NIS America launched a new trailer for the Falcom developed action RPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC on September 12 in North America and September 15 in Europe.

The trailer introduces the mysterious Dana, who is as beautiful as she is imaginative and bold. Dana wields Crescent Moon Blades and while swinging in a rhythmic motion she can pull of swift attacks back to back. Dana originally appeared in Adol’s dreams where he strangely was living her life as if it were his own.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana begins after Adol wakes up from a shipwreck. He ends up in a bit of trouble after a skirmish with the local law enforcement, but is asked to stay and help with a outpour of monsters that the town has had to deal with.

Along with the requests of the town, Adol must figure out his dreams with Dana and why exactly he is having them.

The game features fast RPG action where players must explore out in the world and take on huge monsters and bosses. Additionally, a character’s skill are important in battle because switching the character to reveal an enemy’s weakness is crucial to winning.

In case you missed it, Adol’s legendary Silver Armor will be available for free for those who pre-order the game. Also, DualShockers had the opportunity to speak with Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo about the Ys series and how Falcom approaches development on the titles.
