The game was initially released in Japan for the PS4 on September 26th, 2019.

It follows the same combat system that was introduced with Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, allowing the player to switch between multiple characters.

New to Ys IX, different characters have different traversal abilities, called Monstrum Gifts, which feature gliding and running up walls. These gifts allow the player more freedom when exploring the world.
