Ys 8 Back on PS Plus Extra After Backend Issues Are Solved

The PS4 version of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana has returned to PS Plus Extra after it disappeared from the service this past weekend. Following an investigation by publisher NIS America, it found "some issues on the backend" that have now been fixed. Unfortunately, the company wasn't able to explain what those problems were in more detail, but "the game has been restored and is once again available on PS Plus," it told Push Square.

Checking on both the PS Store and Sony's online webpages, Ys VIII has indeed been reinstated as a PS Plus Extra title. It's welcome news for JRPG fans, with the title now playable again alongside its sequel Ys IX: Monstrum Nox. Due to its sudden removal, it was feared PS5, PS4 games could be pulled off the service without even listing an expiry date. This doesn't appear to be the case, however.

PlayStation Plus Just Quietly Released the Most Overlooked Tactical RPG Of All Time

Jeanne d'Arc is a brilliant hidden gem that released on the PSP in 2007, and now the tactical RPG is finally available again through PlayStation Plus.

One of my favorite PSP titles of all time. This is probably my favorite Classic title to hit the PS Catalog yet. I had already bought it on Vita though as part of the PSP store, so I got it for free here to keep. That was quite generous of them, considering the HD overhaul and trophy addition. It would have been worth buying again. Every jrpg fan should try this out on PS+ catalog.

solideagle5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

can we not buy it separately? it seems its only for premium

OtterX5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

No? It shows up on mine as owned "Free" bc I bought it years ago.

If you have a Vita, I suppose you could still buy it, if it's still on the store there?

*edit - yep it's still there! $9.99 is a steal for this remaster. (of course free on PS+ catalog is amazing too! This is one I like owning though) You should be able to buy it there on that link on your PC.


Here's a reddit post about it: https://www.reddit.com/r/JR...

You can buy it separately, I had to use the PS app to find it on the store (the web store is so dysfunctional), I thought the game had skipped the aussie store, lol.

@OtterX - Yes you can buy this game without owning a Vita (like pretty much every other PS classic on PS4/PS5). I bought it yesterday on PS5. It also costed 10 USD.

BinaryMind5d ago

Yep, you get both the PS4 and PS5 versions if you buy it too.

Nothing beats ff tactics: war of the lions in my heart.

gold_drake5d ago

nothin beats Shinging Force 2, i mean, no contest haha xD

shinoff21835d ago

Shining force 2 was the first tactic game I ever played. Loved that turtle.

Lionsguard5d ago

Shining Force 1 had the more memorable characters imo.

OtterX5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

Yes! Final Fantasy Tactics is still my favorite tactical jrpg of them all!

TheColbertinator5d ago

Valkyria Chronicles is my #1 always

gold_drake5d ago

its rly good, playing right now actually ha.

Einhander19725d ago (Edited 5d ago )

I am playing this too, it's my first time. I really enjoy games like this and I'm having fun.

They also added Summoner which I do know quite a bit about it's also really good.

Great month for PS+ all round.

Edit: I hope Sony sees the popularity of this style of game because i have for years (since PS3) been wanting and saying they should make spin off games of their popular series but in different genres.

I have always wanted a tactical game from games like Uncharted, TLoU or Horizon (or any franchise really, I also think they could make a cool card battler Slay the Spire type game.

And they could make games like this quick and cheap compared to what they normally make.

Playing it now! The game is pretty big. I like that there is a lot of hidden stuff. It is a lot like Nier Automata more than I thought. But this game has some verticality to it. Recommended
