NIS America confirmed the North American and European release dates for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana during a livestream event focused on the game (the full recording of which can currently be found on NIS America's Twitch channel). The game will be released for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in North America and on PC worldwide on September 12, 2017, with the European PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions arriving on September 15, 2017. NIS America also confirmed that Ys VIII will have both English and Japanese voiceovers.
Ys VIII is the latest mainline title in Nihon Falcom's long-running action RPG series. The game sees Adol (and long-time partner Dogi) shipwrecked along with many others on Seiren Island. Adol sets out to discover the mysteries of the island, which appear to be connected to his dreams of a mysterious blue-haired maiden named Dana.
