Ys returns with a brand new adventure for the first time in 8 years! Adol awakens shipwrecked and stranded on a cursed island. There, he and the other shipwrecked passengers he rescues form a village to challenge fearsome beasts and mysterious ruins on the isolated island. Amidst this, Adol begins to dream of a mysterious blue-haired maiden living in an unknown world. Join Adol as he unravels the riddle of the cursed isle and the blue-haired maiden Dana in Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA!

The Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA demo begins with Adol and his trusty companions, Laxia and Sahad, in a remote part of the Isle of Seiren. Players will learn how to swap characters in order to take advantage of enemy weaknesses, battle against two bosses using techniques as “Flash Guard” and “Flash Dodge,” and even try out cooking skills to craft usable items. With five difficulties to choose from (Easy, Normal, Hard, Nightmare, and Inferno), players will be able to find the perfect challenge for this upcoming full release of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA!
