Chance of US release = 0, confirmed. Anyone play these? Are they like 4 where instead of having an attack button you just run into enemies like a retard to kill them?

The only one I've ever played was the decently fun one on PS2 and the slowed-down PSP port.

I've played all of them. They're all pretty great.

YS3 for SNES was good stuff, though it was really hard in some areas.

The Ys Ark of Nappyheadedhoes was a competent ARPG until it started sucking. Two words: Dash jump.

Ys III was pretty crappy. Good concept, but the collision detection made it suck rocks. I ended up beating it but I had to cheat to do so.

The only other one I played was Ys IV, which, for aforementioned attacking woes, I played for little more than 15 minutes before I wondered what kind of rock the developers were on. I, like I'm sure many people, thought my controller was broken...

I've somewhat enjoyed what I've experienced with the Ys series (I even have the Complete PC versions installed on my computer, with their respective translations, to boot), but I dunno if I'd look into these as well considering they've been ported to death, and I still haven't experienced the Complete versions aside from the Boss Rush modes or whatever...

Fun fact - Ys I and II have been ported to more systems (generally, they are packaged together) than any given Final Fantasy franchise.

Why talk of ports?
These are ground-up remakes, not ports.
