Ys VIII for PC launches in April

Confirmed by NIS America president Takuro Yamashita.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

The PC version of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will launch in April, NIS America president and CEO Takuro Yamashita told YouTube channel Greg’s RPG Heaven in a newly published video clip.

“Translation-wise, there’s no problem, but we’ve had some small issues about porting to the Steam version,” Yamashita told the YouTube channel. “Because we have to support a lot of different types of machines, so that’s why we need to improve the speed and optimize the PC version in a better way. But—is it all right to make the announcement about the new release date?—yeah, actually next month, in April, we are ready to release the PC Steam version of Ys VIII.”

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is currently available worldwide for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, and is coming to Switch this summer.
