Ys for PS4 and PS Vita is set to take place before Ys Seven. The game fills in the gap between Ys V: Lost Kefin, Kingdom of Sand and Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim. The game takes place in the Goethe Sea archipelago of South Gria. Characters from previous Ys games will also make on appearance. The new Ys title will depict an overall strong sense of the “sea” as a theme.
Toshihiro Kondo said the development staff are very motivated to the
game's development on the PS4. The new Ys game for PS4 and PS Vita is set to release sometime in 2015.
