Dedicated Ys fan account, Digital Emelas, has reported that the upcoming PlayStation 5 limited and retail editions of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will include 2 songs never before released in the West. These tracks comprise the special ‘Christmas of Dana’ album, the festive versions of ‘Iclucian Dance’ and ‘Lacrimosa of Dana’. The number of in-game tracks will be the same, so these songs will likely be included in a sampler disc of sorts.
You can view the tweet from Digital Emelas announcing the Western arrival of these Christmas arrangements below:
