Update: The game in question is likely Akiba’s Trip 2. Taking the first letter of each word forms “Electric Town”, which is where the game takes place. Looks like this one won’t be for a Nintendo platform sadly.

Original: XSEED is up to something on Twitter. Earlier today, the company posted a message teasing a new announcement of some sort.

XSEED localized Senran Kagura Burst in just 3 months. The company made the news known on Twitter, writing yesterday:

Rune Factory 4 was a much more involved project. With all of the edits XSEED made, it took 9-10 months to localize:

XSEED will be watching Forbidden Magna. The studio does appear to be interested in the recent-revealed 3DS title, as it told a pair of fans that it “looks great”.

The comments in full:

We just learned about it ourselves, but agree that it looks great. We can’t wait to get our hands on it and check it out ourselves eventually.

Yep, completely agree that Forbidden Magna is looking great. We’ll be keeping our eyes on it.

XSEED does have a pretty good relationship with Marvelous AQL. They’ve localized Rune Factory 4 and Senran Kagura Burst, for instance. It wouldn’t be too surprising if XSEED eventually picked up Forbidden Magna for the states as well.

Having trouble locating Rune Factory 4 in stores? There’s a reason for that: the game has been selling quite well.

On Facebook, XSEED mentioned that Rune Factory 4 has sold “well beyond” the publisher’s expectations – so much so that it’s been tough to find a physical copy. XSEED is now working on restocking product “as quickly as possible”. More copies should arrive “soon”.

A little over a month ago, one fan asked XSEED on its Facebook page about the possibility of localizing Game Center CX 3. Unfortunately, the company ruled out the game for publishing in North America.

XSEED wrote:

Nobody would be happier than us to publish it, but our bank would cry…

XSEED did localize the first Game Center CX game as Retro Game Challenge several years. But sadly, the game bombed on the market.

Thanks to Arnell for the tip.


Senran Kagura Burst will launch in North America on November 14, XSEED has announced. Pricing is set at $29.99. The game will be available as a download on the eShop.

You can find the newly opened website here. Screenshots are posted above.
