Experience Ys Origin and Windjammers like never before
French Publisher DotEmu has unveiled remakes of two classic games during this year’s PlayStation Experience.
A remake of the RPG classic Ys Origin is scheduled for release on February 21, 2017, on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Originally released back in 2006 on PC, Ys Origin served as a prequel to the Ys series. The events of Ys Origin took place 700 years before the Ys I: Ancient Ys Vanished, the first title in the Ys series.
The remake of Ys Origin promises to include several bonus features while still aiming to stay true to the original version of the game. Language support for Japanese, English, and, for the first time ever, French, Italian, German, and Spanish have been confirmed as well.
DotEmu has also confirmed the upcoming remake of Windjammers. Originally released in the arcade and on Neo Geo, Windjammers is a fast-paced arcade game that will have players facing off against one another on the court as they throw discs at their opponent’s goal zone in order to score the most points and claim victory.
The Windjammers remake will include five different game modes, an all-new online versus mode, and trophies and player leaderboards. Players will also be able to choose from one of several characters, each boasting their own unique stats. Windjammers is set to release sometime in Q1 of 2017 on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. No official release date has been confirmed.
