Here’s a rundown courtesy of the publisher:

“Adol Christin is cursed by a mysterious woman and becomes a Monstrum, a powerful being who can exorcise monsters. To escape from the city of Balduq, he must ally with five other Monstrums, each with their own unique Gifts, and stop the Grimwald Nox, a shadowy dimension on the verge of overflowing into the real world.”

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox launched for the PS4 on February 2, 2021. Kenny wholeheartedly recommended the game, scoring it a 4.5/5 in his review.

If you’re looking forward to playing the game on Nintendo’s hybrid console, you don’t have to wait much longer. The game will arrive on the Switch on July 6 in North America.
