The red-haired badass is back!
Falcom has announced Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana's release date during a general meeting of its stock holders yesterday. The game was previously announced for release on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
Our stalwart adventurer will now venture into the Sirens Island, an archipelago on the southern part of Greek, in the Goethe Sea. The game will feature a ton of new content such as; you can now freely dash, a "Drifting Village" base where you can gather castaways that will in turn develop it, “Counter-Attack Battles” where you can defend the village from enemies (I smell Romn...), HUGE-enemies... do I need to say more?, a Jump function for those who miss the excitement of it, and a lot more!
If you're wondering where he has been, and where will he go now, here's a mark-up based on the official map of Ys:
