Tokyo Xanadu eX+ will be seeing English release on Switch in the west, publisher Aksys Games and developer Falcom just revealed. Fans will be able to pick it up in June 2024.

Tokyo Xanadu eX+ was originally announced for Switch last year and released in Japan last June. This version of the action RPG includes new scenarios, new playable characters, new modes, and more.

Here’s an overview of the game:

Ys X sales

Falcom recently held a financial results briefing, and during the event, one investor had some criticism for the graphics in Ys X: Nordics. President Toshihiro Kondo responded with some interesting comments.

Kondo mentioned that Falcom is giving consideration to the graphics in its games, but the main issue seems to be time. With the company looking to put out at least one new game each year – whether it’s Ys, The Legend of Heroes, or something else – maximizing visuals isn’t an easy task. Falcom is also putting out new titles with under 100 employees.

Ys X Switch PlayStation development

Ys X: Nordics is a bit of a landmark release for Falcom as it’s the first time that the company’s Switch version launched alongside the PlayStation release. Of course, we’re referring to Japan here – NIS America tends to bring everything over to North America and Europe later.

Toshihiro Kondo spoke about developing Ys X for both Switch and PlayStation in a recent interview with Joshin Web. Falcom kept Nintendo’s console in mind from the beginning, and this version was actually completed first. Kondo did also pointed out how the company needed to consider Switch’s specs in mind during development.

System: Switch
Release Date: September 19, 2023
Developer: Falcom
Publisher: NIS America

In The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails, Nayuta is a young lad returning home from studying abroad. Summer vacation is to be spent back with your friends, after all. Getting back to his home of Remnant Isle, Nayuta and his best friend Cygna decide to spend their summer starting their old business back up. Sort of jacks of all trades, the two gallivant as handymen, taking on any kind of job thrown their way with glee. Eventually their work leads them to a mysterious set of ruins, and it is there that they find that they’ve perhaps stumbled upon the most daunting job yet. While Nayuta and Cygna start out hanging around for a simple summer vacation, a fateful encounter with the mysterious fairy Noi sparks a lot of questions and a lot of discovery. Exploring the ruins, Nayuta soon discovers an entire other world – Lost Heaven.
