EA Talks About Populous DS’ New Gods, Origins, And The Wiis In Bit World

By Spencer . November 7, 2008 . 2:55pm

Xseed and Electronic Arts are bringing Populous to the DS in North America next week, but it’s not exactly the Populous you remember. Sure, Populous DS has the classic land shaping / civilization growing gameplay with mouse-like touch screen controls, but this version of Populous has new deities and Wiis. I asked Takahiro Murakami, Lead […]

By Spencer . October 20, 2008 . 8:09pm

Xseed will finish their work with Populous DS on November 11 when the game arrives in North America. The revised DS version includes new gods, touch screen controls, a Where’s Waldo like Hide & Seek mini-game, a wireless multiplayer mode, and a world where the towns are Nintendo consoles. Populous DS is one of three […]

Marvelous makes the Wii remote a royal scepter with Little King’s Story

By Spencer . June 11, 2008 . 5:02pm

Xseed and Marvelous are joining forces to publish Little King's Story (Ousama Monogatari) in North America. On top of the Japanese name you may recall the game referred to as “Project O” when Cing, the team behind Hotel Dusk: 215, was originally announced as the developer. Little King Story puts you in the shoes of […]

Welcome to E3, XSeed

By Spencer . May 21, 2008 . 10:34am

Two years ago NIS America stopped showing up to E3. This year Atlus won’t be around, but out of the blue XSeed will be. This will be the first E3 where XSeed is around with a line up of games on the show floor. I’m sure their line up will include a handful of games […]

Xseed and Marvelous unite in the name of Valhalla Knights

By Spencer . May 9, 2008 . 6:52am

Marvelous has been dormant as a publisher in North America. Key titles like No More Heroes and Luminous Arc were published by Ubisoft and Atlus respectively. This is about to change, Marvelous is ready to make a mark and Xseed is going to help them.   Xseed and Marvelous signed a co-publishing agreement, which means […]

The slings and arrows of Wild ARMs XF

By Rolando . March 12, 2008 . 8:09pm

Wild ARMs XF is a bit of a mixed bag. On one hand, the game does a good job of taking the Wild ARMs series into SRPG territory by offering a unique outing and a bit "unorthodox" yet rewarding approach to battles. At the same time, though, the game doesn't bother holding your hand when […]

A girl, a dog set and a dash of the Wild West. First play with Wild ARMs XF

By Spencer . March 4, 2008 . 10:31pm

On the surface Clarissa Arwin, the first character you meet in Wild ARMs XF, looks like the late Princess of Elesius. Also on the surface, Wild ARMs XF appears to have ordinary strategy RPG combat goals such as walking up to enemies and whacking them with swords. Looks can be deceiving.   In Act 1-2 […]

Out in the open, AQ Interactive owns XSeed Games

By Spencer . February 22, 2008 . 12:40am

Ever wonder why Victorious Boxers Revolution got localized for North America? Cavia developed the title and they fall under the growing AQ Interactive umbrella. Unbeknownst to most, XSeed Games is also part of the AQ Interactive family.   I found out about this awhile ago by reading AQ Interactive’s financial report statements, but I thought […]

Wild ARMs 5 / Wild ARMs XF connectivity revised for North America

By Spencer . February 12, 2008 . 6:31pm

I don’t think this is well documented, but the Japanese version of Wild ARMs XF has a connectivity feature that unlocks additional content if you own Wild ARMs 5. Since XSeed released Wild ARMs 5 and are about to release Wild ARMs XF I wondered if the bonus items would appear in the North American […]

Master combat in Wild ARMs XF, XSeed talks tactics

By Spencer . February 7, 2008 . 2:51pm

Remember the Wild ARMs XF interview over at PSP Fanboy? We’re following up with an in depth look at the job system. Jimmy Soga from XSeed put together an introduction to four of the twenty job classes in Wild ARMs XF and shared strategies on how to use them effectively. After wards other team members […]

Wild ARMs XF outlined and interviewed (not by us)

By Spencer . January 31, 2008 . 3:14pm

Just so it’s out in the open, I was planning on doing an interview with XSeed about Wild ARMs XF. However, after reading Nick Doerr’s excellent interview over a PSP Fanboy it would be pretty redundant. I suggest all Wild ARMs fans should head over there to find out about the story, game length and […]

Anime meets sports in Victorious Boxers: Revolution

By Andrew . November 5, 2007 . 1:49pm

Sports games are perhaps the most interesting genre on the Wii right now.  Gamers can now experience a more immersive sports game more than ever due to the system's motion sensing capabilities.  Victorious Boxers: Revolution is unique in its approach compared to pretty much any sports game I've played for the system.  Hit past the […]

AQ Interactive and XSeed united. Hope for Anata Wo Yurusanai?

By Spencer . September 11, 2007 . 12:38pm

I don’t think many people know this, but Japanese publisher AQ Interactive has a stake in XSeed Games that benefits both companies. AQ Interactive has a capable studio to localize their games and XSeed has more titles to work on. This is probably the reason why XSeed Games is handling Hajime no Ippo Revolution and […]
