Falcom has released new Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA information and screenshots detailing characters Reya and Miralda, two new castaways joining the Drifting Village on the Isle of Seiren, and Adol and Dana’s “Extra Skill” abilities.
Get the information below.
Reya (voiced by Hidemi Anzai)
11 years old. A mischivous boy with a slightly precocious manner of speaking, who’s heir to the wealthy Dior family of Greek. Sticking close to his father, he crossed the waters to Xandria, but decided upon an earlier return to Eresia, and was thus aboard the Lombardy passenger liner alone. Immediately after the ship sank, he clung for dear life onto the livestock of Pikkards in the ship’s hold before arriving on the Isle of Seiren. In the Drifting Village, he is forced by Dogi as in charge of tending to the crops and taking care of the Pikkards.
Miralda (voiced by Karina Tanaka)
“Cooking, cleaning, laundry—if it’s housework, you can leave it to me, the housewife.”
32 years old. A bright and positive housewife from the Greek area who helps her husband run his restaurant. She is a young-looking, beautiful woman, but contrary to her appearance, she has six children waiting for her return. She excels in all household matters, and after drifting ashore began her survival life alone with her favorite kitchen knife in hand. After meeting her, she uses her cooking ability, creativity, and precious ingredients to satisfy the stomachs of the castways living in the Drifting Village.
■ Extra Skills
During battle, landing standard attacks will accumulate your “Extra Gauge,” which allows players to trigger the “Extra Skill” possessed by each character. These are fierce, hidden abilities—attacks of superior intensity and wider range—but since your Extra Gauge is reduced to zero after use, deciding when to use it is an important factor.
Adol’s Exclusive Extra Skill: “Excalibur”
Adol’s strongest skill that calls for all of his power, in which his sword is cloaked with an aura several times its length, and then used to assault the enemy with a raging attack.
Dana’s Exclusive Extra Skill: “Gleaming Ice Sword Dance”
A rotation attack where Dana uses her half-moon sword to annihilate the surrounding enemies. From there, huge icicles formed in mid-air and aimed at surrounding enemies above-ground, continously shoot forward to deal great damage.
