While the North America PlayStation 4 and PS Vita owners will be shortly treated to a fantastic JRPG, that is Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA, PC owners will have to wait a bit longer. A day before its North American release date, NIS America has announced that the PC version of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA has been delayed.
Sorry gang, but reasons cited is that the PC version needs a bit more work. At the moment there’s also no ETA on when we can expect it to be released.
