Ys IX: Monstrum Nox announced for PS4

Due out in 2019 in Japan.



Falcom has announced Ys IX: Monstrum Nox for PlayStation 4. It will launch in 2019 in Japan.

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox takes place in Baldeux, which is northeast of Esterior in the Gllia Eldlingen region. Set in a huge city known as “Prison City,” a new adventure surrounding the mysteries hidden in the city will unfold alongside people called “Monstrum” who possess supernatural abilities.

Ys series trademarks such as speedy action (diverse skill attacks, free dashes, and jumps) and battles against giant bosses will return alongside numerous new elements connected to Ys IX‘s setting, including the use of “Supernatural Actions” of Monstrum to freely explore all areas of the field, “Guild Operations” in Prison City, and more.

Here is the official story and prologue:
Who are the “Monstrum” that have appeared in the city? What is the secret behind “Prison City?” And what of that redheaded adventurer Adol Christin?

I became someone other than myself. Have you ever that kind of dream?

I think about myself in that dream. Is this me, or is this not me?

Are dreams reality, or are reality dreams? I’ve reached an awfully simple answer.

“Whichever is fine.”

Which is true—or which is not true. Both are reality.

– An excerpt from “Baldeux’s Cell”

It certainly looks darker than previous entries.

Is it like the age of Neir in Neir Replicant?

Ys IX features Adol at his oldest age yet

The latest issues of Weekly Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation offer a few new details on the recently announced Ys IX: Monstrum Nox for PlayStation 4 via interviews with Falcom president and CEO Toshihiro Kondo.

Get the notable tidbits below.
  • The concept of the game is the subtitle “Monstrum Nox” (Monsters’ Night) itself.
  • The game’s setting, Baldeux, is a three-dimensional town with different elevations. Its outskirts include grasslands, forests, and ruins.
  • Set in an era after Ys Seven, Adol will appear at his oldest age in the series yet. His name as an adventurer is becoming known all over the world.
  • Party battles and simple controls return. Additionally, the game introduces supernatural actions that lean on the supernatural abilities possessed by Monstrum. Wall-running and moving as a shadow are also possible.
  • The new “Guild Operations” system is an expansion of Ys VIII‘s “Drifting Village” system.
  • The hooded woman equipped with artificial arms and legs is a major key to the game’s story.
  • Development is currently 50 percent complete.

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is due out for PlayStation 4 in 2019 in Japan.

Yeah and at different angles. I hate it when they do shit like this. It makes me skip over the visual because my eyes are drawn to gameplay, not random-ass shit.

Holy crap, did he finally hit 20 years old?
