Xseed Are Teasing Something… Or Multiple Things

By Ishaan . January 30, 2013 . 10:21pm

It looks like Xseed are up to their old tricks again. The publisher made the following tweet earlier this evening along with the image attached below:


[End of the Day Delights(?)] Our intern wants to be an editor, so he tried his hand at writing. Whatcha think? ;-)


Let’s see, now… “Man in a killer suit” sounds like a hint at Grasshopper Manufacture’s Killer Is Dead, which Xseed are suspected to be publishing.


“I or II” sounds like it could be hinting at Ys I and II for PC.


The parts about a dragon and a bad memory could be Rune Factory 4.


We’re not certain what the red-coloured “five” is supposed to indicate though. Is it hinting at five titles? A game with “5” in the title? Or does the red highlight mean that it’s a red-herring, meant to be ignored?

    Large Forest = Ys Celceta : Sea of Trees !!!

  • ヴァルラシュ

    alright! rune factory…dammit!

  • Let’s see 5 titles…
    1. Killer is Dead
    2. Ys Celceta
    3.Ys I and II (For Steam)
    4. Conception: Please Have My Baby
    5. Rune Factory 4 or
    Fatal Frame: Deep Crimson Butterfly (because of the night butterflies and the 5 is crimson red)

    • farios

      It’s probably Rune Factory 4 like Ishaan said

      • I know, it’s just that the night butterflies threw me off. :D

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Conception: Please Have My Baby

  • SprintsMcGee

    Red colored 5 sounds like Ys 5 to me. You know, since Adol Christin has red hair and all. But that doesn’t really make sense…..so I’ll say Ys Celceta.

  • darqred

    Be kind of surprising that Natsume doesn’t have Rune Factory 4 already, but sounds great.

  • Combo

    Well they found data relating to Ys I & II in Xseed’s Steam database, and it says “The dragon was steaming mad”, so it’s probably that. Hopefully the forest thing is indeed Ys IV.

    • Barrylocke89

      More Ys is never a bad thing. Ready your bumper cars, guys!

  • Alexander Aubert

    i will be happy if the meaning of 2 is trails in the sky SC

  • kylehyde

    “the red-coloured “five” is supposed to indicate though. Is it hinting at
    five titles? A game with “5” in the title? Or does the red highlight
    mean that it’s a red-herring, meant to be ignored?”

    Making a really wild guess, I will dare that it could be Senran Kagura Burst: The Crimson girls.

    I mean each game centers around 5 girls and the crimson is basically a bright red color. Maybe I’m dreaming, I’m very sleepy at this moment and is almost 1 a.m. here. Whatever it could be, I hope that it make somebody happy.

    Edit: unfortunately the five refered to the five titles announced today, anyway, all are great.

    • Oh shit, I never thought of that.

    • I would completely flip out if that was true.

    • Brimfyre

      You really are Kyle Hyde….

  • Pockystix



  • Dede Ogbe

    Bad memory? Demon Gaze?

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      I don’t know anything about Demon Gaze, so you’re probably right. I initially thought the forest and memory bits were hinting towards Ys Celceta, but I don’t think they would put two hints for one game.

    • farios

      Well there are 3 possibility for that

      Ys Celceta
      Rune Factory 4
      Demon Gaze

      I think Ys is the most likely to be the answer, would be nice if we gots all three of them

  • Shaun Huseman

    5 could signify along with the recent Ys releases, the fifth game brought here by Xseed, being Ys Sea of Celceta. Ys 1 and 2, Origins, Oath in Felgana, Ys Seven. It’s a stretch but who knows. I just want the damn game lol.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Killer is Dead teases? Killer is Dead confirmed. Anything more is a pleasant surprise. Let’s go Xseed!

  • AwesomeD6

    Dragon = Dragon’s Crown ?

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Atlus is already the publisher for that though

  • Curan_Altea

    Well great. Localization news has been pretty good lately, let’s keep the ball rolling.

  • TatsuyaKyo

    Hmmm, “night butterflies” and “prison fortress” might be viable clues. “Never paid” could also be one.

    …Anyone got an idea?

    • JustThisOne

      Wrecking my brain for ideas about the prison fortress, but I’m really coming up short. It seems like a pretty big thing in this poem but I just.. I just can’t think of an upcoming game that focuses on prisons.

      • TatsuyaKyo

        Well, I have already considered Criminal Girls, but I highly doubt it, since it was released more than two years ago. Still, it takes place in a prison, so it’s still possible.

    • Solomon_Kano

      The only thing prison fortress brings to mind is the already known Pandora’s Tower. Orrrr, for a left field pick, Beyond the Labyrinth. I don’t remember any details regarding the labyrinth itself. Maybe it was part of a fortress? And getting lost/trapped is like being imprisoned in a sense. But this is all way out there.

      As for never paid, iirc Demon’s Gaze begins with your character being in debt.

      • TatsuyaKyo

        Can’t believe I forgot about those two…

        Anyway, good guesses.

  • miyamoto

    BRS: Ze Game

  • Dick Mountainjoy

    5 and a Dragon…

    Wishful thinking, but Yakuza 5, Dragon of Dojima?

    Or not.

  • Go2hell66

    Ys plz

    • CirnoLakes

      I see what you did there.

  • Guest

    I’m pretty sure Adol has amnesia in Ys celceta. Bad memory, forest? Don’t let me down Xseed!

  • Pyrofrost

    Hoping the “plus sized” points to Senran Kagura for 3DS, since the producer has already expressed interest in putting it on the eShop in the West and XSeed is a subsidiary of Marvelous.

    Killer is Dead and YS: IV are pretty obvious ones I think.

    EDIT: Didn’t think about it at first, but the “I or II” before the “plus sized” could be pointing at one of the two or both of the recent Senran Kagura games (Burst and Shinovi Versus).
    I think the “or” in the “I or II” throws it off from meaning Ys I and II Chronicles.

  • kupomogli

    Hopefully that five means five games and Killer is Dead, Ys1 and 2, Ys4, Rune Factory 4, and Demon’s Gaze.

  • LaserVision

    And… this is why you Xseed translating your games. They’re so darn creative.

  • Plus sized has to be referring to Senran Kagura…
    … aside from the girls being plus sized in the *cough*, the game itself if plus sized (two games in one).

  • dynamic-zx

    Senran Kagura would be a nice surprise.

  • Yea, I haven’t the slightest clue. I do know Rune Factory 4 and Senran Kagura: Burst has some red and dragons though so Rune Factory 4 and Senran Kagura: Burst it is!

  • there is a possiblity 5th means SC because literally SC is the 5th Eiyuu densetsu released on NA or at least on PSP.

    hopefully it is Sora no Kiseki SC but looks like most poster here forgot about it.

    • farios

      We don’t forget about it, it’s just the image has nothing that hints about SC

  • Uber Once Upon a Time tease. Gives us the answers soon Xseed so we know what they are and can commence the throwing of our hard earned cash at you!

  • Peeka Chu

    “Large forest” brings to mind YS: Sea of Trees. That’s my vote for one for sure, and they’ve brought the other YS games over quite regularly, so it wouldn’t be a surprise.

    • James Keeton

      The thing about him ‘forgetting his task’ too, as I understand Adol is trying to regain his memories in Ys Celceta! I’m very optimistic about that!

  • Flandre Scarlet

    Rune Factory 4, Demon Gaze, Ys, Senran Kagura, any or all of these games would be fantastic.

  • psycho_bandaid

    I want to see the continuation of that story!

  • ragingmerifes

    Sora no Kiseki SC, Ys I or II, Rune Factory or maybe… they are working on more than one.

  • gamefreak86

    Fap Fap Fap

  • I don’t have a clue how people are assuming a senran kagura loc from this. I don’t expect some out of left field, megaton announcement as a result of this. But I could be wrong, and certainly hope I am.

  • brian

    I believe they misspelled subsequently.

  • Reki Honoo

    I’m kinda hoping the 5 means summon night 5.

    • Yuriangels

      god i hope too. that game amazing!

  • Anyone wanna make a guess on the “The End” font? Might be copying font from a game’s logo

  • brian
  • Oltheros

    My optimism for Senran Kagura will never die

  • Ok, so Rune factory 4 is confirmed, what else then?

  • I’m going to keep bringing it up until the day they say “no”, but I want them to bring out Dangan Ronpa.

    • They ady said no. They said they would like to bring it over but they do not have enough budget (or something lk tht) to do it.

  • Brandon001

    Plus Sized babies = Plus sized Boobies = Senran Kagura?

  • Sergio Macellaro

    No TiTs for me….It sucks!!!
    At least Rune Factory and Ys come to (handheld) console me!!!


    • CirnoLakes

      We’ll get it eventually.

      Calm your tits.

  • neogeno

    2013 lineup I believe.

    1. Killer is Dead,
    2. Pandora’s Tower
    3. Rune Factory 4
    4. Valhalla Knights 3
    5. Y’s 1 and 2/ Y’s Celceta

  • Gabi López Ramírez

    Wild Arms…Are you still there?

  • RiuChan

    They’ve already confirmed these 5 games

    Rune Factory 4

    Vallhalla Knights 3

    Ys Celceta

    Ys I & I Chronicles+

    Killer Is Dead

    Has anyone noticed how weird that O is?
    Maybe that’s a clue?

  • Okay, why is everyone so hyped about Senran Kagura? Is the game actually supposed to be good, or does the prospect of partially exposed anime tits in a video game REALLY excite people around here that much? (In which case, shit, why not just go to Danbooru and save yourself $40??)

    • Think of the lame repetiveness of dynasty warriors with jiggly female anatomy. We cant really questions peoples interest. Even though 90% of that interest is driven by there groin region.

      • But like you can get all the anime porn you could ever want on the internet for free, why would you pay $40 out of your own pocket to see it in a crappy softcore video game?
