Ys Chronicles II hits Android, Chronicles I goes on sale
Ys Chronicles is a action-adventure JRPG that has a long and storied past. It first hit American shores all the way back in 1990, and was remade a decade later for release on the PC. The two-part series was fairly popular among a niche demographic, but it finally hit its stride when it arrived on mobile devices. The PSP was the first handheld gaming platform to receive the glory of Ys Chronicles, and its popularity exploded.
The first game has been available on Android for a while, but developer DotEmu has been insisting all that time that Ys Chronicles II was on its way. Today the epic journey finally arrived, and in celebration, DotEmu is knocking 50% off the purchase price of the first game. That means there’s never been a better time to see what all the fuss is about.
The Android version of the RPG comes with every bit of the content that first wooed audiences on PC and PSP. It also brings a few extra bits and enhancements to the table, including different play modes (Andventure and Time Attack). You can also choose whether to play with the updated, HD graphics, or rock it old school with the traditional sprites. Same goes with the audio: updated soundtrack or classic. There are even a few new artifacts, weapons, and armor sprinkled in there as a perk for mobile players.
The game is available for a single purchase of $4.99. It’s a complete game with no in-app purchases. If you really want to start at the beginning, be sure to take advantage of the sale going on for the first one by clicking the buttons below.
