    This looks good. I remember playing this on my Master System all those years ago.
    Can't wait for an English release.

    Looks like they used assets from Ark of Napishtim (PSP/PS2)

    Ark of Naphistim is really Ys 6, and it was released for Windows in Japan some years ago. A little later Konami did a half-assed job at porting it to the PS2, and a really bad job in porting it to the PSP. The latest new Ys game by Falcom themselves was released a little over a year ago and is called Ys Origin and is also for Windows.

    Oh and yay for this release! Love Ys [​IMG]

    Ys COMPLETE (or Ys ETERNAL, pick one!) with changes:
    *A new dungeon (which changes how the events after the Shrine play out)
    *A new set of equipment that is weaker than the Silver Set, but stronger than Talwarl + Large Shield + Reflex
    - Defender (+32 STR)
    - Ruby Shield (+30 DEF)
    - Mithril Mail (+30 DEF)
    *Removal of Bestiary Potion (At least, it is not where it used to be, and I never found it in the game at all)
    *Addition of the Roda Tree Leaves (I never used them in the game either, so dunno if they were for anything)
    *New boss for the new dungeon, Petrorex
    *Normal Control or Touch Screen Control (Left Hand / Right Hand)
    Normal:
    D-Pad = Movement
    A/Y = Attack
    B (Hold) = Run
    X = Use Item
    R = Trigger Always Walk or Always Run
    Start = Menu
    Select = Options
    - Change Control Type
    - Return to Title

    Touch Screen:
    Stylus Controls Everything (run into monsters to attack, like the old days)
    D-Pad UP//X = Use Item (Left Handed uses X, Right Handed uses UP. Also, moving around in the Menu is Y for Left and A for Right if you are left handed, otherwise D-Pad Left and Right for Right Handed)
    Start = Menu
    Select = Options
    - Change Control Type
    - Return to Title

    Everything else is pretty much the same I suppose.
