Ys VIII has a female protagonist


Adol is sharing the spotlight

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana features a female lead alongside familiar hero Adol Christin.

Her name is Dana, if you didn't already gather that from the title, and appears in Adol's dreams as a mysterious blue-haired woman. She's apparently both faster and more powerful than the ruddy swordsman, whose adventure she will impact in some way. And he, in turn, will do the same for her, though it's how that happens, other than of some psychic connection.

Ys VIII is planned for a summer release in Japan for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. A localization hasn't been announced as of yet , but XSEED Games is probably interested, you know, considering all of Falcom games the team has localized in recent years.
