Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana PS5 Version Updated to Fix Vanished Character Event Backgrounds & Add Missing Water Graphical Effect

Publisher NIS America has announced that a new patch is available for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana’s native PlayStation 5 version, remedying two relatively minor issues.

The first fixed problem concerns how character events would display black backgrounds when they were intended to be blurry, like in every other release. And the second fix regards an unspecified graphical water oddity.
