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.
