Ys VIII's new trailer is filled with high-speed goodness


Did Adol stock up on espresso coffee?

Is it me or does Falcom's latest Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana trailer feel like Adol and his comrades are loaded on a ton of caffeine? Not that it's a bad thing since the gang's movements are making the game look really fun.

Since this is my first time witnessing the series' party system and counter maneuvers, I'm definitely excited to see how how these features play out when I play Ys VIII-- unless I get to try out Ys Celceta and Seven before then. Also, I find it neat how the creature featured in the beginning of the trailer has a similar fighting style to Gyalva from Ys: The Oath in Felghana.

Ys VIII hits Japan on July 21 for the Vita, with the PS4 version launching next year. Based on what Falcom has shown us so far, I'm looking forward to seeing how the game will look in its home console counterpart.

Seeing that Falcom Sound Team jdk did an amazing job with the fast-paced violin music shown in the trailer, Ys VIII's soundtrack is shaping up to be a great hit. Then again, Falcom's titles tend to have a solid tunes so this is something that we can always look forward to.

To those who enjoy the Ys series, what did you all think of Ys VIII's most recent trailer?
