Game Completion 2018 #49 – Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

  • Game: Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana
  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Nihon Funcom
  • Publisher: NIS America

Ys VIII is a perfectly competent, action-focused JRPG, but never anything more. It features a number of elements and systems similar to those I enjoyed in the likes of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Ni No Kuni 2, but does none of those things half as well.
