NIS America and Nihon Falcom have announced that Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA will release on Nintendo Switch.

When his ship sinks, the sea carries adventurer Adol to a deserted island that is inhabited by vicious creatures that have evolved in many different ways. In order to survive, he must gather the survivors and build a base which will continue to grow as his adventure progresses.

Adol and the mysterious Dana, who appears in his dreams, are two souls separated by time and space but, together, will change the course of history.

With marauding monsters to fend off, high-speed battles will require you to alternate between characters to use slash, strike and pierce attack types to take advantage of your enemy’s weakness – to then unleash your special moves when the moment is right.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA will release on Nintendo Switch worldwide in summer 2018.
