After much deliberation, Restar Games has officially launched Ys VI Online: The Ark of Napishtim for the Android and iOS platforms. As previously reported, Ys VI Online is the mobile version of Ys VI, the much celebrated action RPG developed by Falcom and released for the PC back in 2003.
The story of the game as follows from the original game’s Steam page:
Red-haired adventurer extraordinaire Adol Christin has finally reunited with his best pal, Dogi, and is eager to set sail for new adventures in Afroca. It seems fate has other plans for him, however, as a pirate captain named Ladoc makes him an offer he simply can’t refuse: a chance to explore a dangerous, uncharted archipelago in the Atlas Ocean that may hold treasures of heretofore unseen value.
Never ones to back away from a good mystery, Adol and Dogi both agree to join Ladoc on this expedition aboard his ship, the “Tres Mares” — but no sooner does it weigh anchor than the Romuns, their sights set on the same curious islands of Canaan, attack the wayward pirates and ultimately knock Adol overboard, leaving him for dead.
Some time later, he washes ashore in Canaan itself, alive but weakened, rescued and resuscitated by two young girls named Isha and Olha who sport long ears and bushy tails. They are of the native “Rehda” tribe, and it seems Adol is not the first human to arrive here — nor are humans particularly welcome…
Ys VI Online will retain the original Ys VI story while introducing several qualify of life improvements and features as well, such as a fashion system and the inclusion of pets that will help you in battle. For more details, be sure to drop by the official website.
