Did you miss out on the Ys VIII hype when it launched on PS4 this past fall? Well, if you’re like me and play mostly on your PC, you’re in luck! The PC edition on Steam is coming out with re-recorded audio (which is also being added to the PS4 and Vita versions). Plus, people who download the game in the first week can download extra DLC, soundtrack, and an art book as well. Hype!
From the announcement:
We are pleased to announce that the PC release of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA will have a target global release date of January 30, 2018.
