Today Nihon Falcom released a new batch of screenshots of its upcoming JRPG Ys IX: Monstrum Nox.
As revealed yesterday on Famitsu, we get to see Adol’s new look. He’s been detained in the prison city of Bardeux as a key witness for the disappearance of the fleet in the Atlas Ocean. While he is trying to escape from jail, he gets involved in a strange case related to the prison city itself and the Monstrum due to meeting a mysterious woman.
We also see his buddy Dogi, which as usual is extremely strong. Despite that, he is able to respond calmly to events beyond human knowledge that would make other people panic.
Lastly, we see a third Monstrum and his power “Crimson Line: Way of the King” in action. It lets you move long distances instantly thanks to a red string that extends from the left hand. Your body becomes like a shadow, so it can pass through walls and rock. You can also pass through enemies while dealing damage.
Ys IX: Monstrum Nox has been announced only for PS4 and will launch in Japan on September 26, 2019. At the moment, no western release has been announced.
