"What happened to Ys 8?"

Decided to wait until NISA releases the free patch for the localization.

It being NISA and the patch coming so quickly does not inspire a whole lot of confidence that they are going to fix much except the most obvious and easily-memed failures, but hey, I got time to wait.

Still need to beat 7 'cause I actually had to put that on hold because I fired up Origin again intending to just to quickly check something out and then got sucked into another full playthrough.

Having ordered 8 like a year ago, I got the whole thing for like half its current price (and including all the Day 1 edition stuff like the artbook and the soundtrack samplers for free) because there was some point during that time period where I guess someone at NISA panicked at the pre-release sales and went overboard with the discounting, so no particular hurry to play it ASAP to justify to myself getting it on release day the way some people do.

edit: Since I am posting here anyway, might as well mention that Cuphead's default difficulty is not as tough as its reputation would have people believe. In that sense, it really is like... some game franchise that people think of as being way harder than it actually is.
