If you enjoyed Ys VIII or any of the games from the Ys series, you'll be happy to know the next entry in the series is currently in development. French gaming website ActuGaming recently got an interview with Nihon Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo, in which they talk about the latest entry in the series. At the end, they ask one more question about the future of the series and got an awesome answer.
One last question, do you have something to say to our readers? Maybe a crunchy info on the next adventures of Adol for example or another game?
TK: Regarding the Ys series, we are working on a new game. It will not be a remake but a brand new title. It will be about Adol and it will be right after the events of Ys VIII. I hope you will look forward to it.
That's really awesome news as the speculation online is that the next title in the series would probably be a remake. So to know that a game like Ys: IX is probably in the works as we speak is pretty awesome. But we're probably a couple years away from seeing the game come to life.
