Remastered Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana arriving in 2025

While we wait for a release date for Ys X: Nordics (allegedly it’s getting worldwide release this fall), today at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles we got news from XSEED that at least one other Ys game is on the horizon: Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana will be arriving on PS4/5 and Nintendo Switch in early 2025.

It’ll be a 20th anniversary release, since Ys Memoire was first released in Japan in 2005. For Western audiences, though, it’ll be more like a 15th anniversary, since the game only arrived in the West on PSP in 2010.

Regardless of how you look at it, the trailer below shows that the game is going to look and sound a lot better now than it did when it first came out a few decades ago. Not only that, this remastered version will also feature something that no other Ys game can claim: Adol will speak, with this new version featuring voice acting for the famously mute protagonist.

Anime Expo attendees will get the first hands-on with the new game, but we’ll surely get more details as we get closer to a release date. For now, here are screenshots and the trailer!

Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana - Announcement Trailer

XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that acclaimed RPG developer Nihon Falcom’s remastered classic, Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana, will be released in North America for the Nintendo Switch™ system, PlayStation®5, and PlayStation®4 in early 2025. Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana brings the RPG classic, originally released under the title Ys III: Wanderers From Ys, then later re-released as Ys: The Oath in Felghana, to modern platforms with improved visuals while retaining the action RPG’s core gameplay and charm. The title joins the lineup of playable games at the Marvelous USA and XSEED Games booth, Entertainment Hall – 110, at Anime Expo taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 4-7.

Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana follows thrill-seeking protagonist Adol and his blue-haired companion Dogi as they return to Dogi’s homeland of Felghana. The eight years they’ve been away have not been kind to the lands which are now filled with roaming monsters, a newly active volcano, and a greedy new overlord extorting the suffering residents. While Dogi seeks help from his former master, Adol remains to help the locals, only to find himself embroiled in a world of conspiracies and ancient legacies.

With remastered high-definition visuals and music, the epic adventure has never looked or sounded better. Additional features include multiple versions of the sweeping soundtrack, accessibility options, and brand-new character illustrations, making Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana the definitive edition of the acclaimed masterpiece.
