Back in June 2015 we reported on DotEmu that has announced that they could be bringing the 2nd installment into the Ys Chronicles franchise to Android in the near future. Well today is that ‘near future’ as Ys Chronicles II has become readily available for Android devices on the internet Play.
For people unfamiliar with this game or franchise, Ys Chronicles is definitely an Action-RPG which has a pretty long history. Ys itself is a JRPG franchise that was originally released in The united states in 1990 under the slightly different name, Ys Book I & II. However, Ys Chronicles was a remake of these games which also featured a lot of enhancements and came packed together, before being released in the early 2000s for PC, as well as the PSP. This is when the franchise really took off in popularity, though it was pretty popular before then.
Ys Chronicles II for mobile comes with all the content the original version had, including retaining the ‘bump’ system which mean you literally have to run into, or pounce, an opponent to be able to initiate combat. However, like the majority of DotEmu releases, this one does have some additions and enhancements done to it. There’s two different modes you are able to play through: Adventure mode (play through the game’s story normally) and Time Attack. Adventure mode also offers two different graphical possibilities, with one being Original and also the other labeled as Chronicles.
Ys Chronicles II Features:
? Choose from three soundtracks: Chronicles, Original, and PC-88
? Two game modes: Adventure and Time Attack
? Two graphics modes (obtainable in Adventure mode only): Chronicles and Original
? Four difficulty levels
? HD Menus

This game also comes with three different soundtrack styles to select from and four different difficulty levels. Addititionally there is controller support available. Interestingly enough, DotEmu has added in some new weapons, armor, and artifacts towards the game that have been not in the original.
For people looking to snap up a duplicate of this game, Ys Chronicles II can be obtained from Google Play for $4.99 without any IAPs or anything like this. To celebrate this release, Ys Chronicles I has been put on sale at 50% off for a short time as well. You should check out the game’s extended trailer below.
