Following on from its recent apology regarding the localisation for YS VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, the game’s developer NIS America has said that the PC version of the game is now on track to be released in mid-December. The PC version received a delay in order to improve the quality of the gameplay last month.
In a post on its Steam community page, the developer has expanded on the reasons for the delay, and explained how it’s working to fix these issues. The PC port of the game has been plagued with a number of bugs and graphical issues, and the developers have enlisted the help of well-known modder, Peter 'Durante' Thoman, to make sure its performance and features are sorted. Durante gained fame for his excellent Dark Souls DSfix for PC, which not only improved the game’s visuals but doubled the frame rate too, resulting in a far better experience.
In addition to these improvements to the game, the developer has said that the PC version will feature improved game text for Japanese, English, and French and that, ‘this requires a significant amount of time, due to the size of the game and our commitment to localizing the text to both English and French.’ The PS4 and PS Vita versions of the game will be receiving a localisation patch soon.
In closing, NIS America said that, 'After assessing all of these factors, we concluded that approximately two more months of development time is needed to reach the level of quality we and the fans want.’
YS VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is out now on PS4 and PS Vita. The PC version of the game has been moved until mid-December.
