The titular Dana will be joining Adol as a playable character in Ys VIII.

Falcom has taken to this week’s issue of Famitsu to announce that Adol won’t be the only protagonist of note in Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana – you’ll also be playing as the titular Dana.

The stronger and faster Dana will be available to play when Adol’s asleep; her story playing out in his dreams. Aside from a change of pace though, Dana and Adol’s stories will have an effect on each other; so choose your path(s) wisely!

That’s all we’ve gleaned for now, but Ys: VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is due out sometime this Summer in Japan – so I’m sure we’ll hear more soon. 😉
