Description: 

Ys III: Wanderers from Ys is an action role-playing game developed by Nihon Falcom Corporation. It is the third game in the Ys series of video games.

Ys III was initially released for the NEC PC-8801 and NEC PC-9801 in 1989, and versions for the MSX 2 and Sharp X68000 soon followed. In 1991, a number of console ports were produced: versions for the TurboGrafx-16, Famicom, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, and Sega Genesis.

It has been three years since the events of Ys I and Ys II. The hero, Adol Christin, and his friend Dogi are on a journey to Dogi's hometown. Upon arriving, they learn of a crisis facing the people, and Adol set off to help them.

The gameplay of Ys III is a sharp departure from the previous two games. Instead of the previously-used top-down camera view, 'Ys III has become a side-scrolling platform-action styled game. The combat has also changed: the player must push a button to make Adol swing his sword and attack enemies.

The RPG-style statistics and experience system still exists in Ys III, however. A new addition to this area is the "ring" system: Adol can acquire and equip rings that provide special effects while equipped. A new attribute, "Ring Power", is consumed while rings are active.
