Switch and PC versions added for western release.



NIS America will release Falcom-developed action RPG Ys IX: Monstrum Nox for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam in North America and Europe in 2021, the publisher announced during the New Game+ Expo live stream. It will support English and Japanese audio options.

Pre-orders for a $99.99 limited edition are available now at the NIS America Online Store (PlayStation 4, Switch). It includes the “Pact Edition” of the game, “Monstrum Memoirs” mini art booklet, “Melodies of the Macabre” one-disc original soundtrack sampler, reverse cover sheet, “Chains and Chansons” one-disc official soundtrack, “Nails in the Coffin” hardcover art book, “The Lost Sword” Ys IX prequel short novel, “The Crimson King” chibi figure, “The Monstrums and Balduq” art card collection, “Balduq’s Most Wanted” key chain set, and a “Monstrum” box.

Ys IX: Monstrm Nox first launched for PlayStation 4 in September 2019 in Japan.


Here is an overview of the game, via NIS America:

About

Renowned adventurer Adol “the Red” Christin and his companion Dogi arrive at Balduq, a city annexed by the Romun Empire, only for Adol to be detained before setting foot inside. While imprisoned, he meets a mysterious woman named Aprilis who turns him into a Monstrum, a being with supernatural Gifts and the power to exorcise monsters. Now, Adol must ally with his fellow Monstrums to fend off the fearsome threats emerging from a shadowy dimension called the Grimwald Nox, as well as unravel the mysteries of the Monstrum curse, and the truth behind the unrest within Balduq.


Key Features
  • Feared Protectors – Play as any of the six notorious Monstrums, each with their own unique Gifts that grant abilities such as scaling sheer walls or detecting hidden objects to protect the city from shadowy creatures.
  • The World Within the Walls – Explore the massive city, accept quests to aid the townsfolk, and enter the Grimwald Nox to vanquish the threats to Balduq.
  • Strength of the Night – Familiar mechanics such as Flash Dodge and Flash Guard allow you to outmaneuver your foes、while new additions such as Gifts and Boost Mode further augment your ability to fight.

Many cheers!

Honestly, for me Falcom is the best developer out there atm. All their games are great.

Don't need fancy graphics and realism to make a fun game.
