Ys VIII and Ys IX are two adventures that feature protagonist Adol Christin. In the former, he is marooned on a mysterious island and must uncover its past involving a blue-haired maiden in order to escape. The latter sees Adol trapped in the Prison City of Balduq, where he is transformed into a creature called a Monstrum with extraordinary powers. He along with other Monstrums must find the truth behind the Monstrum curse in order to break free of it.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III follows Rean Schwarzer and his new Class VII as they discover a plot that potentially throws the Erebonian Empire into political disarray. Cold Steel IV sees the continent of Zemuria dragged into a war with the Erebonian Empire, and it’s up to Rean and his allies to unite against the conflict.

The Stadia titles will cost $59.99 except for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, which will be $39.99. Check out The Escapist’s review of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV.
