Just bought it and it's in French rather than English.
I just bought the game via the Summer sale and installed it.All the audio is in french anyway to get english audio?

The intro is intentionally in French; there is no other spoken audio.

Phewww ok.It was pretty bad french by the way definately not a native speaker.

It was probably the original Japanese audio -- as in, the audio from Japan of someone speaking French, badly.

you might find this a helpful explanation for the french audio:

The original Japanese release had a Japanese woman speaking French with a horrid accent. This version has a Polish woman speaking French as intentional homage to that. As FlamboyantMongoose pointed out, the video is narrated in French because that's the origin of the legend of Ys, though the video game Ys has little or nothing to do with the European legend.

As in, the new version can be understood by speakers of French, but isn't natively French (which would spoil both the fact that Esteria is not France and that the original was... something). You should hear the original.

So it was an intentional design choice? Interesting.
