Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo confirmed plans to release two more “refine” games alongside the recently revealed Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana. Kondo revealed his plans in the 2022 year-end issue of Famitsu, which releases on December 22.
According to Kondo, three Nintendo Switch games will launch in fiscal year ending on September 30, 2023. These new Falcom games include Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana and the next mainline title in the Ys series, Ys X: Nordics. The two new “refine” games described by Kondo will likely come to Nintendo Switch as well.
Famitsu’s interview with Kondo also reveals that Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana runs at 60 FPS on Nintendo Switch. Currently, Falcom is working to replace old textures with high resolution versions. Additionally, the Nintendo Switch game features balance adjustments (Thanks, Gematsu).
Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana launches in spring 2023 for Nintendo Switch in Japan. Ys X: Nordics is slated for a 2023 release in Japan for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam. Fans can expect even more releases from Falcom in 2023, however.
NIS America will release The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure on March 14, 2023 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam. Lastly, The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie launches July 7, 2023 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam.
