Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA Review via Nintendo Insider

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa Of Dana is a title that takes a while to get going, maybe too long, which may be enough to put some people off early and the story is rather sub-par. Those that stick with it will see where the game truly shines.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana (Switch) Review via Just Push Start

Despite some small annoyances, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is a blast on the Switch. The simply, yet fun, combat is a winner whether you’re on the go or playing at home. Add in a thrilling story and it makes for one of the better offerings for the platform. Sure, it could perform a little better and do a better job with direction, but these things are quickly forgotten when you’re defending your settlement or finding new residents.

Review YS VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA (Nintendo Switch) - Pure Nintendo via Pure Nintendo

YS VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana was certainly a great playing experience.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa Of Dana Switch review – role-playing survivor via Metro GameCentral

The storytelling is lacking but otherwise this is one of the most interesting Japanese role-players of recent years, and one that isn't afraid to take inspiration from other genres.

Review: Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA via VGProfessional

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana might not be the most gorgeous game there is, but it's an excellent JRPG adventure that will keep you busy with a hefty amount of playing time.

So far, the Switch version of the game seems to be running very well despite my initial concerns with NISA porting the game. Overall, the story and gameplay in YS VIII have blown me away. I have yet to finish the game, but as it stands this game ranks among my favorite Switch games.

@jonnydarkfang Performance-wise, you aren't going to have to worry about this port. Expect a full review of the Switch port here in a couple weeks!

Recently got introduced to the Ys series when Origins dropped for Xbox. Really excited to pick up this one for my Switch, only fear is that the PC port is supposedly flawed. Hopefully the Switch version is in better shape when it arrives.

@Damycky I saw listings for a physical copy at Amazon and Gamestop. NISA online store has a limited edition going on too.

I'm excited to try it out!
It will be my first Falcom game and I've heard nothing but good things about their games( I'm not going to talk about the NISA drama though).
