Falcom has updated the official website for Ys IX: Monstrum Nox with new information and screenshots introducing Grimwald’s Night and Larva Battles systems.
Get the details below.
■ Grimwald’s Night
During “Grimwald’s Night,” the Monstrum gather in a different dimension where the sky is dyed deep red and a battle against countless monsters called “Larva” unfolds. By wiping out all the Larva and putting an end to Grimwald’s Night, the barriers spread across the Prison City Balduq will release, expanding the area of exploration within the city.
Since Grimwald’s Night becomes an all-out war between the Monstrum and Larva, even the Monstrum that are not in your party will participate in battle, and fight the Larva based on their own judgments.
—1. A huge miasma will appears in front of a barrier in the city.
—2. A battle against countless Larva in Grimwald’s Night unfolds.
—3. After the battle, the barrier is released, expanding the area of exploration.
■ Larva Battles
By touching the dark miasma found all over the Prison City Balduq, the surrounding landscape will temporarily become monotone, and a battle against Larva will occur. By exterminating the Larva that appear, the miasma will disappear and your “Nox Gauge” will accumulate, which required for Grimwald’s Night to occur.
—1. Find miasma in the city.
—2. Touch the miasma for Larva to appear.
—3. Exterminate the Larva to build up your Nox Gauge.
—These are some of the Larva you will face.
Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is due out for PlayStation 4 on September 26 in Japan.
