|This is a remake of the second game in the long-running Ys action RPG series.
A bright light shot up from Dahm Tower in the end of the first game, and our hero Adol
Christian is awakened by a young girl who finds him lying on the ground. She
introduces herself as Lilia and tells Adol he is in the land of Ys. Finally he was
able to establish a connection between his world and this mysterious land! But
finding the gateway to Ys is not enough: Adol must stop the evil entity that his
archenemy Dark Fact served. And his foes already know where he is. This game is a
direct sequel to what PC players know as Ancient Land of Ys. The gameplay utilizes
an unusual action RPG combat style, where you don't press any attack button, but
run into your enemies in order to cause damage. You should choose the angles and
the measure of contact with the enemy carefully, otherwise you'll be dead. You can
(and should) level up, perform quests for village people, gather money, and upgrade
your weapons and inventory, like in any other RPG. See further explanation under Ys 1 Complete. In 2009, Ys I & II Chronicles was a Japanese PC port of a PSP version based on Ys I & II Complete. When starting a new game, the player can choose between two different game modes, which will display character portraits from the 2001 Windows release, or entirely new portraits created for this release. The soundtrack can be changed at any time during the game, between that of the PC88 release, the 2001 Windows release, or an entirely re-orchestrated soundtrack. In 2013, an English Steam release called Ys I & II Chronicles+ with adjustable high-resolution PC graphics with a smooth, consistent framerate, a greater viewing area, Steam achievements, and combat receives a full analog-enabled upgrade for gamepad users among other improvements.
