3Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA
The Ys series has been entertaining JRPG fans for years, and the latest to be released in the west, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA, is one of the best.
Like all Ys games, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA casts you as Adol Christin, a red-haired adventurer that always seems to find himself in trouble. This time he finds himself shipwrecked on a cursed island, and must search for survivors while also uncovering its secrets.
Being an action RPG, combat is fast paced. There are many skills for you to acquire, and you’re rewarded for parrying or dodging attacks with skill. You’re not just stuck with playing as Adol, either; there are other characters you can take control, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
It may not look all that fancy, but if you love JRPGs and own a PS4, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA is something you should definitely at least try.
