This afternoon NIS America has unveiled their release date for YS VIII. PC gamers can get their hands on this JRPG through Steam on January 30th. Alongside the PC release NIS America will be releasing an update that will improve the localization quality of YS VIII on the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita.

We are pleased to announce that the PC release of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA will have a target global release date of January 30, 2018. Included in the PC release are game optimizations and the localization revisions originally announced in October. The localization revisions include improvements to the game’s script, adjustments to graphical text and re-recorded audio and will be implemented across PC, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita versions simultaneously.


It’s good to see NIS America is working diligently to improve their localization quality and give the game the translation it deserves. You can take a look at some examples of the improved localization here:
