on May 27, 2016 4:36 AM

Today Nihon Falcom released a batch of new screenshots of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, that will release in Japan for PS Vita on July 21st and on PS4 next year.

The screenshots introduce the young Reyia, the heir of a rich family who drifted ashore on Seiren Island after the shipwreck of the Lombardy. He’s definitely not an obedient boy, and tries to speak like an adult. He takes care of the crops at the Drifting Village.

We also meet Miralda, who doesn’t look like it (at all), but she’s actually 32 years old. She also has six children and an husband waiting for her at home. She’s a skilled cook and housewife, and she takes care of the food at the Drifting Village.

Last but not least, we get the introduction of two extra skills, Adol’s “Excelcalibur” and Dana’s “Blade of Glistening Ice.” They can be used when the Extra gauge is full, but they deplete it completely. It recharges by attacking normally.
