NIS bringing Ys VIII to Switch in 2018

Ys returns with a brand-new adventure for the first time in 8 years. Nintendo announced during their Nintendo Direct mini that Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA will come to the Nintendo Switcn in 2018.

Adol awakens shipwrecked and stranded on a cursed island. There, he and the other shipwrecked passengers he rescues form a village to challenge fearsome beasts and mysterious ruins on the isolated island. Amidst this, Adol begins to dream of a mysterious blue-haired maiden living in an unknown world. Join Adol as he unravels the riddle of the cursed isle and the blue-haired maiden Dana in Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA.

This is the first game in the primarily PlayStation Ys series to be released on a Nintendo platform since Ys Strategy on the Nintendo DS in 2006 and Ys IV: Mask of the Sun on the Super Famicom in Japan back in 1993.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA was initially released for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in September 2017 and will will be released for Steam at the end of January 2018. The game will be released for Nintendo Switch in Summer 2018.
