YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG will receive a major overhaul in 2022 thanks to a new – and free – definitive edition update, Ysbryd Games has revealed.
Called YIIK I.V, the update will launch across Switch, PS4, Steam and GOG and is said to reimagine the original Japanese-style RPG with a variety of improvements. The game’s publisher says to expect “more engaging combat, reworked story events, new characters, redesigned cutscenes, new music, and much more, all interwoven with the existing game.”
Here’s what to expect:
REIMAGINED CUTSCENES – See YIIK through fresh eyes, experiencing the most compelling and accessible version to date
NEW STORY CONTENT – Meet new characters, challenge new story bosses and dungeons, and spend more time with the supporting cast
QUALITY OF LIFE – Square up with improved combat while enjoying better load times and a wealth of other improvements
NEW TUNES – I.V includes over 45 minutes of new, never-before-heard music
If you haven’t heard about YIIK before, we’d urge you to check out our review of the original game, which is still currently available to download on the Switch eShop. We gave the game a very solid 8/10, calling it “a dazzling explosion of stylistic presentation and compelling strangeness.”
Remember, the upcoming YIIK I.V release will be offered as a free update to those who own the base game and will launch at some point in 2022.
