Beijing-based Linekong Entertainment Technology to release new version of RPG

Nihon Falcom announced on Wednesday that the Beijing-based company Linekong Entertainment Technology Co., Ltd. will release its Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA action role-playing game as an app for iOS and Android smartphones worldwide.

NIS America describes the story for the previous release:

Ys returns with a brand new adventure for the first time in 8 years! Adol awakens shipwrecked and stranded on a cursed island. There, he and the other shipwrecked passengers he rescues form a village to challenge fearsome beasts and mysterious ruins on the isolated island. Amidst this, Adol begins to dream of a mysterious blue-haired maiden living in an unknown world. Join Adol as he unravels the riddle of the cursed isle and the blue-haired maiden Dana in Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana!

Nihon Falcom released the game for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan in May 2017, and NIS America released the game for PS4 and PS Vita in North America and Europe in September 2017. NIS America released the game on PC in April 2018 after a delay from its previous January 2018 release date. The company then released the Nintendo Switch version of the game in North America and Europe last June. The game has sold more than 500,000 copies worldwide as of October.
