Xseed Looking To Bring More Games, “Especially JRPGs,” To PC


In recent years, Xseed have begun to publish games on PC, starting out with Falcom’s Ys games. In a recent interview with the publisher’s Executive Vice-President Ken Berry, Siliconera asked about how those games have done and further PC support.


“They have done great on Steam, and hopefully that introduced a lot of new people to the Ys series so that they will want to check out the latest offering on PS Vita when it comes out later this year,” Berry replied.  “They’ve surpassed our expectations, and we are definitely looking to bring more titles to PC.”


We also brought up the fact that U.K. publisher Ghostlight are bringing Record of Agarest War to PC via Steam, and inquired if Xseed had plans for other PC JRPGs.


Berry replied, “We are absolutely interested in bringing more titles, especially JRPGs, to PC.  We are doing what we can to make it happen, so hopefully we will have an announcement within the next month or so.”
