Ys: Memories of Celceta is Falcom's re-imagining of Ys IV for the PlayStation Vita. The game was originally published in Japan on September 27, 2012 and XSEED will be bringing it to North America late 2013, while NIS America is handling the European release a few months later.
Two versions of Ys IV were released in 1993, Dawn of Ys for the PCE-CD and Mask of the Sun for the SNES, but neither of them were developed by Falcom themselves. Memories of Celceta will be Falcom's modern interpretation of the story outline they created for the previous two titles and will feature many of the new gameplay mechanics introduced Ys Seven.
Adol Christin has lost his memory after traveling through the forests of Celceta. Now Adol must travel back to the forest and begin his quest to recover his memories.
Karna is a tough cheerful girl from a village within the forests of Celceta who is well trained it hunting. She appears to have met Adol before he lost his memories and helps him on his adventure.
Duren is a strong man who is the kind of person that can not help but aid others when he sees them in trouble. Because of this he decides to help Adol on his quest to get his memories back.
