Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is one of our picks for the best soundtracks of 2021best PS4 games of 2021, and best PC games of 2021. I reached out to NIS America following the Ys IX PS5 release date announcement to check in on the port’s features and more. I got confirmation that the port, like Ys VIII on PS5, is being done by Engine Software. This version will include all cosmetic DLC as revealed before. The bad news is that Ys IX on PS5 will not have 120hz support like Ys VIII on PS5. Watch the Ys IX: Monstrum Nox PS5 character 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.
