Take a glimpse into the mysterious city of Balduq with this Ys IX: Monstrum Nox demo. Choose between one of two key locations to explore, and experiment with the brand-new Gifts and Monstrums before your full adventure begins.
Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is the latest entry in the long-running series developed by Falcom. The game builds upon many of the features seen in Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, introducing new mechanics as well that will make the adventure as enjoyable as ever.
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 Monstrum 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.
Ys IX: Monstrum Nox launches on PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe on February 2nd. The game will launch on PC and Nintendo Switch during Summer 2021.
