NISA introduced final week that, after quite a few delays, the PC model of Ys VIII would lastly launch on April 16. Now that the date is right here, followers will not be proud of the standard of the port.
Followers buying the sport have reported quite a few bugs and typos launched into the PC model, even after NISA defined that the PC model would characteristic an entire retranslation that was initially carried out due to numerous complaints over the original translation. NISA rolled out the brand new translation on PlayStation four and Vita earlier this yr.
Steam reviews for the game, that are presently sitting at 66% destructive, additionally point out barebones graphical choices. The sport is seemingly locked at 4K inside decision, which implies it performs as if it is pushing 4K graphics whether or not you might be working the sport at 4K, 8K, or 1080p, although this isn’t defined within the recreation’s system necessities. Different opinions level out that the sport is locked to Eight-way motion on a gamepad.
The standard of the port is bothersome to a number of followers, because it was initially scheduled for launch in September of final yr. It was pushed to January, then pushed once more to April. Now we have contacted NISA for remark however haven’t acquired any on the time of publishing.
Ys VIII continues to be symbolic of all of NISA’s unhealthy luck. I can solely hope the Swap model works higher, however after almost each initiative for the sport has tripped over itself, it is exhausting to be optimistic.
