The PlayStation 4 version of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will launch in Japan on May 25, 2017, Falcom announced during its general meeting.
The game, that has sold-through 100,000 copies on PS Vita in Japan, has been majorly upgraded for the PS4 version.
The PlayStation 4 version will run at 60 frames per second, feature new actions and improved control response, and improved graphics to match the performance of PlayStation 4, including anti-aliasing, point light, soft shadow, volumetrics lighting, and so on.
A “counterattack” system will be introduced, it’ll let the inhabitants of the Drifting Village mount counterattacks on enemy bases, in response to the village defense mechanic that was already implemented in the PS Vita version.
Lacrimosa of Dana was released for PS Vita in Japan on July 21st, and neither version has been announced for a western release so far. The previous game of the series, Ys: Memories of Celceta, was released in the west as a joint effort between Xseed Games and NIS America between 2013 and 2014. Hopefully they’ll pick this one up as well.
