XSEED is a big Switch supporter, will be making announcements “soon”

Posted on April 10, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

XSEED often tends to support Nintendo platforms. Even when the Wii U was winding down, the publisher brought Shantae: Half-Genie Hero and Exile’s End to Wii U by working with WayForward and Magnetic Realms respectively.

With Switch, XSEED once again has plans to support a Nintendo system. A representative from the company told one fan that announcements will be made “soon”. Although, mysteriously, “it may not specifically be for the titles and series you’re looking for.”

XSEED said:

“We are big supporters of the Switch so you’ll definitely be seeing some announcements about it from us soon, though it may not specifically be for the titles and series you’re looking for.”

    Hmmmm, I hope it isn’t Blizzard soon (TM) :P. Whatever the case, they’ve got my attention.

  • hi v3.0

    More weeb games please

    Trails games on Switch would be nice, but I guess that won’t be it then…

  • I’ll buy The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel I-II again if they port it.

  • They could even bring Senran Kagura Versus games to Switch.
    Even though I already played and have them. I would prefer Estival Versus though.

    I’m still waiting in my corner for a Rune Factory 5 even though the devs closed down. Someday it will happen…mark my words…

    • Fandangle

      With the 3DS hacked it’s best either to just pirate or import these days.

        What does that have to do with wanting RF5

      • Puffdaddy

        Nono, the last Rune factory was Rune Factory 4, but the devs closed down even though that was they’re best selling Rune Factory (and sold much better than expected). I’m hoping for another one even though the original devs closed down.

        • Fandangle

          Oh, I misread that. Wasn’t that what Magna Carta was supposed to be?

    • ar4757

      I think it will hapoen soon, Marvelous kept all the devs besides a couple

      I hope they take it back from NISA, but really, Ys’ is Falcom’s game not Xseed’s. More than likely they’ll translate a bunch of smaller japanese games, or maybe Marvelous has some announcements.

    Could we see something for them on the new direct?

    • Burning Gravity


    • Tlink7

      Probably at E3 or just at some random moment, next direct seems extremely focussed on ARMS and Splatoon

      • Nowhere Man

        Yeah, which is pretty disappointing considering the marketing they’ve already put into those two. Would like a focus on lesser known titles or something new. Hopefully they’ll have a surprise announcement or two.

        • Tlink7

          I don’t think there will be much interesting in the upcoming direct for people who aren’t interested in Splatoon or ARMS. I can wait till E3, it is only a few months away and I still have Zelda <3

  • Nowhere Man

    Legend of Heroes and Ys ports, please 🙂

  • Daniel

    They published Story of Seasons in NA and an Switch version of the game was announced for the Switch some weeks ago. It’s probably just that.

  • Translation: it isn’t Senran Kagura or Trails. Fine by me. But are there any major Japanese games for the Switch that haven’t been announced for localization?

  • R.Z.

    Games no one is looking for ?
