All Copies Of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana On Switch Will Include Adol’s Silver Armor

Once a pre-order exclusive, Adol’s Silver Armor available to all Ys VIII owners on Switch – no download required.

Publisher NIS America today announced that all copies of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will include Adol’s iconic Silver Armor costume already on the game card. The Silver Armor was previously offered as a downloadable pre-order DLC for the previously-released versions of the game.

Adol’s Silver Armor is almost as iconic as the swordsman’s fiery red hair. Its origins can be traced back developer Falcom’s 1987 release, Ys I: Ancient Ys Vanished. In that game, the armor had the ability to shield its wearer with holy magic. Sadly, in Ys VIII  the armor is strictly cosmetic, offering no added stat bonuses to the player. Ah well, at least it looks more awesome than ever this time around. And if looks could kill, Adol would surely be unstoppable in this shiny set of gear.

So, will you be adding Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana to your Switch library when it releases on June 28, 2018 in North America and June 29 in Europe? As always, we love to hear what you think. Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
