Well now that Tokyo Xanadu is done and dusted, we're finally starting to hear about this again. And starting with a JP release window that'll likely slide into Fall or 2017 no less.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I guess I should try out Ys Seven, which I bought 3 years ago?

dont think so. That solidly-built guy has green hair and has been seen wielding an axe in other media.

Awesome. Looking forward to hearing more details, it's been a while since I've played a new YS game.

Important details:
- Adol Shipwrecks
- Cursed Island
- Platforming

Shocking right? Also:
- Town Building

Not as shocking as that one time he got on a boat and it didn't crash. I wonder if there is Adol insurance for boats in the world of Ys.

Seriously. It'll be an important and/or shocking detail if Adol did not get stranded on some cursed island. The guy must be addicted to getting nursed back to health by cute girls, or something.

...then leaving them to go high-seas adventuring again with his bro Dogi.

Bros before random girls who may or may not be the key to the ancient mystery that surrounds the island.

What if Ys VIII is like FFVIII and consists of 90% throwing Australian Shepherds at people?

According to this Falcom document, it's slated for a summer 2016 release in Japan for PS4 and Vita.  There's no word yet on a western localization.
