The PC port of Falcom’s action JRPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA has been much delayed. Originally it was meant to come at around the same time as the console release, but various issues that have plagued the game (an infamously poor localisation, for a start) has meant that the publisher, NISA, has taken it back to the drawing board.

Now, a much better version of the game will land on January 30. The PlayStation versions of the game will also be updated to this superior version. From the press release:

Included in the PC release are game optimizations and the localization revisions originally announced in October. The localization revisions include improvements to the game’s script, adjustments to graphical text and re-recorded audio and will be implemented across PC, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita versions simultaneously.

For one week only, PC users will be able to download the following for free until Feb 6, 10:00am PST:

  • Adol’s Adventure Essentials DLC – Includes Adol’s Silver Armor, Adol’s Adventurer Clothes, and Adol’s Survival Kit
  • Digital Mini Art Book – Includes a 32-page full-color art book
  • Digital Soundtrack Sampler – Includes 5 tracks
  • Laxia’s “Eternian Scholar” Costume
NISA deserves a lot of respect to be willing to go this far to repair a critical flaw that was damaging the game for fans, and then further apologise for it by providing a bunch of digital goodies for free. Hopefully the company is rewarded for this.
