NIS America (NISA) have revealed that Ys IX: Monstrum Nox will be coming to the west, along with a release date, during the New Game+ Expo live stream.

Developed by Falcom, the game follows the continuing adventures of Adol Christin. This time, he has been captured in the city of Balduq. There he is transformed into a Monstrum, a being with supernatural powers.

Alongside other Monstrum, Adol exorcises monsters, fend off threats from the dimension of Grimwald Nox, and unravel the mysteries of Balduq and Monstrum.

You can find the announcement trailer below.

According to the official website, the game will support English and Japanese audio, along with English and French text. You can find the full rundown (via the official website) below.

“What is real…is defined by what is not.
Who one is…is defined by who one isn’t.
To move forward, one must accept these truths.
Yes, in this prison—this cradle—
my dreams and reality became one.”

Renowned adventurer Adol “the Red” Christin and his companion Dogi arrive at Balduq, a city annexed by the Romun Empire, only for Adol to be detained before setting foot inside. While imprisoned, he meets a mysterious woman named Aprilis who turns him into a Monstrum, a being with supernatural Gifts and the power to exorcise monsters. Now, Adol must ally with his fellow Monstrums to fend off the fearsome threats emerging from a shadowy dimension called the Grimwald Nox, as well as unravel the mysteries of the Monstrum curse, and the truth behind the unrest within Balduq.

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is available in Japan, and 2021 in the West on PlayStation 4.
