XSEED Commemorates Ys Silver Anniversary with Memories of Celceta Premium Edition


Ys: Memories of Celceta, a modern reimagining of Ys IV, is coming to North America this holiday season, exclusively on PlayStation Vita. In addition to being the first version of Ys IV to be released in the West, Memories of Celceta‘s launch will celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary with a Silver Anniversary limited edition box set.

The Silver Anniversary Edition will retail for $59.99–up from the standard edition’s price of $39.99–and contain a 3-disc soundtrack collection spanning the entire Ys history, a functional compass with the game’s logo on the lid, a cloth map of Celceta, and an art and strategy book called ‘Adol’s Travel Journal’.

The packaging isn’t 100% final, but the image up top is an early preview of the premium edition class you can expect from the Ys: Memories of Celceta Silver Anniversary Edition. Look down below for some new screenshots from the game itself, which will feature that classic, fast-paced Ys action-RPG gameplay fans know and love, optional touchscreen and rear touch pad mechanics for issuing squad orders and zooming the camera, more enemies on screen at once than previously possible, and, most impressively, “the largest, most non-linear overworld in Ys history.”

By golly, I think Nihon Falcom is on to something here!
