NIS America has revealed that Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will be arriving on Switch on 26th June in North America, and 29th June in Europe.

The JRPG series is returning with a brand new adventure for the first time in 8 years. Adol awakens shipwrecked and stranded on a cursed island where he, and the other shipwrecked passengers, must challenge fearsome beasts and mysterious ruins. Amidst this, Adol begins to dream of a mysterious blue-haired maiden living in a unknown world, with players left to unravel the mysteries of the isolated isle and the blue-haired maiden Dana.

The game is set to feature multiple protagonists; deep battle action including attacks, guarding, evasion, and 'EXTRA' skills; quests; and even some recreational fishing to pass the time.
