Ys, Rune Factory, and Valhalla Knights Titles to Be Released by XSEED Games
Ys: Memories of Celceta, Rune Factory 4, Valhalla Knights 3, and Ys I & II Chronicles+ will be coming to North America this year, courtesy of XSEED Games.
The company sent out a press release today, detailing the lineup of games for 2013. One of the biggest titles has already been announced, which is Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture's Killer is Dead. But what about the rest? Let's run through the list!
- Rune Factory 4 (3DS) - The next entry in the farming sim/RPG series will be here in the summer! Rune Factory 4 will add new romance options, the option to play as a male or female character, more crafting, and the chance to become an amazing warrior-farmer!
- Valhalla Knights 3 (PS Vita) - This installment of the Valhalla Knights series will appear on the smaller PS Vita, but don't let that fool you; the game will still pack all of trappings you expect from the beefy RPG series, such as "a robust character creation system" and "intense seven-on-seven party-based combat."
- Ys: Memories of Celceta (PS Vita) - Another new title that comes from a storied and long-running series, Memories of Celceta is a reimagining of Ys IV. No, we still don't know how to properly say the series' name (pretty sure it's something like "ihst"!), but the action-RPG action it boasts is second to none!
- Ys I & II Chronicles+ (Windows PC/Steam) - XSEED is taking us back to where it all began by releasing this enhanced remake of the original games. We'll join Adol Christin on his very first journeys and see how the red-haired hero fared in the early days.
Ken Berry, Executive Vice President of XSEED, said, "This will be an amazing year for us. Our portfolio continues to expand and its evident by this stellar lineup of titles, so we're excited to share more details and hear what our fans are most looking forward to playing in the coming year."
With that said, what are you looking forward to play? Let us know in the comments!
