The RPG remakes continue! From 1up: Interchannel-Holon plans to release a remake version of Ys I and Ys II for the Nintendo DS, according to Famitsu magazine. Ys I was originally released on the PC in 1987, followed by Ys II in 1988. The series has become a popular RPG title which spawned several more sequels and ports were also released on game consoles over the years. The latest will be remade from the ground up as players will now see new character animations such as Adol swinging a sword (as opposed the original game where it only showed him bumping into enemies), and you will also encounter original enemies and maps in the DS version. The top screen will display the game field while the bottom screen will sport the player stats. Other DS features include a boss fight mode and a multiplayer mode. Up to four players can compete over wireless, defeating as many enemies as possible and gathering the orbs they leave behind. Extras such as jukebox allows players to listen to their favorite tunes as well. Unfortunately, Ys I and Ys II will not be bundled together but sold as two separate games (and each costs a whopping 5040yen, which is about $44!). Both are expected for a spring 2008 release in Japan.
