Publisher XSEED Games is bringing Ys: Memories of Celceta to PS Vita this holiday season, and today a limited edition was announced in addition to the standard $39.99 version. The LE celebrates over 25 years of Ys with a 3-CD collection of original and arranged music from the franchise, a cloth map of Celceta, a logo-emblazoned compass, and 'Adol's Travel Journal.'
The journal includes strategies and artwork, and the full package will be priced at $59.99.
Ys: Memories of Celceta reimagines 1993's Ys IV, which never made its way to the west in its original form. Nihon Falcom reworked the game from the ground up, even going so far as to change the framing of the story to make for a more intriguing tale. Here's XSEED's brief plot synopsis:
Soon after red-haired series hero Adol Christin awakens on the outskirts of the Great Forest of Celceta with no memory of how he got there, he finds himself beginning a new journey with an unknown companion as they delve into the forest on a quest to explore its vast expanses, searching for clues to Adol’s identity along the way.
The PS Vita version adds optional front and rear touch-screen controls, more enemies on screen, and the most non-linear overworld in series history.
