If you're thinking of picking up Ys Origin on Nintendo Switch, you'll be interested to know that it's now available to pre-purchase from the Switch eShop. The best news? It's currently 20% off.
The discount is available across Europe and North America, and is valid right up until the game's release date of 1st October. You can order it now for £14.39 / $15.99; it'll rise back up to £17.99 / $19.99 on launch day.
That's not all, though, as a new trailer for the game has also been released (see above). It introduces us to Ys Origin’s duo of playable warriors – the axe-wielding holy knight Yunica Tovah and the powerful sorcerer Hugo Fact – as well as each fighter’s unique strengths and some of the intense battles that await in-game.
We'll make sure to have a review of this one for you around the time of release. Until then, we'll leave you with this official description:
A retro cult classic modernized with polish, refined visuals, and additional content including a speedrun mode, Ys Origin challenges players to leave their sanctuary among the clouds to brave a vital search for the world’s Goddesses. Warriors will master accessible arcade-paced combat against incredibly powerful hordes and in spectacular boss battles as their journey winds through a towering pillar brimming with demonic forces.
Ys Origin blends light platforming elements and satisfying puzzles, keeping its exciting moment to moment gameplay varied as players discover hidden loot and unravel the mystery surrounding the Goddesses’ disappearance. With multiple endings, distinct fighting styles between its playable characters and secrets to discover, Ys Origin’s compelling story spans a huge and satisfying quest.
No switch tax AND a discount?
Already bought from LRG but I don't know if I can wait for it to to be sent out. Might have to double-dip and get it digital too.
£12 on russian store.
I loved this on PS4, I think I’ll have to pick it up again I never played through Yunica’s story, so this’ll be interesting.
On the eshop it is still listed at $19.99 though- maybe it’s a glitch? :/
Dang...they really want me to buy this...and it looks like I shall. ;3
Does anybody know if there will be a physical version? If not, might as well get the discount now..
I actually fired up Ys VIII last night. First time playing this series so ill keep an eye on this one.
@NintendoByNature Ys VIII is fantastic. It was my first game, too, and it made me into a fan.
@Bobb There was a limited run physical release online for about a month, but that's gone now, so your best bet at this point is to go digital and snag a discount.
@Ralizah its been fun with the 45 min I played last night. Reminds me combat wise, of the trials of mana remake. But that's a good thing to me. I know you weren't high on the remake, but they feel similar.
I left off in a cave off the beach and just got another sword, and looking for someone creeping around. Ill play a little more on lunch since I have to wait on 3d Allstars to arrive.
Sidetracked lol: this game looks like a zelda-esque iso dungeon crawler based on the trailer. With that said, im interested.
@NintendoByNature @Ralizah It is being given a standard physical release in Europe. Currently available to pre-order for £23.99 from 365Games in the UK.
Ys IX is also up for pre-order physically in the UK. The Game Collection have that for £39.95.
Edit: Oops, it was @Bobb I meant to tag here, not NintendoByNature.
Am I the only one who doesn't see the 20% discount?
Nope. I see no discount on the US eshop.
Not seeing it either.
Looking forward to the game.
I'm a fan of three first three games, but not the more modern ones, so this is looking right up my alley.
@BionicDodo its no problem 😉
I might pick this one up eventually; it's bound to go on sale sometime after release like Ys VIII. I still need to play that one to see if this series is for me.
I thought this game was new...but also familiar. Turns out I played this years ago on PC, bit worried that I don't remember it in the slightest.
Maybe it's better on Switch? Might jump back into it
I pre-ordered my copy from LRG but this discount is nice!
That's a nice discount. Tempting...
That’s one hell of a discount before the game has even launched.
I'm totally sold on Ys IX because I love Ys VIII, but I'm not so sure about this one yet... It doesn't really look like a RPG, it's seems more an action/dungeon crawler game to me.
Maybe I'm wrong, but it's what I feel from the trailers.
Doesnt look like its for me. VIII looks more up my street
