E3 2013: Ys Celceta: Sea of Trees Gets a Story Synopsis from XSEED

In the middle of all this E3 madness, we thought we’d take a brief moment to talk about something that isn’t Sony destroying Microsoft, a game unveiling or Square Enix announcement. XSEED’s upcoming localization of Ys Celceta for the PlayStation Vita is fast approaching its Fall launch date. Because of this, the game’s North American publisher is leaking details about the title slowly but surely. Today’s news comes in the form of the game’s story synopsis, which XSEED was so kind to provide its fans.

So, go ahead, read it; then get stoked for a game that is certainly going to be under appreciated, but adored by longtime Ys and JRPG fiends. Then check out the fresh E3 trailer at the bottom.

A bustling town deep in the frontier at the foot of an endless sea of trees… It is into this wild and untamed setting that a young man collapses, memories gone and only his name to guide him.

Bereft of his past, Adol Cristin wanders the town of Casnan searching for clues to his identity. Joined by a thief who claims to have known him, the young adventurer helps rescue doomed miners from a collapse; an act which attracts the attention of the Romun Army general in town. Impressed with their skills, the pair is enlisted to explore the sea of trees and map the vast expanses of Celceta – a task which many have attempted in the past, but from which none have ever returned.

Alone in this strange and uncharted frontier, Adol must brave the perilous sea of trees as he struggles to regain his memories and decide whom he can trust, and who is simply attempting to take advantage of his memory loss in order to deceive him…
