Are the Ys games tied together? I've only played the first one.

There are a few references and such, but the games are mostly self-contained. No requirement to play other games to understand the story.

Well, was hoping for Trails in the Sky, but Ys is excellent as well, if not my cut of tea.

Didn't Ys 7 come out on PC in China?

Also, TiTS. People love TiTS. And, uh, Gurumin is on PC too, right? though I don't know if that was an Xseed joint.

Not significantly. Each is an independent adventure, although there are reoccurring characters.

All you really need to know is that you play as Adol and are accompanied by his pal Dogi.

I adored the PSP version. Favorite Ys by far. Would buy again happily. What I really want, though, is Ys 6, since I never finished the PSP version, and I would love to play the superior PC version.

I don't know how a Japanese studio who made PC games for years can be seen as now embracing it, haha. This is just a case of Falcom opening their eyes and seeing they have a shot at some money.

Speaking of XSEED/FALCOM, it's baffling they waited so much.

other things you can get from the registry.

it has 4 launch options

dx8
dx9
dx8_config
dx9_config

so you can pick direct8 or 9. dunno what that means but worth sharing i guess. no other info.

Ys 7 is only on PC in China if you're from the future. For what it's worth, I don't believe kind words have been spoken over the other Chinese done Falcom conversions.

Gurumin had nothing to do with XSEED.

I have the PSP versions on UMD and was about to buy them on PSN to play them on the Vita. Will buy them again on Steam for dat glorious 60 fps.

Edit: Usually how long does it take from registry entry to official announcement?

It has been a long time since I've played but wasn't Adol the protagonist in the first as well?

Gurumin was Falcom, I think. It's one of my favorite PSP games. I didn't know who published it in the states, just like I don't know who handled Ys 6 PSP.

Unless these ports sell godly I think the only way we see the other Trails games is through Aeria's Google Translate/Crowd Source translations for smartphones.

XSEED has easily become one of my favorite publishers this gen.

If they can work with more japanese developers in bringing more pc titles over then we can see Steam even overtake or at least challenge the consoles in the JRPG side of things.
