After announcing the PC release for Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim, XSEED Games has announced that the game will be coming to PC a bit earlier than most of you were expecting --- this month, to be exact.

Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim, which was only released prior in North America on the PS2 and Sony PSP, delivers a storyline rich with memorable characters and themes on top of engaging hack-and-slash action RPG gameplay that would go on to influence later Ys titles, setting the foundation that series favorites Ys: The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin were later built upon. Complete with the original high-resolution graphics and full USB controller support, the PC version of Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim introduces brand-new features exclusive to this PC version that aim to create a modernized gameplay experience more in line with later Ys entries. Among these features are full widescreen support, the ability to warp among checkpoints, and an optional "Catastrophe Mode" in which healing items can't be purchased or stored and are instead used automatically on pickup.

Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim will be released worldwide on April 28 through Steam, Humble Bundle's Humble Store and GOG.com for $19.99, €17.99, and £13.99. As a celebration of the game's release, the price will be slashed by 15% for the first week of the game's release on each storefront.
