First Look: Ys Celceta’s visual improvement

Ys IV toned up for PlayStation Vita remake. has gone live with its online preview of Ys Celceta: Sea of Trees, which is the first we’ve seen of the game since its Tokyo Game Show reveal last year.

Shown in the site’s low-res, watermarked shots is the town, a forest field, drama scenario, and battle. In the field, players will experience a morning, noon, and evening time cycle. In the forest, specifically, players will hear noises such as birds chirping to gain a sense of actual presence. In battle, players can attack using the face buttons, and direct party members by use of the touch screen. You will also be able to launch your opponent into the air and perform a group “Aerial Combo,” as well.

Ys Celceta is due for PlayStation Vita on September 27 in Japan. View the Famitsu shots below. To see what it looked like last year, see this story.
