NIS America’s final announcement of the night is their upcoming localization of Ys VIII.

Announced by guest presenter Toshihiro Kondo – President of Nihon Falcom, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is headed West via a partnership with NIS America! They’re looking to deliver the shipwreck-instigated title to your hands this Fall, allowing you to take up the mantle as Adol (or sometimes the mysterious Dana) and explore a vast island populated with some unique life.

Sound interesting? Check out the announcement video below for a better look (though it’s notable that’s not the Vita version that they’re showing).

Yay! I’ve been hoping this one would come over for a while, so it’s great to finally have confirmation. Aside from the video however, not much has been announced yet… though we do have a look at one of the ways you can pick it up.

A limited edition of the game is already up for pre-order in NIS America’s website, including the following items for that $79.99US purchase price;

  • Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA for PS Vita
  • “The Codex of Adol Christin: Periplus of the Goethe Sea Writing Materials” Hardcover Book
  • Softcover Art Book
  • Original Soundtrack
  • Acrylic Bookends
  • Cloth Poster (33″ x 40″)
  • Steelbook® Collector’s Case
  • Collector’s Box

Sound good? Well get that pre-order in, and keep an eye out in the coming months; there’s likely to be a lot more updates on the way to that Fall release – including one sporting some release dates. 😉

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is headed West this Fall thanks to NIS America.

Feels good, man.

    Woot, the YS series needed to come back to us in the West, Memories of Celceta just wasn’t enough. I’ve been waiting on this one for awhile, I had begun to lose hope of localization tbh.
