Looking sharp! Next, we have our first official look at series protagonist Adol and his platonic(?) life partner Dogi.

Ys IX Dogi

Adol, you're looking... different, my man! Apparently, the adventurer is wanted as a witness by the Romun Empire, and has been detained in the prison city. While trying to escape, he became caught up in a strange incident. Dogi was detained as well, after completing his mission in Altago.

Ys IX also has a new "supernatural action" the player can perform, called "Crimson Line." This ability lets players zip across great distances in an instant, even though obstacles and enemies.
