Originally released in Japan in 2006, Ys Origin finally debuts in English with true widescreen support and Steamworks integration including Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, and leaderboards.

Three unique storylines and gameplay styles

Play as one of three different characters, each with their own unique story to tell and completely different style of gameplay. Choose from classic platforming action, shoot-em-up/run-and-gun or berserker-style melee combat.

Multiple modes of play add endless replay value

Time Attack, Boss Rush, and Arena Mode keep the action going long after the initial Story Mode has been cleared, unlocking special items and perhaps even a certain red-headed hero…

Rockin' Soundtrack from Falcom's Legendary Sound Team JDK

Falcom once again provides hard rock riffs and classic Ys arrangements to keep the blood pumping as players battle through intense old-school platforming, puzzles and bosses.
