Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana – Deluxe Edition is a rerelease of the 2017 PlayStation 4 game (which in turn was a port of the PlayStation Vita title), made available for PlayStation 5. It comes with all the previously released DLC, and in the sort of package we have come to expect from NIS, much like the ones for the Legend of Heroes titles.

As usual, the case comes with two discs, the game itself and a soundtrack CD with five tracks on it.

A small artbook is also included, the Mini Art Collection. Inside are artworks of the game’s characters, settings, items and weapons.

The cover is reversible, and although both feature the same artwork, the reversed cover is a bit cleaner, without the age rating and runes in the background. The back however is totally different, with a full artwork instead of screenshots and other information.

In short, this is your typical NIS Europe release in terms of presentation and contents, but as always they make for nice physical versions with some extras for the price of a regular game.
