Here’s XSEED’s description for Ys: Memories of Celceta:
An extensive reimagining of Ys IV, one of the few titles in the acclaimed series’ 25-year history never to have made its way to the West, Ys: Memories of Celceta revolves around beloved series hero, Adol Christin, who awakens on the outskirts of the Great Forest of Celceta with no memory of how he got there. Soon, Adol finds himself beginning a new journey with an unknown companion as they delve into the forest on a quest to explore its vast expanses, searching for clues to his identity along the way.
A cleverly familiar yet all-original story awaits North American adventurers in Ys: Memories of Celceta, with plenty to offer franchise newcomers and veterans alike. Combined with the largest overworld map in series history, players will undertake a majestic venture filled with new experiences, challenges and foes. The party battle system from Ys Seven makes its triumphant return, with a host of upgrades such as enhanced flash-guarding, adjustable party AI and unique abilities to help streamline encounters for fast and furious combat. Boss Rush mode makes a comeback too, pitting Adol and his companions against implacable foes to keep the challenge going well after the main story has been completed.
