Ys IX: Monstrum Nox launches for PlayStation 5 in North America on May 9

NIS America has released a new character trailer for Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, and has revealed that the game will release for PlayStation 5 on May 9 in North America, May 12 in Europe.

This follows up on the Story Trailer and PS5 release announcement from late last year. The trailer gives a little bit more of a story look in and focuses on the Monstrum Gifts that each character is able to use in the field.

Ys IX was originally released in English in February 2021, followed by a Nintendo Switch and Steam release that summer. While Ys IX ended up having a bit of a staggered release schedule over the last few years, the recently-announced Ys X: Nordics is planned to launch for PlayStation 4 and 5 as well as Nintendo Switch this year in Japan. However, an English localization or PC release have yet to be announced.

It's dangerous to face the darkness alone. Adol and his Monstrum allies will need to unite their efforts if they hope to protect Balduq from the creatures of the night. Meet the characters of Ys IX: Monstrum Nox!
