Hype. Depending on who localizes, PC and Switch ports likely to come. 

Please not NISA?

THIS. So, so much. They #$*!ed up with Ys VIII far too much.

It's probably gonna be NISA. Falcom seem to be delirious about their work on Ys 8, and want to continue collaborating with them. I think there's a very deliberate business decision behind it that goes deeper than simply the (lacking) quality of their work.
On the flip-side, if it ended up being XSeed, the localization would probably take years.

I'm curious about the intentional omission of Adol in the current promotion material. Though the image below seems to imply multiple playable characters, I'm hoping this approach means they are trying to shake things up this time around, rather than repeating the Ys Seven formula for the fourth time. I especially hope that party based combat is gonna be scrapped. It's about time!

Some more details on the game

Most important detail to me is that party battles, unfortunately, return. This has been the worst aspect of the last three major Ys games, why do they insist on keeping it in there? :(
