Falcom’s Ys 8: Lacrimosa of Dana will be releasing for the PlayStation 5 this Fall, courtesy of NIS America. Originally released in 2017 for PlayStation Vita and PS4, the action RPG would then release on PC and Nintendo Switch in 2018 followed by Google Stadia in April 2021.
NIS America’s official tweet contains some gameplay footage but aside from running at 60 frames per second, it’s unclear what the PS5 version will offer. At the very least, it should be akin to Ys 9: Monstrum Nox which received an update to run at 4K resolution on the console. Time will tell so stay tuned for more details.
Ys 8: Lacrimosa of Dana follows adventurer Adol Christin as he and his long-time friend Dogi end up shipwrecked on the mysterious Isle of Seiren. Teaming up with other passengers, including playable characters like Laxia and Sahad, Adol explores the island to find a way off. In the meantime, the fate of a mysterious maiden named Dana also plays out and ties into the island’s history. For more details, check out our review here.
