About the PlayStation 4 Version

The PlayStation 4 remaster of Ys: Memories of Celceta will support 60 frames per second with full HD visuals and optimized gamepad controls. Following the recent addition of the original Japanese voices to the Windows PC version of the title, Ys: Memories of Celceta will launch for PlayStation 4 with support for both English and Japanese voice options. As legendary adventurer Adol Christin, explore the expansive land of Celceta, one of the largest locales in the Ys series, with the help of a robust mapping system to assist players in their travels through the wilderness. The classic Ys action combat, including the multi-character party system, has never looked better on consoles.

About the Game

Remembering nothing but his name, Adol Christin awakens to find himself in the town of Casnan—a bustling frontier village at the edge of an endless sea of trees and untamed wilderness. Bereft of past and purpose, he is left to wander the town until a mysterious information dealer named Duren who claims to know him joins Adol on a sudden mission to rid the local mine of monsters. This unexpected quest reawakens Adol’s instincts as an accomplished swordsman, and their exploits quickly attract the attention of Griselda, a Romun Army general stationed in the town. Impressed with their skills, she enlists the pair to assist in mapping the Great Forest of Celceta—a task many have attempted but from which none have ever returned alive. Far from the frontier’s edge, Adol and Duren must brave the dangers of Celceta while constantly keeping watch for any clues that may help Adol recover his lost memories. More importantly, Adol must use his best judgment to decide who he can trust and who is taking advantage of his lost memories to deceive him…
