    When Adol Christin boards the sea liner Lombardia for what he expects to be an easy voyage across the Gaete Sea, he has no idea his journey will end in catastrophe. Shipwrecked on the mysterious Seiren Island along with a handful of other Lombardia survivors, he must face the ancient curse that had haunted Seiren for millennia and find a way to defeat it.

    Adol’s search for escape brings his party to the ruins of the ancient civilization of Eternia. Among the ruins, Adol discovers a survivor, Dana, who had managed to preserve herself in a magical cocoon through her gift of Essence. But when she awakens and gradually regains her memories, Adol and his friends learn the horrible truth. Humanity is destined for destruction by the same forces that destroyed Eternia millennia ago. Even Dana’s gift can do little to avert this fate.

    Adol and Dana must join forces and throw all their powers into the fight. But will this be enough to defy the ancient gods, and the natural order of the world?

    Lastly, the Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana game is available now for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PS Vita, and PC.
