Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is due out in Japan on July 21. I’m not usually a fan of pointless outfit & accessory DLCs but I have to admit that those dolls are pretty cute! What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!

    I like the outfits.

    the HaguHagu Feena attachment is a nostalgic salty punch to the wound to the gut. the reason Adol doesn’t hook up with the other girls in the past six games being attached to his arm must be painful.

    Each time a new article for this game comes out, I drool. XD

    Naturally, I like the skimpier outfit for the gals. I just hope this runs well on the Vita, the previous one skipped quite a lot.
