The next chapter in the Ys series finally gets a release date. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA will launch on September 12th, 2017, for both the PS4, PS Vita, and Steam. Sure, that’s still three months way, but it’s nice to know when we’ll see the title. I’ve been waiting on this since it was announced.
Ys returns with a brand new adventure for the first time in 8 years! Adol awakens shipwrecked and stranded on a cursed island. There, he and the other shipwrecked passengers he rescues form a village to challenge fearsome beasts and mysterious ruins on the isolated island.
