While everyone is waiting for Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana to be released to the PlayStation 4 this year in May, NIS America has announced at the press event tonight that they will be releasing the game in English with dual language voices- both English and Japanese- as well as a French language version.
While the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita versions are what we’ve seen in Japan, they are also releasing it to Steam. At the press release, it was stated that they have committed to releasing games to Steam after the success of Disgaea 2 on the platform.
