Today Nihon Falcom updated the official website of its upcoming JRPG Ys IX: Monstrum Nox with more artwork, details, and videos.
We get a brief trailer and the introduction of three new “monstrum” characters.
We get to see Doll, Renegade, and Raging Bull, and we can also enjoy the reveal of their powers.
Doll’s third eye reveals invisible enemies, items, and secret passages, also allowing to see through walls.
Renegade’s Shadow Dive lets him move literally through shadows. You can use it to pass under obstacles or to surprise enemies from behind.
Raging Bull’s Valkyrie Hammer delivers powerful blows that can destroy solid rock. You can use it to force your way through walls or piles or rocks. It can also break the guard of some enemies.
You can see them in the videos and images at the bottom of the post.
You can also take a look at the early purchase bonus in the form of a mini-soundtrack, and at the Limited Collector’s Box costing 9,800 yen plus taxes. It includes a soundtrack CD, Wanted pamphlets, and a novel.
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.
