Nihon Falcom have been admirably consistent with the new instalments they put out in the Ys series, and the recently released Ys 9: Monstrum Nox was another notch on their belt. The game launched to solid reception from critics, while series fans have also had no shortage of praise for the game (it’s combat seems to be especially well regarded). To highlight some of that praise, the game’s publisher has put out an accolades trailer, which you can check out below.
If you’ve been on the fence about whether or not to give the game a go, we’d definitely recommend taking the plunge. Our own impressions of Ys 9 were similarly positive. In our review, we awarded the game a score of 9/10, praising its combat and its cast and characters, and said, “Ys IX: Monstrum Nox brings a wide array of impressive gameplay elements in concert with a wonderful cast of characters to make an exhilarating, thoughtful package that’s one of the series’ best.” You can read our full review through here.
Ys 9: Monstrum Nox is currently available on PS4, though the game will also be releasing for PC and Nintendo Switch some time later this year. A precise release date for that has yet to be announced, so stay tuned to GamingBolt for more updates on when that happens.
