Nihon Falcom has already provided plenty of details for Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, the next sequel in the prestigious Ys franchise. However, on March 24th at the Dengeki Game Festival 2019 from 5 PM to 6:30 PM JST, the developer will debut footage for the game. President Toshihiro Kondo will be on hand for the debut, and will also talk about the future of the Trails series.
Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is out for PS4 in Japan this year, with no information on a Western release date yet. However, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 will be receiving a release in North America and Europe in the Fall, only for PS4. Perhaps Kondo will talk about Trails of Cold Steel 4 and its potential Western release?
Regardless, both announcements will be worth waiting for. Ys IX: Monstrum Nox aims to do several new things with the franchise, including a new protagonist, new mechanics – including vertical movement – and a new setting with the Prison City of Bardeuk. Stay tuned for more information in the meantime.
