Imagine my shock and surprise at finding a copy of Ys VI - Ark of Naphtism(sp?) hidden away in my own store last night. Naturally, I bought it right up and then spent most of the night playing it. Then I decided, what the heck, I know we've got some Ys fans here. Let's talk about it.

I'm not gonna go much into the story of AoN, since I dislike spoilers and honestly have no idea which Ys IV this one's a sequel to, so I'll just say a few things I've noticed about Adol over the series.

One, for someone who's not actually from a heroic bloodline or some such other legendary prophetic nonsense, Adol just can't seem to even walk down the street without a grand adventure flying out and hitting him in the face. And with the way that people pick him out of a crowd just by looking for red hair, you'd think he'd have started wearing a damn hat by now.

Two, the man's a pimp. I will accept no arguments on this whatsoever. Almost every Ys gave I've ever played has had at least one damsel at some point falling head over heels for him after he saves her life from the forces of darkness. In AoN here, we've got at least two right off the top, if you don't count recurring characters. I guess chicks dig red haired heroes, or something.

Finally, just a minor thing I wanted to note. I never want to get on the same boat with Adol. Like, ever.

EVER.

The rest of the party, in typical Slayers fashion, gives a reaction to the effect of "Sounds reasonable."

It's a sequel to the SNES Ys 4.
The PCE Ys 4 is non-canon.

Mask of the Sun? Our Ys 4?

Mask of the Sun, the one AGTP translated, is canon.

I feel at a slight loss. I've never heard of this game.

Do you put in the code to change the voices to japanese or do you play it as it is?

As is. I wasn't even aware there's a J-voice code.

And hey, you're alive.

Ys VI is one of the few games where I don't feel like impalin' myself/someone else in the head over the voice-work.

Yeah, if you put it in it changes the english to japanese and the FMV to anime. Only slight downside is that you don't get the extra ending on nightmare since it's considered a cheat, if that matters at all.
