Description Edit | History

Ys V: Kefin, The Lost City of Sand (イースV 失われた砂の都ケフィン Īsu Faibu Ushinawareta Suna no Miyako Kefin) is an action role-playing game for the Super Famicom developed by Nihon Falcom Corporation. It is the fifth game in the Ys series of video games. Ys V was originally released in 1995. In 1996, Falcom released a second version of the game for the Super Famicom with a higher difficulty level, known as Ys V Expert. A PlayStation 2 remake of Ys V was released in 2006 by Taito Corporation, titled Ys V: Lost Kefin, Kingdom of Sand.

Adol is travelling through new lands, in search of more adventure, when he hears of the vanished desert city of Kefin. He sets off to investigate this ancient city's disappearance.

The RPG-style statistical elements and the overhead view of most of the previous games are retained in Ys V. However, the combat system has been changed again; the player now must press a button to swing Adol's sword and attack enemies. Adol is also given the ability to jump and defend with his shield in Ys V. A new magic system is introduced in Ys V as well, which requires the player to charge up spells by holding a button before they can be cast.

The soundtrack to Ys V was composed by Falcom's Sound Team JDK. Ys V has received three soundtrack releases to date: Ys V Image Album (1996): A short selection of original tracks from Ys V, followed by three arranged tracks from Falcom's J.D.K. Band, and a vocal arrangement. Music from Ys V (1996): The complete soundtrack to Ys V. Ys V Orchestra Version (1996): A selection of orchestrally-arranged pieces from Ys V.
