about a self-own.

    Also what is up with Steam's controller support? PC controllers are a solved problem; I have been using the same 360 controller for 10 years, works with every game seamlessly without having to do anything.

    Suddenly Steam wants to take over controller support and you have to manually enable it, set a configuration, and play in the ghey-ass big picture mode, and half the time it doesn't fucking work anyway. God dammit.

    More reason to go with GOG I guess.
