Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is one of our picks for the best soundtracks of 2021, best PS4 games of 2021, and best PC games of 2021. NIS America has begun a week of Falcom-related announcements with the announcement of an Ys IX: Monstrum Nox PS5 port. This port will have no new features, but it will include all cosmetic DLC from the start. It also gives new players another chance to check it out with a new platform release. I’m hoping the PC version’s improvements come to PS5 in some form here as Ys IX is best on PC. A release date has not been announced yet. Watch the Ys IX: Monstrum Nox PS5 trailer below:

Ys IX PS5 features
The PS4 version played on PS5 already supports 4K and 60fps, so I’m not sure what this version will bring barring the inclusion of cosmetic DLC. Hopefully the PC version’s draw distance improvements can be brought over to PS5 in some form. You can try the PS4 demo here.
