Dive into a Fantasy JRPG Saga

The Far West is where the sea meets its end.
Many say it is the location of nature's wrath, "The Great Vortex of Canaan," which engulfs all ships that dare to attempt a traverse.
Why does it exist?
What kind of world is on the other side?
If you hold a soul of adventure, you will be drawn toward this unknown!

Game Summary
"Ys Online: The Ark of Napishtim" is licensed and adapted from the sixth generation of the legendary Japanese franchise, the Ys series. The game, supervised by Falcom, inherits the soul of popular JRPG adventures. While revitalizing the original plot, a premier VA lineup was added to dub the entire story, crafting a richer and more refined experience. In the game, adventurers will accompany Adol to the "Great Vortex of Canaan" to meet the mysterious Rehdan Sisters and together explore the "Ruins of the Winged One Civilization." A heartwarming story and fantastic adventure are about to commence.


[The Classic Ys VI Story Is Back with a Magnificent Adventure]
The red-haired adventurer Adol, the mysterious Rehdan priestesses Olha & Isha, the commander with a dire mission Ernst, and the powerful Geis... All the fan-favorite characters have returned with new character-exclusive side stories! Classic maps such as Limewater Cave, Zemeth Island, and the Grana-Vallis Mountain have been revamped, enriching the emotional experience signature of Ys!

[Explore the Ancient Forest Ruins and Challenge the Mighty BOSS]
Meet the Rehdan Sisters and defeat the Demi-Galba to save their tribe! The labyrinth in the ruins of the Canaan Islands is waiting for bold adventurers. There are many treasures and mighty bosses hidden in their depths. Come and take on the challenges with Adol!

[Experience a Japanese Fantasy Adventure and Try the Different Game Modes]
While preserving the retro style of the Ys series, the game adds many new game varieties, such as dungeons, puzzle-solving, competitions, and the role progression mode. Adventurers can now choose to auto-experience gameplay or take full control of the exciting action with game modes, making the game more directable and enriching this high-fantasy adventure RPG!

[Choose One of the Four Main Classes to Create Brand-New Heroes for Canaan]
There are four classic classes ready for you: A close-combat warrior with high defense, a mage who can attack crowds from a distance, a ranger who heals multiple allies at once, and an assassin who is ready to strike up close, with various class transformations for you to determine. The Goddess Alma will guide your way to the most suitable choice!

[Switch between Combat and Leisure to Share a Relaxing Time with Friends]
In the world of Ys, intense battles are not the only thing to do. You will be able to participate in casual farming, cooking, home furnishing, pet breeding, and fashionable dress-up. Take a breath from the exhilarating adventure and enjoy a relaxing time with friends!

[The All-Star VA Cast and Amazing Soundtrack Experience]
The game includes all of the original signature music of Ys VI, with Kaji Yuki, Ishikawa Yui, Kawasumi Ayako, Koshimizu Ami, Tanaka Rie, and many other renowned Japanese VAs dubbing the entire tale. The combination of incredible music and SFXs elevates the gameplay, bringing adventurers closer in touch with the world of Ys!

Good MMO That’s a Little Different

This MMO has many of the key activities you’d expect in an MMO—big pvp battles, tons of equipment and card development, and dungeon dailies—but they’re packaged in a way that makes this game feel different. Plus, it’s got some decent social features and encourages group play. It’s fun overall, and I recommend it. Definitely worth a try.

The main downside is the worst randomization system in progression I’ve seen in an MMO, which involves you losing multiple levels of progress when you fail a roll. Frustrating and not fun. The other downside is weak character customization.

So disappointed

I was so looking forward to this as a long time fan of the Ys series….that being said, this is a replica of all the others jpgs on the App Store. It lost what made the series so great. Instead of working aspects of criteria regarding guilds and teams into their game…..the took their game and turned it into all the others. If you have played the series….don’t look for any of that here in this game…this is honestly just like all the others except for the story. I guess I was hoping that they made a ys game and just incorporated online aspects of guild and friends….but I guess they will only leave those for consoles. To see the same game In All of these jpgs on the apple store just with different skins and stories is vastly disappointing. They just like all others have turned into money hungry companies…gems that you earn are behind a paywall….best armor and soul cards the same…. I would rather pay a straight amount for an actual YS game like Ys8 in the App Store than to continue to fall for these type of games. Very sad and disappointed that what made his series great is now gone…….I would have even rather have seen them make it like Genshin impact than this :-(

I feel that I have to spend money just to keep up at all, and even then, it’s very much an uphill struggle. Well, less a hill and more like Mount Everest. I could spend more, but it kind of has me so demoralized that I’m not going to. My BP gain has come to a near screeching halt. To get new mounts and other special “items” will have you spending 100 or more dollars per day which is absolutely ridiculous. I’ve been grinding for the level 70 gear since level 70 came available and I’ve not gotten the materials for one single piece. The drop rate is horrendous and the fact that you can only get rewards for three per day is ridiculous. Spending money won’t even help you with that either. Here’s how you balance the game and still make money; charge 20 dollars to download the game, remove all limits to pretty much everything and just let people play it, then throw in the microtransactions that are cosmetic ONLY, nothing to allow you to be more capable than anyone else. Only time grinding and actually playing should get you ahead.
