Ys: Book I & II is an enhanced remake of the first two Ys games. This game marks the first time that western audiences got a chance to play Ys II, as only Ys I got a western release prior to this game.

Regional Differences

Graphics

Compared to the Japanese version, the English version of Zalem is wearing more and her eye color is slightly different due to a palette change.

Enemy Stats

Nearly every enemy (and a few bosses) have been altered for the English version of the game.

  • "Level" refers to the cap at which Adol may obtain full experience from a monster when taking it out. If Adol's level is higher than the target's, the earned experience is reduced in half per each level (for example, if Adol is three levels higher than the target killed, he obtains 1/8th the normal experience). Higher level changes are marked in green since Adol can obtain more experience with those enemies than in the Japanese version.
  • Some bosses do not include a strength stat because their attack does not involve physical collision.
  • The names used are based off the Complete/Chronicles edition. The original manuals do have nearly-identical names, but the list is incomplete.
  • Details marked in green indicate a stats nerf or rewards buff. Details marked in red indicate the reverse.

Book I

  • Enemy speed and gold values did not change. The changes make the first half of the game a bit harder in the English version, but less grinding is required due to the improvements in experience collected and the increase in monster levels.
  • Adol's normal level is shown as 1-62, but the in-game data uses 0-61. Raw data is posted for comparison purposes.

Book II

  • Enemy speed values did not change. The changes made purchasing items easier, but raised the difficulty of monsters and made it more difficult to gain levels (with the exception of some bosses).
  • Adol's normal level is shown as 1-62, but the in-game data uses 0-27 with Adol already having a minimum level of 34 before starting Ys-II. Raw data is posted for comparison purposes.
  • Many enemies have more than one entry because they are used in more than one area, but often have different stats.
