Ys VIII: Lacrimosa Of DANA Receives PS5 Release Date

NIS America has revealed Ys VIII: Lacrimosa Of DANA will finally be coming to the PlayStation 5 later this year. The game was originally released over four years ago as one of the biggest gaming sequels to come in a while, as it was the first time in eight years Ys had a new title for the franchise. Since that time, it has become one of the more revered games to have come out over the years, with a fanbase that has become as loyal to it as any other entry in the series. Now PS5 owners will be getting their own version of the game, all gussied up for the console with all of the content ever released for it in one title. We have the latest trailer for it below as the game will drop on November 15th in North America.
