On the game's website, Falcom notes the contents of the update. The post states that version 1.07 will allow for Ys 9: Monstrum Nox to fully operate at 4K resolution when being played on the PlayStation 5. Players who previously attempted to load the game using the PS5 may have experienced performance issues and frequent crashes. As the Ys 9: Monstrum Nox is not currently available as a PS5 game, but can still be played via backward compatibility, this newest patch improves the game's performance on the next-gen console. The update will also include various other bug fixes, including an issue some players experienced involving not being able to use the confirm button to send a message.
As of now, the update has only been released in Japan. Currently, the English version has been updated up to version 1.01. Other regions will have to be patient for more news regarding future updates.
Ys 9: Monstrum Nox is currently available on the PS4 and the PS 5 via backward compatibility, and is expected to launch for the Nintendo Switch and PC via the Steam Store this coming summer.
Although Tales of Arise won't be releasing until later this year after being delayed due to the pandemic, fans are nonetheless excited for the first mainline game from the Tales series in five years. Tales of Arise promises to evolve and revitalize the series with a team made of veterans and newcomers alike. Over the years, the Tales franchise has become one of the biggest RPG series in Japan alongside Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy due to its unique Linear Motion Battle System and interesting narrative themes.
While the Tales games have similarities in their gameplay mechanics, they have spanned a variety of different settings and featured different casts of characters. As a result, players will find that they enjoy certain entries in the series more than others and opinions can vary greatly as most players will not have completed all sixteen mainline games. Nonetheless with Tales of Arise coming soon, ranking the games can help players decide which titles to go through first.
In particular, Tales of Abyss features a phenomenal character development arc in its protagonist, Luke von Fabre and includes one of the most interesting villains in the series. On the other hand, Tales of Vesperia has the best pacing of any Tales game and a great dynamic between the cast of characters. These games shouldn't be missed by any fan looking forward to the release of Tales of Arise.
