Ys Origin headed to Steam at the end of May

Ys Origin, the seventh game in the Ys series, is set for a May 31 release on Steam.

Ys Origin is a prequel, and is thus the first Ys game in chronological terms. Set 700 years before Ys I & II, Ys Origin explores the back story of Ys through three playable characters (each with their own story) who might sound a tad familiar to fans with a good memory of the original titles.

Originally released in 2006 for Windows, Ys Origin will finally be released outside of Japan thanks to publisher XSEED Games and their localization efforts. The Steam version boasts widescreen and enhanced game pad support, online leaderboards, and additional game modes (available upon completion).

Ys Origin will set you (and me!) back $US19.99/€15.99/£12.99.
