Falcom's Ys Origin is a Japanese action rpg that was originally released on Steam and now it is finally getting a release on both the Vita and PS4 as downloadable title from the PSN store.
Played through the perspective of the three protagonists that offer unique stories, the game is set 700 years prior to the events of the first Ys game. It provides a backstory for Ys, Darm Tower, the Black Pearl, the twin goddesses, and the six priests. So the game serves not only as a great starting point for newcomers to the series but offers fans a great deal of depth adding more to the lore of the long running series.
