From the press release about the story:
”Set 700 years before the first title in the Ys series, the game’s story focuses on the twin Goddesses and the mysterious Black Pearl made famous in Ys I & II, and follows the adventures of several playable characters as they ascend a menacing tower built by demons, fighting for their lives in that classic fast-paced action RPG style Ys fans have come to know and love.”
