Ys IX teases three new playable characters

The Falcom Twitter account has published a new screenshot of Ys IX: Monstrum Nox showcasing a character fighting against a swarm of bats.

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals this is a new playable character who wields two swords at a time.

The magazine also teases that in addition to this character, a cat-eared, silver-haired woman, and black-haired young man (who apparently looks straight out of a Tales of game) are also playable.

It also mentions that the “Nox” in the title “Ys IX: Monstrum Nox” is an important point, and that the concept of “night” will function as an in-game system.

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan in 2019.
