Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Localization Patch and PC version delayed to Early 2018
Last month, NIS America announced that Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana would receive a patch to address localization issues by late November. Today, the niche publisher has followed up on that comment in a blog post on their official website, announcing that the edits will take a little longer than expected. Both the patch as well as the PC version of the game are now expected to release in early 2018.
Here is a snippet regarding the patch and PC version delay:
This is going to come as no surprise to many of you, but after beginning this revision, we have realized that due to the scope of this undertaking, we will unfortunately not be able to release by the end of this month as we had originally intended.
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.
While this does constitute a further delay of the PC version, please rest assured that this time will be used to further optimize the game.
