Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana

Ys has traditionally been a very niche series, even within Japan, but it looks like the newest game in the franchise has managed to break out wider than any previous title has. Developer (and publisher, at least in Japan) Falcom announced that the action RPG has now hit 500,000 units in sales worldwide.

To be clear, this includes sales from the PS4 version, as well as the PS Vita version (available only in Japan), the PC version (available only in the west), and from the Nintendo Switch version. Being available on a wider range of platforms probably contributed to the game selling higher than previous titles have managed, which have typically been exclusive to only one system,

Falcom also announced that a Christmas Gift Package for the PS4 version of the game will be available in Japan to commemorate this success. It will come with a special PS4 theme, with Christmas style Ys music, as well as two cards.
