Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Day One Edition Includes a Soundtrack and Art Book

Those that get Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana early on will be treated to some bonus goodies. The Day One Edition will feature a select soundtrack (featuring five tracks), and a 32-page art book. In addition to this, NIS America has released a new trailer for Nihon Falcom’s upcoming PlayStation 4 and Vita RPG. While the last trailer focused on the titular character, this one focuses on the expanded cast. In total, it shows off four of the explorers that players will experience during their sea expedition.

Check out the trailer below:

The four characters shown off in the trailer are Laxia, Sahad, Hummel, and Ricotta (not to be confused with the cheese). Here are the latter two characters’ bios from the official website (visit the site to see the rest):


An enigmatic “Transporter” who goes rogue on the Isle of Seiren.

He takes pride in his work and his serious personality causes him to fulfill any duty that is requested of him. He is also a stickler for cleanliness. He drifted ashore along with a package that he was in the midst of transporting, but keeps mum about both the package and the details of his transportation request.

He possesses a new type of weapon called a “gun” that is described as a small-scale cannon.


A girl who was living on the Isle of Seiren before Adol and the others found themselves there.

Ricotta is innocent to a fault and well-versed in both the island’s geography and the Ancient Species. She gleaned all of her other knowledge and vocabulary from documents and books that drifted to the island shore, so her language skills are sometimes lacking.

She’s been waiting a long time for her father to return from his exploration of the island…

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is set to release September 12, 2017 in North America for PlayStation 4 and Vita. A European release follows on September 15.
