Ys X Will Feature a Younger Adol, Focus on One-Versus-One Combat and More


Ys X, the next entry in the long-running action role-playing game series by Falcom, will feature a younger Adol and it will focus on one-versus-one combat

The latest issue of Japanese magazine Famitsu, as reported by ryokutya2089 and translated by @Hansuke21, includes concept art for the game featuring a younger Adol, which suggests that it will be set in the past, and a woman, possibly the heroine, wielding a one-handed axe. Both Adol's and the woman's arms are connected by a string.

The Japanese magazine also provided the first Ys X gameplay details. Apparently, the game will not feature the party system seen from YS Seven onwards, focusing instead on one-versus-one combat. While it won't be majorly influenced by the Souls series, the new combat system will have some elements inspired by the From Software franchise, such as movement and positioning.

The new issue of Famitsu also includes an interview with Falcom's president Toshihiro Kondo, who stated that Ys X is in the works for multiple platforms. Which ones he did not say, but it is safe to assume, judging from the most recent entries in the series, that the game will launch on PC, PlayStation consoles, and Nintendo Switch.

Ys X is currently in development for yet-to-be-announced platforms, and a release window has yet to be revealed. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
