NIS America has shared a brand new story trailer for the upcoming Ys IX: Monstrum Nox.
The video presents another quick look at the game's shadowy world, teasing some of the mysteries you'll need to unravel to escape the city of Balduq. If you need a quick refresher, check out this official game description:
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.
It's set to launch on Switch in summer 2021, slightly after its February 2021 release date on PS4. Pre-orders for the Pact Edition, which comes with the game, art book, soundtrack and more, are already live on Amazon:
