Upcoming action RPG Ys IX: Monstrum Nox just got a playable demo out of the blue on PS4 (and PS5 through backwards compatibility). It's available to download right now from the PlayStation Store, weighing in at 4.9GB.
A bit of background: Ys IX is the latest instalment in Falcom's long running series. The previous title, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, released on PS4 back in 2017, and comes recommended if you're a fan of action adventure with an anime art style.
Ys IX is due to launch early next month, on the 2nd February. It's been out in Japan since last year, where it received a lot of praise upon its release. Here's hoping that the demo gives a good first impression.
