Alan Costa from NIS America has posted details regarding the revision project for Ys VIII on their website’s blog today, and these updates will continue on a weekly basis.
Per their statement, they wish to review the translation with a new translator, re-edit the script (voiced and unvoiced) with a new editor, re-record the voice work, and debug the new build.
Regarding the situation, though, and what they wish to do, they have also learned that it will push back the project further than they expected- to sometime next year.
I don’t want to throw out a hard date then have to backtrack again, but, barring any unforeseen issues, we are currently looking to get this out early next year.
On that note, as we want this version to be the definitive release of the title, we will be holding the PC version back to coincide this this release as well.
