Ys 9 Monstrum Nox

Falcom’s Ys 9: Monstrum Nox continues to receive updates on Steam courtesy of PH3 Games. Patch 1.06 adds several fixes for minor issues while providing remapping for confirm and cancel actions and mouse wheel support for the message log. There’s also proper Borderless mode support on non-primary displays among other features.

But perhaps the biggest new addition is the “Lunatic” draw distance setting. This is intended to be even higher than Ultra and provides additional improvements to the visuals. However, the team warns that higher levels will have a higher impact on performance. No regressions are expected but in case of any, players are advised to return to previous versions by selecting the “version_*” branch in Steam properties.

As such, the “Lunatic” draw distance setting is only for very-high end systems and meant to provide some future proofing for the title. Ys 9: Monstrum Nox is now available for PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch along with an update that allows it to run in 4K resolution on PS5. Check out our review for the game here.
