Ys IX: Monstrum Nox

System: Switch
Release date: July 6, 2021
Developer: Falcom
Publisher: NIS America


While the Ys series has had a small but fiercely dedicated following for many years, Ys VIII was something of a turning point. With a shift to a more open world structure and a greater focus on story, as well as porting efforts that saw the game come to numerous platforms including Switch, the game was a success both in terms of sales and increased mindshare for the series. Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is finally here to follow up on its predecessor’s breakout performance, and outside of some technical hiccups, it does so admirably.

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox initially debuted on PS4, but just came to Switch this week. A comparison has now emerged for both versions.
