43w ago - XSeed Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz announced today that Ys: Memories of Celceta is out today for PS Vita.

So while your in-laws all dream of sugarplums and dandelions, you'll be off exploring the Great Forest and saving the world from evil yet again.

The latest installment in Nihon Falcom's 25 year-old RPG franchise, Ys: Memories of Celceta, is a complete reimagining of the series' legendary fourth installment. To make a long story short(ish), Ys IV is a game that's been published in Japan three times previously - and all were completely different games that were developed independently by different companies.
