A new interview posted by French website ActuGaming with Falcom President Toshihiro Kondo confirmed the current development of Ys IX. Although several fans expected a remake of Ys V would be the companies next game, Kondo quickly dismissed that theory. There wasn’t any further information available about the title or what platforms it’s being developed for but given the success of the recent Ys VIII port for Nintendo Switch, it wouldn’t be surprising if it a version for Nintendo’s hybrid console were in the works.
