Always on the lookout for a new adventure, the Ys series' red-haired protagonist Adol Christin will be journeying to Europe in early 2014, as he races like a maniac through the PlayStation Vita's Ys Memories of Celceta. As foretold earlier in the year, the release is due out imminently in North America.

Tackling an expansive overworld filled with monsters and dungeons along with his loyal AI controlled party members, the latest entry in the age-old franchise sounds like more of what we've come to expect from the series, and we can't wait to run rings around opponents with the handheld's responsive left analog stick.

Are you breaking out the red hair dye in preparation? Will you be eagerly listening to some of the series' superb musical scores to fill time? Trawl through YouTube with us in the comments section below.
