The intro has always been in French, intentionally, even in the Japanese version.
Ys is a mythical french region/city. Hence, practically everyone in the series is french.

The more you know <Insert shooting star here>

Also the French is really bad as a homage to the original voice over which was very bad French spoken by a Japanese woman so they made really bad French spoken by a Polish woman for the Western localisation.

Was wondering what this was... It's screwing with me. I'm french, text is in english, what I'm hearing doesn't exactly match what I'm reading... Giving me conflicting information. Doesn't help that it's broken french.

I'm quite certain that YS is a celtic myth, not a French one, so it would have made waaay more sense that they spoke in a celtic language, like Irish or Breton.

They might have messed that one up, too.

I am thinking it could be a dialect of French spoken by the people of Ys, maybe an ancestral dialect or a descendent of modern French.

Well, French comes from vulgar Latin, so, aggaing, it would be far fecht.
Besides, this is a game made by Japaneses, located in the other corner of the world, at least they knew were Ys was located and put some efford.
