Through official site updates, Falcom has revealed a few more tidbits about Nayuta no Kiseki: a new chunk of world known as the Star Garden, located in the center of Lost Heaven; and the character Seram, knight-accomplice to the mage Zekust, both of whom pursue Noi for the Master Gear she holds.

Speaking with Dengeki Playstation, Falcom CEO Toshihiro Kondo briefly brought up the Vita entry in the Ys series, Ys Celceta: Sea of Trees. The game has “evolved greatly” from its TGS 2011 showing, and more details will be released following Nayuta no Kiseki. Sea of Trees is expected to launch sometime this year.
As for Nayuta, Kondo indicated the game has no ties to past games in the Legend of Heroes series, hence its absence from the title. Further details were also revealed: the game world has boundaries and is not spherical, as no one knows what lies beyond the sea; the aforementioned mysterious girl, Noi, emerges from one of the ruins falling from the sky; gameplay and battle systems have been adjusted in response to feedback about prior games’ slow pacing; and boss fights were apparently one of the first things the staff designed.
Title says it all; check out Nayuta no Kiseki‘s official site here. While gameplay details are sparse, the story reportedly centers around the island of Nokosare Shima (“Left Behind Island,” apparently). Shooting stars and odd ruins have fallen from the skies around the island, with particularly strange stones, called Star Fragments, tantalizing those who find them with visions of another world.
You play one of the curious locals – the star-gazing, 15-year-old Nayuta – as he and his pal Signa investigate the ruins. Naturally there’s a mysterious girl involved, named Noi, though it’s not yet clear how their paths intersect.
