EDIT:

More information on the game has come out from Dengeki, 4gamer.net, and gamer.

The last Ys title, Memories of Celceta, was released in Japan in 2012 for the PlayStation Vita. Four years later, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is the long-awaited new title for the Ys series.

The game takes place in the Goethe Sea, located in southern Greek (the Ys equivalent of our Greece), on the Seiren Island, suspended in the sea’s waters. Adol’s new adventure begins as he travels there to learn about the legends buried underneath those waters.

The game will feature a myriad of skills, as well as free-dash and free jump actions. On top of it, Flash Move and Flash Guard will also be making a return. As expected, this game will carry the high-speed action that the Ys series is known for having.

The popular automapping system from Ys Celceta will also be making a return as cartography will once again play a role in the new title. You will seek out drifting villages in the sea and take part in their expansion and development. There will also be campaign battles where you must defend the villages from attacks as well. This new system will bring a new, exciting component to the series.

    You will seek out drifting villages in the sea and take part in their expansion and development. There will also be campaign battles where you must defend the villages from attacks as well.

    These sound like filler content systems that don’t belong in an Ys game.

    Adol and the girl in the banner at the top don’t look like they’re drawn by Celceta’s character designer. So that would be a massive improvement already if they got a new artist for this game.

    On a site-related note, this has bothered me for a while, but now it’s gotten even worse. ReCaptcha is literally under the Submit Comment button in every browser I’ve tried. It’s nearly impossible to use.
