on May 19, 2016 1:28 AM

Today Nihon Falcom released a batch of screenshots of it’s upcoming JRPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, releasing for PS Vita in Japan on July 21st and in 2017 for PS4.

We meet the giant bird Hashibiroko, that has been protected by Ricotta since when it was a newborn and recognizes her as his mother. Its favorite food is fish.

Speaking of fish, we also get an introduction to fishing, that will be performed via a dedicated minigame. Each character has a different fishing attitude and will likely catch different fishes.

It’s also possible to fish hostile enemies by accident, and to offer the fruit of our labor to Hashibiroko, that will be quite grateful.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
