Earlier this month we brought you the news that Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will be released in Japan in the summer of 2016. Now Falcom have shared some details of the story.

Adol is on a passenger ship called The Lombardia, headed from Xandria to the continent of Eresia. The ship is attacked by a giant creature and sinks. Adol washes ashore on a cursed island, known as Seiren Island.

During the game Adol will help out other castaways and survivors and will build a base on the island. When he sleeps he’ll dream of a mysterious pale girl.

Ys VIII will be a fast paced action RPG. As well as fast action and party-based battles with skill attacks, similar to Ys: Memories of Celceta, there will be new aerial jump attacks as well as systems that need you to cooperate with castaways.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will release in Japan in summer 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Did you enjoy Ys: Memories of Celceta? Are you looking forward to Ys VIII? Let us know in the comments below!
