In addition to improved looks and frame rates that come with the PS4 version of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, it introduces two new characters named Io and Lastel. Falcom shares new screenshots and details.
Io (CV: Aoi Yuki)
An innocent girl with light pink hair who shows up in front of Dana. She has a neat and clean appearance but imprudently speaks with an insolent tone at times and gets Dana into trouble. After Dana shows some interest in an underground cathedral located in the royal capital of Etania, she tags along to investigate, but…
Io is also the new character we saw on the cover art for Ys VIII last month. Not much else is known about her at this moment.
Lastel (CV: Yuki Nagaku)
An honest and diligent young guard of the royal capital of Etania. He always looked up to his father, leader of the royal guards Doran, since he was a child, and trained in hopes of becoming a guard just like him one day. After growing older, he joined the royal guards with dreams of being Dana’s guard, but things take an unexpected turn.
Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana releases in Japan on May 25 for PlayStation 4. The game is headed Westward for PS4 and PS Vita in Fall 2017.
