That was sooner than expected.
The Ys series will be returning to Nintendo after a very long time, with last year’s excellent Ys 8: Lacrimosa of Dana, which launched for PS4 and PS Vita, with a PC version also announced, confirmed for Nintendo Switch earlier this year, courtesy of NIS America. At that time, all we knew was that the game would be out some time during the Summer.
Now, however, we know when exactly to expect it- and it will be a shorter wait than you might have imagined. Ys 8: Lacrimosa of Dana will launch on the Nintendo Switch on June 26 in North America, and on June 29 in Europe. If you need more convincing that this is cause for excitement, there’s also a brand new trailer for the game’s Switch version, which announces the release date, that you can see for yourself below.
Ys 8 launched on PS4 and PS Vita last year, and in spite of severe localization issues (subsequently patched out), it was a great game. A PC version of the game, long delayed, is scheduled for April in addition to the Switch version. Both versions will launch with the fixed localization.
