Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Characters Detailed

One of the most legendary role-playing game series is set to make its return this year, as Ys VIII: Lacromosa of Dana releases for both PlayStation 4 and Vita. As its North American release of September 12 nears, publisher NIS America updated its official website with plenty of new details. The most exciting ones surround the game’s cast, which has now been fully detailed. Here’s how the site describes the game’s protagonist, Adol Christin: He left his homeland, a nameless village in the Europe region, when he was just 16 years old and dated to adventure in the Ancient Kingdom “Ys,” the Land of Mystery “Celceta,” and more. Although young, he is respected as an expert “adventurer.” He was traveling across the Gaete Sea as a passenger of the Lombardia when the ship was attacked by an unseen giant sea creature. He went missing along with the other passengers. Adol will be joined in his journey by Dana, a “magical blue-haired girl” that appears in his dreams. Other characters include Laxia, a warrior of noble descent, and Hummel, a rogue “transporter.” Rounding out the cast is a girl named Ricotta, who is a native resident of the Isle of Seiren.

Ys Origin Review – Dungeons, Demons, Ys Oh My! (PS4)

The Ys games have a rich history in action-JRPGs, starring the silent protagonist Adol Christin as he travels across various regions across the world, including Ys. Ys Origin has none of that. Instead, the origin story explains many of the mysteries of the Ys titles, such as the demon influx, how the Darm Tower came to be, as well as the history behind the twin goddesses, the Black Pearl, and the Six Priests. It’s meant to fill in any blanks for Ys fans who want to know more about the history of the people of Ys and round out Adol’s adventures in the first two Ys games. That said, however, like most origin stories, Ys Origin doesn’t bring a lot to the table in terms of a typical Ys game. It’s not nearly as lengthy as the other games, simply because there’s zero exploration to be had. The entire game takes place in the infamous Darm Tower, and thus, it’s a series of consecutive dungeon crawls with nothing in between them. There are no side quests, no time to explore, no real crafting system; there’s virtually nothing to distract you from the monotony of running through dungeon after dungeon. Each dungeon has variety to be sure, but the pattern is…

Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure Review — A Frighteningly Good Time

Sometimes wonderful things come in small packages. A great example of this is Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure. Launching as an eShop exclusive at a budget price point and without much fanfare, one could be forgiven for assuming the Nintendo 3DS port of Nihon Falcom’s 2004 PC title was just tepid shovelware. Yet to make such an assumption would be a terrible disservice to Gurumin, which unfolds to reveal a surprisingly compelling and charming game-play formula. Though it has appeared before on the PC and the PSP, Gurumin feels truly at home on a Nintendo platform, thanks in equal parts to its cartoony charms and the clear influence of some classic Nintendo IP on its game design. Our heroine is Parin, a spunky young red headed girl who is sent to stay with her grandfather while her excavator/adventurer parents travel the world in search of excitement. Parin will have no shortage of her own excitement though, and it becomes clear quite quickly as she is introduced to friendly monsters. She hasn’t time for many pleasantries with her no friends though, because their home, Monster Village, is in ruins following an assault from the nefarious Phantom Prince and his cohorts. Parin’s adventure is…
