Dengeki Playstation hosted a livestream of upcoming titles coming out this year and Ys IX: Monstrum Nox was featured with new gameplay footage.

We’ll have to wait and see when Ys IX Monstrum Nox releases on the PlayStation 4 this September in Japan. No word yet on a worldwide release but I’m sure we’ll here news of that this fall. Take a look at the new trailer below:
