An Interconnected World Full of Secrets
- Icy peaks connect with fiery caverns, old waterways, mystical forests, and magical ruins, creating one single giant map to explore with countless secret passageways, alternate routes, shortcuts, hidden items, deadly bosses and new techniques to uncover.
Real-Time Combat with Dozens of Unique Abilities
- Fight ruthless enemies in real time, using a wide variety of skills to aid you. As in Ys Seven, skills are attached to weapons and can be learned through repeated use of those weapons, adding an element of excitement and promise to every new armament found.
Exploration Rewarded with Rich Backstory
- Stone tablets and old letters are scattered throughout the ruins on Harlech Island, each written in an ancient tongue. Fortunately, your companion is an accomplished scholar who can translate them for you in real time, providing valuable insight into important events and mythologies from the age of Xanadu.
Unique Gameplay Systems to Keep the Experience Fresh
- Players can choose to level-down in order to tweak their stats, fuse themselves with "Guardians" to gain new passive abilities, learn spells, and even carve keys from monster bones to lessen demand for pre-made keys and keep their prices low.
