Nintendo Switch Gets Ys Origin Physical Edition, Up For Pre-Order Now

Classic action-RPG Ys Origin will launch on Switch later this year, and there's a stunning Collector's edition on the way.


Another classic game is making its way to Nintendo Switch later this year: Publisher Dotemu announced Ys Origin will release on the Switch sometime in 2020. In addition to its Eshop launch, Ys Origin is getting a Collector's edition distributed by Limited Run Games, and it's pleasantly affordable.

The Ys Origin Collector's edition for Nintendo Switch went up for pre-order today, and it's selling for $70. The Collector's edition gets you a physical copy of the game for Switch, a CD with the soundtrack, a steelbook case, a Collector's edition perfect bound art book, and an 18" by 24" reversible poster. This is a limited-time open pre-order period, and you have until Sunday, September 6 to place your order for the Ys Origin Collector's edition. Products ship two to four months after the initial sale.

Ys Origin first released worldwide on Steam in 2012 and later released on PS4, PS Vita, and Xbox One. The game takes place in a land called Ys and features three playable characters: a knight called Yunica Tovah, a mage named Hugo Fact, and a mysterious fighter known as "The Claw." In Ys Origin, the world is on the brink of destruction, and a search party sets off to find the protective goddesses who have disappeared into the night. Playing as each character unlocks more of the story and allows you to experience their distinct combat style and skillset.

If you're curious to try out the original before shelling out for the Collector's edition, Ys Origin is on sale on Steam as part of the Steam Summer Sale--you can currently grab it for just 5 bucks.
