Digitally Downloaded covers the release date announcement for Ys IX Monstrum Nox on PlayStation 5

This one has been a long time coming, but NISA has finally given the world a release date for Ys IX: Monstrum Nox. It will land on May 9 in North America, May 12 in Europe, and will have all DLC baked into it.

You have, of course, been able to play Ys IX on your PS5 for a long time now, as it was a PlayStation 4 release back in 2021. This PS5 edition doesn’t have any major updates, I believe, but for some being able to play the game on the PS5 natively will surely be worth it.

It’s a very good game, too – arguably the best in the Ys series – so if you missed it last time around this will be a good chance to catch up. As I wrote in my review of the PS4 version: “Where Ys VIII took the series so close to becoming something that I could love, Ys IX gets it there. It tells a strong story with vibrant characters, has a great setting, gorgeous aesthetics, and slick combat, and most importantly, it balances all of that out in a way that is nuanced and engaging.”

To celebrate the announcement, NISA has also released a new trailer:
