For almost 20 years, the Ys series has been one of the most beloved RPG franchises in Japan. Although its name may be unfamiliar to the west, its sumptuous worlds and complex characters are legendary in the east. Ys IV - The Ark of Napishtim is the first in the series to be adapted for PlayStation 2, and Konami proudly brings it to Europe.
Ys tracks the adventures of hero, Adol Christian, whose three magical swords grant him special abilities, attacks and magic spells. Ys: The Ark of Napishtim originally launched for PC in Japan but has undergone numerous enhancements to make the PS2 version even more enthralling. Its fantastical tale is an incredible journey through beautiful environments, both at sea and on land, as Adol explores the mysterious ?Vortex of Canaan?.
Adol?s three magical swords are imbued with elemental powers, used to uncover secrets that lie within mysterious whirlpools surrounding a tropical island. The game?s grand-view of the world, distinct storytelling, exciting plot twists and unique characters set it apart from other action RPGs.
As you advance through the game you?ll unlock incredible hidden artwork and computer-generated movies that showcase the legacy of the Ys series. A moving musical score has also been specially composed to suit the majestic nature of the game.
