Ys IX: Monstrum Nox – Demo and digital pre-orders now live in Europe and North America

While everyone was busy with the Nintendo Direct E3 2021 presentation, NIS America went ahead and stealth-released the demo version for Ys IX: Monstrum Nox in Europe and North America. It allows you to get a glimpse of the Prison City of Balduq with two key locations, and try out the Monstrum’s Gifts (special abilities). Unfortunately, you cannot transfer your progress to the full version of the game.

Also, the full version of the game is now available for digital pre-order in Europe and North America. The only edition available right now is the Digital Deluxe Edition which normally costs 74.99€ / $74.99, but is available for 59.99€ / £53.99 / $59.99 (same price as the Standard and Day One Edition) thanks to the pre-order discount.

The Digital Deluxe Edition includes quite a lot of pieces of DLC:

  • Crimson King’s “Monstrum Troupe” Costume (normally 1.99€ / $1.99)
  • White Cat’s “Monstrum Troupe” Costume (normally 1.99€ / $1.99)

  • Raging Bull’s “Holstein Ranch” Costume
  • Doll’s “Erdlingen Gothic” Costume

At launch, the Day One Edition (including some but not all of the DLC listed above) will also be available for purchase for 59.99€ / £53.99 / $59.99, presumably to be replaced at a later date with the Regular Edition.
