Haven't heard anything. Wonder if they're targeting the PS4 version instead.

Ys VIII confirmed for North America and Europe, coming this fall:

Distributed to PS4 and Vita in both physical and digital versions. PC too, but digital only for that platform.

One big difference this time; NIS America is handling the localization/publishing, not XSEED. (Although apparently XSEED isn't happy about that: https://twitter.com/Hatsuu/status/832797511479734273 )

Glad it's coming. Will get on Vita!

Isn't XSEED bigger than NIS?

Nihon Falcom calls the shots. Apparently they think NIS will do a better job localizing and publishing Ys VIII than XSEED will. Or maybe NIS significantly undercut XSEED on the bid. Who knows?

This sound like it's the case.

Pretty sure XSEED is a small company. I've communicated with some of their employees online and got that impression. Plus, with some of the earlier Ys games they literally used fan translations as opposed to creating their own.

"NIS America also revealed the exact release dates for the game, which will be September 12th for North America and September 15th for Europe. It is getting released worldwide for PC, PS4 and Vita."

This game was originally developed for Vita, so that's the version I'll get. I'm glad it's getting a PS4 and PC release too. The more the merrier. Preorders are up on Amazon.
