Ys VIII is getting an update on Switch Release Day


Due to the many technical issues regarding the localization of the review copies, NIS America has confirmed that Ys VIII will have a day-one update on Switch.

The publisher shared details on this front today in a message to those who reviewed the game.

The patch will address technical issues in which text was not displaying correctly. NISA says it was aware of this, and it will be addressed with the patch. Aside from text, “other issues” will be tackled as well.

The day-one update is one of the three patches planned for Ys VIII on Switch.
