Ys IX: Monstrum Nox - PSN Demo - Let's Play

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox by developer Nihon Falcom and publisher NIS America Inc.Sony Playstation Network Demo spotlight article written by Pierre-Yves.

Just a few weeks left to go before we finally get to explore the newest of Adol the Red’s adventures, NISA released a free demo of Falcom’s Ys IX: Monstrum Nox on the PSN to give us an idea of what awaits us. Split into two gameplay segments totalling no more than ten minutes each, there are two dungeons with four bosses that can be conquered if you’re fast enough to pull it off.

So the first of the two is a more traditional dungeon featuring some of the newest features to the series. Having to think both horizontally and vertically now, you can now run up the walls to higher levels instead of having to find a set of stairs upwards. Equipped with three characters, Adol the Red (The Crimson King), The Doll, and the Raging Bull are in for some fast paced action.

Side to the first dungeon run, the second is a little less traditional with cliff sides that the party can glide between in order to navigate the various elevations that they find themselves on. While the options to run up walls is still available, it’s not really necessary in this case but being fast on your feet is still a must with the rock / paper / scissors approach that the series took a few years back now.

So that’s it for now but we’ll definitely be back for more amazing fast paced action later next month after Nihon Falcom and NIS America Inc.’s Ys IX: Monstrum Nox releases for the PS4.

Note: Gameplay footage was recorded and saved off of a PS5.

Score: N/A
