Today Nihon Falcom announced that a demo of the PS4 version of its action JRPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will be released on the Japanese PlayStation Store.

The demo of the fast-action game will launch on March 24th, and will come with the ability of carrying over saves to the retail version, that will launch in Japan on May 25th.

It will include the Coral Forest level, and will let players taste the “Inferno” difficulty, which was added added to the PS4 version.
