Blast from the past.
Ys 8: Lacrimosa of Dana will be the first entry in the storied Japanese action RPG series to hit a Nintendo platform in a very long time, and it looks like publishers NIS America are going all out to make the occasion a memorable one. For instance, as per the latest announcement they have made, the Switch version of the game will come with Adol’s silver-red armor available for everyone out fo the gate.
This is notable because the silver-red armor was available exclusively a a pre-order incentive to customers on the PS4, and it is yet another way that NISA is going out of the way to sweeten the pot for potential Switch owners with the new game a bit.
As for the armor itself, while it is a throwback to classic, older Ys games (and looks super cool), it doesn’t actually influence Adol’s stats in the slightest, so you’re not forced to use it (or aren’t actually missing on much if you don’t have it already). Ys 8 is available now on PS4, PS Vita, and PC, with the Switch version due out on June 26.
