Falcom announced a brand-new title in the Ys series with Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, and it is being developed for PlayStation 4 and a 2019 release window in Japan.
The game is set in Barduke, located in the northeastern part of Esteria in the Gllia Erdlingen region in a giant city called the “Prison City,” where we’ll encounter the likes of the “Monstrum,” individuals who possess super powers, with whom you’ll uncover mysteries hidden in the prison in the start of a new adventure.
The game comes with everything that the Ys series is known for, from intense fights against giant bosses, to the various skill attacks, free dashes, and jumps we’ve seen in its speedy action.
There will also be new elements involving Ys IX’s setting including the “Supernatural Action” of the Monstrum that can be used while exploring the field, the “Guild Management” feature in the Prison City,” and more.
Who are the “Monstrum” that appeared in the city? What secrets are lurking within the Prison City? And what about the red haired adventurer Adol Cristin?
Here’s a look at its first screenshots:
