Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim, Part of the Popular RPG Series Is Coming to Mobile for iOS and Android, but as a Mobile MMORPG

Esports betting has grown and grown during the lockdown, and with more money flowing into the industry during the global COVID-19 pandemic, MMORPG games have been popular destinations for sports bettors, such as on 20xbet site, who are looking to broaden their betting scope. 

What Kind of Game Is It?

Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim is part of the longlived JRPG series Ys. The latest installment, Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, was released in 2019.

Yet, the mobile implementation of the action RPG is not a simple port of the sixth part of the series. It is an MMORPG based on the story of a singleplayer game.

What is the original Ys VI about? In the Ys series, you always take on the role of the hero Adol Christin, who travels the world and has adventures. 800 years before these adventures, humans stole a powerful artifact of the winged Eldeen, the Ark of Napishtim. This is a computer protected by an AI. This AI went berserk and almost flooded the entire Atlas continent. The Eldeen created a new seal for the computer at great sacrifice to prevent further catastrophes.

In Ys VI, the sinister Ernst sets out to find this seal and use the power of the Ark for himself. Hero Adol must stop him.

From Single Player to MMORPG

How does the mobile game differ from the original? Instead of playing a premade hero, you can create your own. You play in the same world and time as the original game. It is not yet clear whether you will also follow the same story.

Besides, the graphics have been reworked. In the singleplayer game from 2003, only the environments were created in 3D; the characters were 2D sprites. In the MMORPG, 3D characters wander through 3D landscapes and both look very good. There is significantly more detail than in the original, and the textures are higher resolution. What has remained the same is the perspective. Ys VI is played from an angled viewpoint.

How Does the Gameplay Work

You explore the large fantasy world together with friends and fight monsters and bosses in fast realtime battles.

Incidentally, there is no autoplay, as some mobile MMORPGs offer.

If you meet NPCs, you can talk to them to pick up a quest, for example. Cutscenes continue the story. These look like something out of a 3D animated anime.

When will the game be released? A beta test of the MMORPG Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim is currently taking place in China. The title does not yet have a release date. It is not yet clear when we will also be able to play.
