Falcom Is Prepping A PlayStation 4 Game

By Spencer . December 24, 2013 . 6:30pm

image Separate from the Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash sequel, Falcom is quietly (well, not too quietly since they are talking about it!) developing a PlayStation 4 game. This game has not been announced yet.


The news comes from interviews with different studios about their 2014 plans. Maybe this game is related to the mystery project Falcom teased last week?

  • Audie Bakerson

    Clearly its Faxanadu 2!

  • PS4 specifically? Wonder what Falcom have in store.


    A new Dragon Slayer

    • MrTyrant

      Could be a remake of the originals too.


        And going by the 86x arctecture of the PS4 we can get a good game since falcom knows how to work with x86. I will control the hype for now because of the new online game trend that is happening in japan.

    • Lightthrower

      Dragon Slayer became Legend of Heroes series and they make 1 per year so…. already covered.

      • MrTyrant

        They can still do a remake, new game or spin off based kind of game like when they did Nayuta no Kiseki, remember? that game was not part of the kiseki saga we know but still Legend of Heroes, it was an spin-off being action based like Ys and was released after Ao no Kiseki and before Zero Evolution and Sen no Kiseki.

      • brostar

        No Legend of heroes was a spin-off and they pretty much dropped the Dragon slayer name after the first two games. So Dragon Slayer still hasn’t been covered since Xanadu next.

      • Haganeren

        Well, it’s not exactly right. Legend of Heroes 1 is Dragon Slayer 6 and Legend of Heroes 2 is Dragon Slayer 8. (Lord Monach is considered to be Dragon Slayer 7)

        Xanadu is Dragon Slayer 2 and there is a series out of it which is not Dragon Slayer related. (Legend of Xanadu, Faxanadu, Xanadu Next…)

        So it’s totally possible to see a Dragon Slayer 9 one day. The thigs is : Almost every Dragon Slayer is quite different from one another.


        Eyuu Densetsu was a DS spin off that managed to turn in its own recognized franchise and don’t have anything more to do with the Dragon Slayer franchise

  • dahuuuundge

    Dragon Slayer on the PS4!?

  • DesmaX

    Certainly a new Xanadu!

    Nah, it’s probably the new Ys game. Whatever it is, I’m interessed, I think Falcom games are better on home consoles (Especially Ys. I can’t see anything on the little screen)

    • icecoffemix

      Gawd I hope you’re right with Xanadu. Just had a blast playing Next recently.

  • DanielGearSolid


  • Edmund Ng

    Dont care what it is but this is awesome news, one more reason to pick up a ps4 for me next year.

  • icecoffemix

    Hoh ho~ Interesting!

  • brian

    That character silhouette looks suspiciously like Adol’s.

  • finally a reason to start looking into the ps4 for me

  • dark-kyon

    off topic,if you are interested in the jrpg time and eternity ps3,this week is in sale in us ps store for 20 us(50%off),i tell for what this deal is not listed in the playstation store updade.

  • JeremyTMH

    Looks like Ys.

  • Go2hell66

    Ys VIII plz

  • Ryuki

    Falcom why? I was gonna hold off on buying a PS4 for a while then you go prepping for a game on it. ;w;

  • Pockystix

    Final Fantasy XV, Tales of, Falcom game, and Deep Down.

    RPGs seem to be off to a better start this console gen.

    • Rick

      Versus looks like trash. An easy pass.

      • Detrimont

        how so?

      • Pekola

        rick pls.

        Final Fantasy games have the highest budget and biggest polish and best presentation than all other JRPG’s.

        Maybe it will suck. But it’ll be the prettiest, best looking sucky JRPG thus far.

    • H_Floyd

      All (probably) action RPGs…

      RPGs are off to the same start this console gen as last console gen. Get some turn-based RPGs on the console menu–that would be a different and better change of pace.

      • Pockystix

        you got me there

        I would love for some more console turn-based rpgs. . .

  • Weeb

    With this and Yakuza Ishin, I’m actually getting interested in the PS4.

  • jujubee88

    In Falcom we trust.

  • megaten666

    I hoped something for PS3. Just be an Ys game, plz.

  • cloudcaelum

    New YS for PS4, will be like a PS3 looking game for sure but can’t wait for break my gamepad…

  • Neophoton

    PS4 just keeps getting better.

  • PoweredByHentai

    This will be the Ys-iest purchase anyone has ever made. XD

    I’ll take my leave now.

    • DesmaX

      Ys, please do that

  • Learii

    already? I wish they can wait longer because I didn’t buy a ps4 yet

  • Interesting. They haven’t done much with PS3 till later on but making a PS4 game early on. Trails must have given them the budgets.

    Welp there’s at least 3 games I want on PS4 now but I’ll have to wait and see if this is XSEED-able.

  • Slayven19

    Guess they are trying to make me get a ps4 earlier than planned.

  • Surging

    I am always excited for a big AAA ps4 game, 1080p/60fps :)

  • Chido55

    All my Ysssss!!!
    Just saying that Ys:MoC is taking every seconds of my gaming sessions now, damn I love it hard.

  • pixxxelz

    Definitely a YS game just look at that silhouette! Whatever it is tho I’m excited!

  • Lambo_21

    which will never make it to the US most likely… :(

  • Bender Rodriguez

    I doubt it’s a new Ys game since that isn’t much of a surprise, but based on that silhouette I think it could be a new Brandish game or a remake of an older one. That swordsman looks a lot more like Ares than Adol.
