Well, fans don’t have to wait longer, as developer Nihon Falcom and publisher NIS America have finally locked in October 25th as the western release date for Ys X: Nordics. The tenth entry in the series will launch for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store.

Here’s the announcement trailer featuring the English voices of our dual protagonists, Adol and Karja:

Ys X: Nordics Overview

Following their tenuous encounter at sea, the young red-haired adventurer Adol Christin and the proud pirate Karja Balta find themselves bound by fate – and the mysterious power of Mana! As they search for a way to undo the mystical ties that bind them, they soon find themselves caught up in a conflict between two factions: the seafaring warriors known as the Normans and the enigmatic and seemingly immortal Griegr. In order to save the people of Obelia Gulf, Adol and Karja must navigate the depths of their unexpected bond and the power that it grants them.

Key Details

Two Heroes, One Story: Bound by unexpected circumstances, the young adventurer Adol and the Norman pirate Karja must work together to determine the fate of Obelia Gulf and its people.

Cross Action System: Swap between controlling Adol and Karja independently or together. Combine their unique strengths to overcome enemies, and build up the Revenge Gauge to unleash devastating attacks.

The Power of Mana: Harness the unique abilities of Mana to overcome challenges. Grapple and slide through dungeons, demolish obstacles, create new platforms, and uncover hidden treasures and critical points.
