More than a month has passed since the release of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA for PS4 and PS Vita in the Americas and Europe, but where is the PC version?
On October 10th NIS America released an update on the progress of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA for the PC. In the news update they stated that the game’s release will be delayed approximately another 2 months. Which puts it somewhere around mid-December.
