The sixth installment in Nihon Falcom's Ys series is finally on its way and should meet its Japanese release in a mere two months, on September 27th. Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim can be run with 800mHz Pentium III or equivalent processor, with 1G of HD space and 128MB of Ram for Win98/Me users or 256 for XP/2000. As always with Japanese PC releases, the game is set to run on a Japanese language OS and is not guaranteed to work under other languages.
More precise specs requirements can be found on Falcom's website.
Whether you're importing or not, you can take a look at the first 12 high-res screen shots while waiting.
A US release is most definitely NOT coming.
