Ys: The Oath in Felghana arrives on PSP in the US

Long-running Japanese RPG series, Ys is back once more, this time on PSP and PSN with the catchily-titled, Ys: The Oath in Felghana.

First appearing way back in 1987 on the Japanese-only NEC PC-8801 (no, me neither), The Oath in Felghana is a remake of the third game in the series, Wanderers of Ys, which made waves at the time by introducing a side-scrolling view to the then-traditionally top-down game.

Levelled up

Adapted for the PSP controls and packing updated graphics that take the view back up above the action (and a little bit to the side), Oath features a completely overhauled inventory and magic system, five difficulty levels, and fully-voiced dialogue across the 10-hour adventure.

There’s a number of unlockable modes like Boss Rush and Time Attack to unlock upon completion, along with a sixth difficulty level if you’re feeling particularly masochistic.

Ys: The Oath in Felghana is out now in North America, digitally on the PlayStation Store and in traditional bricks and mortar locations.
