Falcom’s new Ys game for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita is currently 30 percent complete, this week’s Dengeki PlayStation reveals.
The game’s story is expected to take place just before Ys Seven, at some point between Ys V: Lost Kefin, Kingdom of Sand and Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim.
The setting is the “Goethe Sea,” an archipelago of South Gria. As such, there is a strong sense of the sea in the game’s overall image.
New elements and systems will also be added. And characters from previous Ys games will appear, as well.
Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo describes PlayStation 4 development as trial-and-error, but adds that the staff is very highly motivated. The team hopes to implement PlayStation 4 Share functions and such.
The next Ys is due out in Japan next year.
Famitsu this week unveils PoPoLoCrois Harvest Moon for 3DS. Or rather, PoPoLoCrois Bokujou Monogatari (Farm Story), considering it won’t be localized under the Harvest Moon title.
The game is an RPG fusion of PoPoLoCrois and Harvest Moon featuring a command-based battle system.
The main character is a young prince named Pietro. A number of familiar characters from the PoPoLoCrois series will also appear. And as expected from a Harvest Moon title, players will be able to take care of animals and grow crops on their ranch.
Here is the current list of characters:
- Prince Pietro (voiced by Ai Orikasa)
- Narushia (voiced by Yuri Shiratori)
- Gilda (voiced by Masako Nozawa)
- White Knight (voiced by Masashi Ebara)
- Gamigami Devil (voiced by Akio Otsuka)
A release date was not announced.
In related news, Marvelous producer Yoshifumi Hashimoto mentioned that while they can’t announce it yet, “an unexpected project” is in the planning, and that a number of surprises such as PoPoLoCrois Farm Story are in the works.

Disgaea 5, announced for PlayStation 4 at this week’s SCEJA Press Conference, will have the greatest volume in the series yet, this week’s Dengeki PlayStation reveals.
The amount of characters that can be displayed on-screen has seen a significant increase thanks to PlayStation 4, jumping from 10 on PS3 to 100 on PlayStation 4. There will be new systems, too.
According to Nippon Ichi Software president Sohei Niikawa, they thought about making the game multi-platform with PlayStation 3, but wanted to make something that can only be done on PlayStation 4.
The game’s story is themed around the concept of “revenge.” Dengeki PlayStation introduces the first three characters this week:
- Kiria (voiced by Mamoru Miyano) – The protagonist. A young demon boy who swears revenge on the “Demon Emperor Void Dark.”
- Seraphine (voiced by Sarah Emi Bridcutt) – The heroine. The sheltered princess and daughter of “Gorgeous Underworld”‘s demon king.
- Usaria (voiced by Satomi Akesaka) – The demon king of “Rabbit Rabbit World,” cursed to go berserk if she does not eat curry.
But perhaps the biggest news, the next issue of Dengeki PlayStation will include a product code to download a trial version of Disgaea 5.
Disgaea 5 is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan in spring 2015 for 7,200 yen.
