It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years since Ys Seven found its way west on the PSP back in 2010. Now publisher XSEED Games has announced that Nihon Falcom’s beloved role-playing game will be making its way to Windows PC via Steam, GOG, and The Humble Store by Humble Bundle later this summer.
The PC port of Ys Seven is more than just a mere transplant of the handheld version. XSEED promises this will be a polished port that features “all the features of a modern PC release.” These modern amenities include full HD support, 60fps framerate, and plug-and-play controller compatibility, as well as achievements on applicable platforms such as Steamworks and GOG Galaxy.

Ys Seven is massive. The title features over 30 hours of adventure as players must bring together five tribes that serve and protect the Five Great Dragons – godly beings that serve as the world’s last hope. It’s also the first “modern” entry in Nihon Falcom’s long-running RPG series, which made its debut on Japanese computers and later became immensely popular on NEC’s PC Engine in Japan. The game introduces the ability to swap between three party members with the press of a button – a feature found in the upcoming Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA (check out our Ys VIII interview with Nihon Falcom’s president Toshihiro Kondo here).
