Nippon Ichi has announced Ys X: Nordics. That’s nice!

More Adol for the soul.

It’s always a good day when NISA drops a new game announcement, and this is a big one: The publisher is bringing Yx X: Nordics to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and 5 and PC in Autumn (or Spring for us Aussies) 2024.

There’s a neat trailer to go with this also-neat description of what to expect. Surprise! Adol’s back!

This milestone entry offers exhilarating, fast-paced combat, a moving story of unexpected bonds, and naval exploration across the vibrant Obelia Gulf.

Adol Christin and his unlikely ally, the pirate Karja Balta, must learn to work together to save the people of the gulf from the mysterious immortal monsters known as the Griegr.

The only downside is that the press release only announces a Japanese voice track for the PC version, implying that we’ll be forced to listen to the English dub if we play it on console. I do hope that’s just some poor wording on NISA’s part and Japanese will be available on all platforms.
