Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Review – NerdBite

NerdBite: Ys VIII's action elements and sense of adventure are its strong points. It has a great soundtrack to boot. While the visuals are a little bit past its time, and the combat is fairly simplistic, it paces itself quite well. Ys VIII is the perfect starting point for new fans to the series and fans of RPGs.

Hopefully they release the NA version not too long after or at least offer an English dub version for Asia at launch and I would end up buying both.

There's no English version for Asia.

considering Falcom doesn't even allow work to start on localization until the game is complete, I don't see this coming stateside "not too long" after release. It's also why we're so behind with Trails. I mean at this point we're a whole 2 games back with Kuro no Kiseki 2 [I believe] having released almost a year ago in JP.

That being said, I can only hope that if NISA is the publisher for NA that they have time set aside in their schedule to get YsX localized and out the door w/in a year. The good news for Ys is at least there isn't a backlog of games already.

I hope these stages and time limits were done for the demo only. I still have to finish 9, love the games but falcom need a bigger budget to upgrade their engine, these games still look like ps2 era graphics lol

I finally played Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana on PS5. Was it worth the wait? | Technobubble Gaming

Jason Hidalgo: "Nearly seven years after first releasing on Vita, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana holds up incredibly well even today. Despite its old-school aesthetics, the game looks nice and runs especially well on the PS5, thanks to its high and consistent frame rate. Granted, the old-school gameplay might not float the boat of folks who want something more modern. For fans of classic JRPGs, however, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana’s interesting characters combined with its fun action combat and base-building and crafting mechanics make it one of the best games I’ve ever played in the genre."
