In yet another localization update for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA, NIS America has revealed that it’s almost done re-recording dialogue after eight straight days of work in an ongoing effort to address complaints. The company is aiming to have an early build ready for Falcom by early-mid December.

In a blog post, the company wrote:

We were able to get all the actors back and, of the main characters, we only have Laxia, Dana, and Sahad left to finish their voice recording. The talent have been eager and excited about this whole process and have been putting in some amazing performances. I hope that you’re all looking forward to hearing the new script in-game!

After first checking the audio files internally, we will deliver them to Falcom for implementation and should have a build ready by early to mid-December. Once we have that, we can start sharing some screenshots and videos!

Since voice re-recording will be wrapping up, what’s next? Well, as many of you correctly surmised, our progress so far has been focused on the voiced lines in the game. Once we finish up recording, we will move into all the unvoiced sections of the game.

NIS promised another update next week so stay tuned.
