Publisher Dotemu has announced that Nihon Falcom’s action RPG Ys Origin is “coming soon” to Nintendo Switch, bringing its “combo-focused, arcade-paced combat, platforming, and challenging puzzles” with it. Though over 13 years old, the game first saw release in North America in 2012 for PC, later coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and even Xbox One. Now, the game comes to Switch with both a standard and collector physical edition from Limited Run Games.
Preorders for the Limited Run Ys Origin physical editions will begin tomorrow at noon ET. The standard edition gets you the game and the box as per usual. The collector edition includes a poster, physical soundtrack, art book, and collector’s box.
Ys Origin fans in North America can choose between standard and collector editions by @LimitedRunGames which include:
– A beautiful Ys Origin poster
– A physical copy of the official OST
– A unique collector's box

Dotemu shares what to expect from the game’s story:
Ys Origin joins aspiring knight Yunica Tovah and mage Hugo Fact, two fighters desperately searching for the Goddesses that have abandoned them. Together the duo must best the demonic forces lurking within an enormous tower before the beasts reach humanity’s sanctuary in the clouds. With tons of powerful loot to earn, distinct scenarios and playstyles between each character as well as secrets to unveil, Ys Origin is a deep, compelling RPG experience.
This isn’t the only Nihon Falcom Ys action on Switch lately. During New Game+ Expo, NIS America revealed that Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is heading west on Nintendo Switch and other platforms in 2021.
