I think it'll be still fun without Adol. I wonder if those main characters won't talk like Adol  :D
From the looks of the trailer, it looks like these characters can actually talk. :)

I didn't see this tread at the bottom. :P Dang medications!  :-X I think it will be good, I have seen screenshots of Oath and heard its music and it is awesome. And, I was hoping that they would do the same to upgrade Ys 1 and 2 with glorious music.  ;D

Just only if american game companies wasn't so darn....  :~(

^^ that's awesome... You get to see about couple of bosses returning also ;D. Hm... I'm not sure I should buy this game now.... cause knowing falcom they're going to release an enhance version or collector's edition which makes the getting the original seem bleh  :-X. Anyway just 30 more days!!!

edit: just wondering what the end of the trailer meant by "yaku ni jiu" page. I'm guessing it about the artbook but how many pages is it?

Ys Origin Artbook
« Reply #21 on: Nov. 23, 2006, 08:26:16 AM »
The Ys Origin artbook is 120 pages long.  At least, that's what it says in the trailers and the website.

I saw the new trailers for the game last night.  I'm intrigued, but I'm still not sure if I'll preorder it or wait until my next Falcom batch order.  I'd like to get that Entry Book, but I don't know if the shipping charges will make it worthwhile.
-Not two, but three playable characters?  Not bad at all.  Strange how none of them are redheads like Adol and Abel.
-The in-game artwork is nice (typical Falcom style, ie: gorgeous), but the artwork on the site looks a little... off.  Am I the only one that thinks Feena and Leah looked better in Ys I-II Complete?
-Small continuity nitpick:  Ys Origin takes place 700 years before Ys I.  If that's the case, why are Feena & Leah's outfits more elaborate and "modern"?  They look very nice, I'll admit, but if they were wearing lace and stockings 700 years ago, why switch to more primitive attire (cloaks, one-piece slipons, etc...) 700 years later?  (Can amnesia influence someone's taste in clothes?  I dunno.  Like I said, just a minor nitpick.)

I'm wondering which of the playable characters will be my favorite.  Yunika, Yugo, or "The Claw"...  Either way, many forces are struggling for my salary and free time this season.  Falcom, Christmas presents, Twilight Princess, Portrait of Ruin, Hirameki visual novels.  I'm not poor, but I still have to exercise some discretion.

Feena and Reah sure looked better in I-II Complete, they look like teenagers in the new game. But I guess that's ok, after all they were 700 years younger (even godesses grow older, I guess). As for their clothes, I also think it fits, since in Origins they were the most important people of Ys at the height of its glory, and in Complete they were just exiles hiding among the normal populace of Esteria.
Anyway, I'm highly anticipating the game.

Besides it seems that in the game history ancient civilization was more advanced. The ruins of amnesia is a proof of that and the eye on the glass container who is covered in mystery. See the "background" thread. But in origins because one of playable characters is named Hugo Fact people now are assuming that he is the Dark Fact but something tells me that is his father the evil one possessed or not.

I like ranzor's explanation about feena and reah's clothing. Intuitively, I thought that people dress according to their surrounding tastes. For example, would you want to dress in high-class victorian age clothing in modern day society? of course not right, because it just wouldn't allow you to fit in. This is the same for the goddesses. Yes, they had nice clothing back then but that was when that society deemed it necessary.

Anyway, I'm highly anticipating the game.

That's what I was thinking at first; the goddesses changing their garb to remain incognito.  Then I remembered that the two (Feena, at least) had amnesia.  I was wondering if that might have had some influence.

As for Ys being at the height of civilization:  I was tempted to agree with that argument, but then I remembered the attire worn during the prologue of Ys I.  Then again, the prologue depicts mostly commoners.  It's possible that, the higher the position, the more elaborate the costume.

Either way, it doesn't really matter.  As a medium evolves, so too do the tastes of creators.  I don't think there are that many 1980's games (save maybe dating sims) that have characters wearing thigh-high socks and lace stockings.  Just have a look at Link:  it took him nearly two decades to start wearing pants (I wonder why they made him pantless to begin with...).

Feena's hairdo has changed quite a bit over the years, too:  on TurboGrafx, she had bangs; in Ys I-II Complete, she had a center part; in Origins, she has more of a rich-girl hairdo.  I`m thankful they didn't consider giving her those cliche debutante rolls (that'd be a reason to be pissed).  Leah, on the other hand, has been quite consistent.

I don't think anyone could sanely mistake Hugo / Yugo for anyone other than the ancestor of Dark Fact.  If I recall, they gave his first name at one point, but I can't remember it for the life of me.  All I remember is that it didn't sound at all like Hugo.

^^ I think the hair issue was to seperate the two so they won't look identical. observe:
http://falcom.com/yso/download/wp06/wp14_s.jpg their faces just look the same.

OMG they look very kawaii! Different clothes and hair to differentiate the twins. It is just me or Olha looks a little bite like them?

But remember that in the end of Ys I Feena asks Adol to forgive her for not telling him she was a goddess. I guess that means she was faking her amnesia.

In Dawn of Ys we're told of the dark sorceror Sieg Fact. I think he's Dark Fact. Hugo sure is his ancestor, unless he changed his name and lived 700 years more. Maybe the guy who appears in the trailer and is called just The Claw is really Sieg, maybe Hugo's lost brother or something.
