Publisher NIS America has confirmed that the PS5 port of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana features several graphical improvements along with an optional performance mode.
On Sony’s current-gen console, the title benefits from improved texture and shadow detail, as well as increased draw distances. According to NISA, pop-ins have been “eliminated”, and load times are much shorter across the board.
The headliner, however, is that the action RPG will ship with a dedicated 120 frames-per-second mode. This setting will drop the resolution down to 1080p – and you’ll obviously need a TV or monitor that supports it – but it’s definitely a good option.
If you’re not shooting for 120fps, you’ll have to stick with the game’s standard PS5 setting, which is 60fps at 4K. Not bad, not bad.
All of the title’s previously released cosmetic DLC is also included in this port. Here’s a quick list, via NISA’s blog post:
- Adol’s ‘Silver Armor’ costume
- Adol’s ‘Adventurer Clothes’ costume
- Laxia’s ‘Eternian Scholar’ costume
- Tropic Swimwear Dress Set
- For Adol, Laxia, Dana, and Ricotta
- Wild pirate costume set
- For Adol, Lakshya, Sahad, Hummel, Dana and Ricotta
- Hug Hug Accessory Set
- Ancient mask set
- Stylish glass set
- Stylish sunglasses set
The PS5 version of Ys VIII doesn’t have any kind of upgrade path if you already own the game on PS4 — which puts a damper on things — but it looks like it’s the best way to play if you’re new. would be a good way. For the top rated title.
