Falcom recently revealed that Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will have two protagonists with Adol and Dana, the mysterious blue-haired girl. The latest update on the official website shares more details.
Weapon: Crescent Moon Blades
Attack Attribute: Slash
A mysterious blue-haired girl who appears in Adol’s dreams. While she may be a pretty girl, she’s full of imagination and often goes for bold actions, which can be surprising to the people around her.
Dana is from a civilization that is exceptionally advanced, which you wouldn’t see in the Eresia continent. Adol will get to experience her life as if it were his own through his dreams.
Slash Attack Attribute:
In battle, Dana uses her Crescent Moon Blades while rotating her body to pull off speedy attacks one after the other. In addition to her being light and speedy, the slashes that come from her spin are said to have more power than Adol’s attacks.
The mysterious girl Dana who appears in Adol’s dreams will be available as the other protagonist. The adventurer Adol’s story will take place on Siren Island, where he’s a castaway, and you’ll take control of Dana and advance through her story in Adol’s dreams.
Just who exactly is Dana, and why does she only appear in Adol’s dreams? All their mysteries will gradually be revealed as you advance through both of their stories.
Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will release in Japan in summer 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
