Ys and its knack for releasing on certain platforms (or regions) first, then others later continues with Ys IX: Monstrum Nox. Earlier, Monstrum Nox saw a release on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Stadia (though not for much longer on that last one). PlayStation 5 will be set to join them next year, though.

Developer Nihom Falcom and publisher NIS America originally released this game back in 2019 on PlayStation 4 in Japan. Throughout 2021, the game’s seen a North American release on the above platforms. And now, Falcom released a brand-new trailer to go with the PlayStation 5 announcement, which you can see below.
