Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA official cover art without logo

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA is an upcoming action-RPG and the long-awaited eight installment of the rather excellent Ys series. It has been available in Japan for about a year now, but soon the Ys series will be making its hopefully triumphant return to the West after an eight-year-long hiatus!

If you're wondering what Lacrimosa of DANA is going to look like, and what exactly the quality of the English dub is going to sound like, you'll find your answers in the recently posted "Mysteries of the Isle" trailer. Have a look:

You can expect to see Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana on September 12th for the PC, while the PS4 and PS Vita versions will arrive on September 15th. I'm not exactly sure why the PlayStation versions are being delayed, but I must admit I'm quite surprised to see that the PC is actually getting something a few days earlier rather than a month later!

To learn more about Ys VIII and its characters I would recommend heading over to either the official website or Steam, though I'm afraid you won't find much just yet. And since I can offer you very little else given that I don't speak Japanese, allow me to send you off with the opening video that feels like its trying to advertise a brand new anime series. Enjoy!
