Ys VIII, the latest game in the long-running action RPG series from Nihon Falcom, is coming to the Switch this summer, announced in today's Nintendo Direct.

The game released on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 in September of last year. The game had an infamous translation, prompting the head of Nippon Ichi Software America to apologize and promise to begin work on a retranslation of the game. The retranslation was scheduled for release in December, but has been delayed.

Ys is an action RPG series that has long been held as one of the strongest in the genre. Ys VIII also won our award for Best RPG Action Combat System of 2017 and you can read our review of the PlayStation 4 version here.
