The Summer is already looking relatively busy for Switch gamers, and now yet another meaty game is joining the fray; NIS America has confirmed that Ys IX: Monstrum Nox arrives on 6th July in North America, 9th July in Europe and 16th July in Oceania.

This latest entry in the series see Adol start out as a fugitive, and this time around the core setting is the rather foreboding city of Balduq. There's the series' usual dose of action and enjoyable boss fights, and as the game has been out on PS4 for a little while you can browse the review over on Push Square for a sense of what to expect.

As for the Switch release, there's a neat new trailer to celebrate the release date announcement.
