New trailer released for Ys IX: Monstrum Nox

Fight back against the Monstrum curse

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox doesn't come to Switch until sometime in Summer 2021, but a new trailer has been released today. We can at least enjoy that while we count down the days until launch. Give that a watch above, and then read a recap on the game below.

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.
