About this game

Feared Protectors: Play as any of the six notorious Monstrum, each with their own unique Gifts that grant abilities such as scaling sheer walls or detecting hidden objects to protect the city from shadowy creatures.

The World Within the Walls: Explore the massive city, accept quests to aid the townsfolk, and enter the Grimwald Nox to vanquish the threats to Balduq.

Strength of the Night: Familiar mechanics such as Flash Dodge and Flash Guard allow you to outmaneuver your foes, while new additions such as Gifts and Boost Mode further augment your ability to fight.

Story

"What is real is defined by what is not.
Who one is defined by who one isn't."
To move forward, one must accept these truths.
"Yes, in this prison—this cradle—
my dreams and reality became one."

Renowned adventurer Adol “the Red” Christin and his companion Dogi arrive at Balduq, a city annexed by the Romun Empire, only for Adol to be detained before setting foot inside. While imprisoned, he meets a mysterious woman named Aprilis who turns him into a Monstrum, a being with supernatural Gifts and the power to exorcise monsters. Now, Adol must ally with his fellow Monstrum to fend off the fearsome threats emerging from a shadowy dimension called the Grimwald Nox, as well as unravel the mysteries of the Monstrum curse, and the truth behind the unrest within Balduq.

Adol's ninth adventure keeps things fresh.

Absolutely loved it. I'm a huge fan of the Ys series and it lived up to the series' reputation. Definitely one of my favorite games in the series at this point. I highly recommend it to anyone who's a big fan of action-RPGs.

I liked: The sometimes mournful/spooky, sometimes absolutely rocking soundtrack The incredibly satisfying movement options e.g. flying for a short time or diving into the shadows to move quickly across the ground The mostly well-balanced and fluid combat, especially fun on Nightmare mode (most of the time) The various NPCs' sidestories exploried via quests and cute little interactions I disliked: The occasionally tedious means of progressing, ie. collecting Nox to unlock the next story section gated behind what's basically tower defense The low-budget feel of the game in places, e.g. the stiff and slightly janky looking animations in cutscenes, underwhelming visual effects
