NISA Reveals Silver Armor Pre-Order DLC For Ys VIII; Addresses Localization Issues in Screenshots

July 3, 2017

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana received a special announcement during a gameplay panel at Anime Expo 2017, hosted by NISA, which DualShockers attended.

The DLC announced is the special armor worn by Adol in the first Ys title named “Silver Armor”. This DLC will be available for free for those you pre-order the game. More information about the DLC will be coming soon from NISA

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is an action RPG where players join an adventurer named Adol as he journeys around and breaks many ships in the process (a joke for Ys fans). Even though this is the 8th entry, each adventure is different, which makes it new comer friendly.


Additionally, when addressing localized boss names found in screenshots and an early build of the English demo, NISA stated that those are not final and have been changed since the time those images were released.

The publisher details the premise:

Ys returns with a brand new adventure for the first time in 8 years! Adol awakens shipwrecked and stranded on a cursed island. There, he and the other shipwrecked passengers he rescues form a village to challenge fearsome beasts and mysterious ruins on the isolated island. Amidst this, Adol begins to dream of a mysterious blue-haired maiden living in an unknown world. Join Adol as he unravels the riddle of the cursed isle and the blue-haired maiden Dana in Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana!
