Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Localization Fix and PC Version Delayed to Early 2018

NIS America has announced the localization update and fix for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is being delayed to sometime early next year. The game’s PC version has also been delayed to launch alongside this new localization.

“This is going to come as no surprise to many of you, but after beginning this revision, we have realized that due to the scope of this undertaking, we will unfortunately not be able to release by the end of this month as we had originally intended,” NISA senior associate producer Alan Costa noted in an update.

The localization update features a revised translation of the game’s current release with a new translator, a full re-edit of the entire script (both voiced and non-voiced parts), re-recording of voice work, debugging of the new build, and corrections to items and such.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is currently available for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the game here (we recommend it but note the translation needs work).
