At roughly 1.2 GB, the patch should fix issues with translations and dialogue.
Though the PC version has been delayed to allow for further polish and optimization, Nihon Falcom’s Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana has received its new localization patch on PS4. This means that issues like badly translated dialogue, awkward voice acting and other annoyances should be remedied.
The update should be available as soon as you check for an update on the PS4 (as per ResetEra member CielTynave). At roughly 1.242 GB, it’s pretty small for an update that effectively makes the entire game’s dialogue and voice acting much more bearable. Or at least it does in practice – we won’t know how much has been fixed and to what extent until more feedback comes in.
As for the PC version, it’s been delayed to focus on “frame rate improvements” as well other optimizations for PC. The development will be shifted to a different developer for this purpose and once everything is rolling, we’ll receive a more concrete release schedule afterwards. Let us know in the meantime what you think of the localization patch.
