Ys The Art Book

Finally got my hands on the art book of Ys which got released just recently. I thought I missed my chance getting this book last week because it’s out of stock everywhere online. But luckily, CDJapan had it restocked.

YsArtBook01

In order to celebrate Ys 25th Anniversary, Falcom came up with this art book. Note that this post is going to be very images heavy.

YsArtBook02

The book which is 280 pages thick, includes all kinds of artworks from the following Ys games:
– Ys: Celceta no Jukai
– Ys vs. Sora no Kiseki: Alternative Saga
– Ys SEVEN
– Ys I&II Chronicles
– Ys Origin
– Ys Felghana no Chikai
– Ys VI: Napishtim no Hako
– Ys I&II ~Complete~
– Ys II Eternal
– Ys Eternal
– Ys V: Ushinawareta Sunano Miyako Kefin
– Wanderers from Ys (Ys III)
– Ys II
– Ys

The titles are based on the Japanese version of the games, starting from the latest release.

Already beaten Celceta no Jukai on PSVita but it’s good to know XSeed is bringing it over on Q3 2013.

A crossover fighting game released on PSP using Ys SEVEN engine.

I like to mention that I didn’t took any photos of dungeon or town scenery arts in this book because there’s too many stuffs.

Ys Origin

Ys Origin is the only game where Adol Christin isn’t the main character. I’m sure most people should know by now.

Hoping Falcom will remake Ys V in the future since it’s the only game left without a remake.

Last segment of the art book are artworks used for the Ys Calender.
All of them are very nice.

Elena with Chester’s Excalibur artwork is always a plus.

Do grab this art book of Ys if you have the chance, it’s really worth every penny. I’m sure this post didn’t do enough justice for the book as it has much more contents to offer.
