XSEED Games has announced today that they are bringing three new legacy titles to Windows PC. Little King’s Story and Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus will receive high-definition upgrades for their PC releases, and the Nihon Falcom title Xanadu Next will see its Western debut.
Here’s what Ken Berry, Executive Vice President at Marvelous USA had to say regarding the announcement:
“Our commitment has always been to bring fans the games that they want to play, and we definitely want to show PC gamers as much love as we possibly can. With these announcements, I think we’ve made strides in both of those endeavors. We jumped at the chance to publish two of our formerly console-exclusive titles on PC, as well as the highly-anticipated Xanadu Next, which we’re confident that Nihon Falcom fans and newcomers alike will adore.”
Originally for the Wii, Little King’s Story follows the journey of a young boy named Corobo who discovers a magical crown with the ability to make any person follow every command. With this new power, Corobo is made King of his village and sets out to make his kingdom the best around. With the help of his magic crown, he can order townspeople to perform various tasks, such as digging for treasure or destroying obstacles between areas.
Little King’s Story will release for Windows PC in early 2016.
Initially released as a PlayStation Vita exclusive, Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus picks up after the events of Senran Kagura Burst and revisits the rivalry between the Hanzō National Academy students and their sworn enemies at Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy. In addition, both groups must also deal with two brand new sets of opponents from the incredibly strict Gessen Girls’ Academy, as well as the new power-hungry generation of Hebijo students.
The PC update of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus means you’ll be able to appreciate every element of action in full HD, from massive mid-air combos to Secret Ninja Techniques. There are 20 playable characters, each boasting their own special set of skills and abilities, giving players a large variety of playing styles to master.
Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus is scheduled to release on Windows PC in Summer 2016.
Xanadu Next, an exploration-centric action RPG from Nihon Falcom, follows the tale of a mortally injured knight who is given a second chance at life through ancient magic. To ensure his survival, however, he must then embark on a quest for the legendary sword known as the “Dragon Slayer.”
The the story of Xanadu Next is set on the medieval Europe-inspired Harlech Island where players will explore numerous interconnected environments, all while fighting enemies in real-time and utilizing a variety of weaponskills. From ability-enhancing items that allow access to new areas, “Guardians” that grant passive effects, to stat customization with the ability to level-down for point redistribution and more, there are a multitude of mysteries waiting to be discovered in the world of Xanadu.
