Back in March, NIS America announced a PS5 version of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA at New Game Plus Expo. Ys VIII is a fantastic action RPG and one of Falcom’s best games ever. Today, NIS America announced the Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA PS5 release date for North America and Europe alongside the release of a story trailer for the game. Watch the trailer from NIS America below:

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA PS5

I’m curious what enhancements the game will get since it already runs perfectly on PS4 Pro more or less and is well above 1080p there. Hopefully this version supports 120fps and includes all DLC right from the start in the base game disc as well. I’ve played Ys VIII multiple times already and cannot wait to jump back into Adol’s best adventure so far this fall on PS5. 

Check out the offiical Ys VIII PS5 website here and the Steam page here with co-op support. It is going to be interesting to see if the co-op feature makes its way to PS5.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA is out now on PS4, PS Vita, Nintendo Switch, and PC platforms. It releases for PS5 on November 18 in Europe and November 15 in North America.
