XSEED Games is known for publishing games that you might not otherwise get to play if they themselves didn’t publish them and they have just announced their 2013 lineup of action and RPG titles for North America. First off on the list is KILLER IS DEAD, which was jointly developed by both KADOKAWA GAMES and Goichi Suda’s (SUDA51) GRASSHOPPER MANUFACTURE studio for PS3 and Xbox 360. This move was clearly already in the works prior to GungHo’s acquisition of GRASSHOPPER MANUFACTURE that was reported yesterday.
XSEED is ringing in the New Year by sharing a glimpse of our upcoming lineup of great titles for 2013, including the exciting partnership for KILLER IS DEAD, the newest creation from KADOKAWA GAMES and SUDA51, which I personally selected to bring to the US market.
-Shinichi Suzuki, President and CEO of XSEED Games
Confirmed handheld titles in 2013 include RPG adventure Rune Factory 4 (3DS), Ys: Memories of Celceta (PS Vita), and Valhalla Knights 3 (PS Vita). On the PC side XSEED will be publishing Y’s I & II Chronicles+ for release on Steam. Finally (and most near and dear to my heart) you can expect the highly anticipated action RPG Pandora’s Tower for the Wii this spring.
