Engage with residents to gain cooperators within the city.

Falcom has updated the official website for Ys IX: Monstrum Nox with new information and screenshots introducing cooperators and extra contents.

■ Cooperators

The characters Adol meets through the story and quests will become his cooperators!

By engaging with the residents of Balduq through the main story and various quests, they will lend their power to Adol’s activities in the city as cooperators.

Working with residents is not only useful for exploring the city, but also for strengthening characters and obtaining special items.

Take on quests and assertively engage with the residents!

Silhouette: Handler

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox

By getting to know Silhouette through a quest, she will cooperate with Adol as a “Handler.”

In addition to being able to purchase goods from stores you have previously visited via Silhouette, more purchasable goods will be added based on the number of stores you have visited.

Maxim: Black Market Trading

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox

After meeting Maxim somewhere in Balduq, you will be able to trade on the black market.

By trading specific materials, you can obtain items not available in regular shops, including accessories that possess special abilities and rare goods related to certain quests and the story.

There may also be other characters that require you use the Monstrum characters’ supernatural abilities to meet.
