NIS America launched a new character 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 main protagonist of the series, Adol Christin, who is known across the lands a skilled adventurer with red hair. Adol is the ultimate “Silent Protagonist”, having never spoken, yet, the narrative of the series is still considered to be one of the best told.

In Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Adol’s ship is destroyed by a giant creature and the adventurer ends up washing ashore on Seiren Island. He begins to have dreams where he can see through the eyes a woman named Dana. Throughout the game it becomes more clear what these dreams mean and also the mysteries of the island.

Additionally, players who purchase the game early will have access to a few free DLC, Adol’s Silver Armor, Adol’s Adventurer Clothes, and Adol’s Survival Kit: Blade Ring II (x1), Empty Bottle (x1), and Iron Ore (x10).

In case you missed it, NISA released a character trailer for Dana as well as the rest of the party. Also, DualShockers had the opportunity to speak with Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo about the Ys series and how Falcom approaches development on the titles.
