Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

The relocalization patch for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is now live for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, publisher NIS America announced.

The relocalization, which weighs 1.16 gigabytes on PlayStation 4 and 279 megabytes on PS Vita, includes changes in the script, item names, in-game terminology, monster and boss names, graphical text, and a fully re-recorded English dialogue.

For PS Vita users, the relocalization patch will be saved on the memory card and overwrite the previous patch. If PS Vita users own the digital version, it will take up extra space in the system / memory card. Retail copy owners will have the patch saved on the memory card.

NIS America will be live streaming Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana on its Twitch channel today at 3:00 p.m. PT / 6:00 p.m. ET.
