Ys VIII has dual protagonists

Dana joins the seasoned adventurer Adol.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will have two protagonists, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals.

Joining Adol as a protagonist is the mysterious blue-haired girl we’ve previously seen in the game’s key visual, whose name is now revealed as Dana. She appears in Adol’s dreams, and through those dreams, you’ll be able to experience Dana’s way of life. Her power and speed exceeds even that of the veteran hero Adol.

Dana’s story, which Adol will see in his dreams, will affect his very adventure itself. Also, Dana seems to recognize Adol, and Adol’s actions will considerably affect Dana’s story.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan this summer.
