Conclusion: If you like the sensibilties and styles of JRPGs but you want something faster-paced and more hands-on, Ys: The Oath in Felghana is a fantastic choice. It’s fast, looks great, and the enhanced features of the remake clean things up into a great experience.

Conclusion: Ys: Oath in Felghana is an excellent addition to the series, and for western fans eager to gobble up the whole story, this is an opportunity that cannot be missed. Growing up I always knew of the existence of Ys, but it was never very big (or easy to find) in my area.
