Making the jump from PS Vita and PlayStation 4, YS VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will be a summer adventure to remember on the Nintendo Switch.

Playing as the main hero, Adol, you’ll help him on this journey as he awakens on a stranded island. Shipwrecked here, he’s faced with the task of navigating around a supposedly cursed island. Thanks to the assistance of other stranded passengers, a village is soon created; yet, despite the growth of a community, the fear of beasts lingering nearby poses a constant threat that’s impossible to shake for Adol and his people. In addition to all of this, he begins to dream of a mysterious woman on the even more mysterious island.

While the title stands as the eight addition to the series, NIS America recommends that this is a perfect place to jump in with YS. Even better, the Nintendo Switch version will include all the DLC from its previous release on PS4.


YS VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana doesn’t have a solid release date at this time, but you can look forward to the game getting some bonuses: a reversible cover and character cards! Keep an eye on the company’s Twitter page if you have a favorite character you want featured in these bonus goods.

If you’re itching to get your hands on some YS VIII merch, head over to NIS America’s dedicated sales page for the game. It includes a limited edition version of the game, a t-shirt, and more!
