Ys IX: Monstrum Nox Launches on Switch in July


The latest adventures of Adol Christin will continue on the Nintendo Switch as Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is coming to the hybrid console later this summer.

And while the summer is looking to be packed full of video games, this is one I’d recommend not skipping out on, especially if you love JRPGs and need something to keep your interest for some time.

Taking place shortly after Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, Adol and his travelling companion Dogi arrive in Balduq. Most games in the series begin with this duo appearing in a new location before vehemently thrusting themselves into whatever the locals are dealing with at the time. In this case, Adol is thrown into jail as he arrives in the Prison City of Balduq.

M review left me glowing and the series is a staple for me at this point.  If you prefer the mobility of being able to play your video games on Nintendo Switch, then you’ll want to check out Ys IX: Monstrum Nox when it launches on July 6, 2021.


Bobby has been gaming since he was old enough to walk. Since then, the interest has only grown stronger, and here we are today. Follow Bobby on Twitter, and just go with it. @bpashalidis
