Good news, RPG fans. Publisher XSEED Games has announced that the PlayStation 4 is getting a remaster of Nihon Falcom’s beloved adventure Ys: Memories of Celceta next Spring.
Originally released on the PlayStation Vita and later on Steam, Ys: Memories of Celceta is the 4th canonical game in the long-running JRPG series.
