Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA for the console end of its coverage, despite a last-minute delay for the PC crowd. The latest addition to this action RPG franchise places main character Adol, stranded, on an island with a fair lot going on. He, along with two other characters at a time, compose the player party and different members of the party have superior effectiveness up against different enemy types. Much of the game is hack and slashy, which Ys series fans may be familiar with. That said, bosses aren’t pushovers and the story attempts to do better than its predecessors.
See the launch trailer below. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA is out now for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
