Action RPG Ys SEVEN for PSP Arrives in Europe Today

XSEED Games, an independent-minded publisher, has announced today the arrival of Ys SEVEN, the first title in the legendary Ys series of Action RPG games to be created exclusively for the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system.

Beginning today, the English translation of Ys SEVEN is available for purchase as a digital download in Europe from the PlayStation Store.

Developed by one of Japan’s most highly regarded and longest running development studios, Nihon Falcom, Ys SEVEN marks the first installment in the popular and long-running Ys series that XSEED will publish under a multi-title agreement with the prominent Japanese studio.

Eagerly awaited by fans and awarded the prestigious Gold rating from Famitsu magazine in Japan, Ys SEVEN has garnered a number of other accolades following its recent North American release, including:

  • “Best PSPTM Game of E3 Nominee” – 1UP.com
  • “Best Overall RPG of E3” – RPGFan
  • “A very fast-paced, well-balanced, and simply fun title.” – RPGamer

Ys SEVEN marks the first new Ys game to be released in North America and now Europe in over four years, and is designed to take full advantage of the PSPTM hardware. Ys SEVEN features an action-based real-time battle system where players can swap between any of the three-member battle party on the fly and engage enemies in a richly detailed 3D environment with virtually no load times.

Ys SEVEN includes nine playable characters, each with their own fighting style, special abilities, and variety of unique weapons. Four difficulty levels allow players of all backgrounds to experience the exciting action in beautifully rendered widescreen 3D environments. The game’s more than 30 hours of addictive gameplay span the tale of “Five Great Dragons” who must be awakened by two wandering adventurers, Adol and Dogi, and their newfound allies in order to save a war-torn kingdom from destruction by long-forgotten ancient forces.

Ys SEVEN has a suggested retail price of £21.00/€24.99 as a digital download from the PlayStation®Store.
