Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included an article on Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, that introduced new characters and more.
We get to meet Dogi and Captain Barbaros respectively Adol’s long lost adventuring companion and a seaman who lost his ship. Accompanying Barbaros there’s also the parrot Paro.
We also see the ability to develop a village, where it’ll be possible to farm and give housing to several NPCs.
Check the screenshots out below, but keep in mind that they’re magazine scans, so quality isn’t as high as direct feed screenies.
