Xseed released FuRyu-developed dungeon crawler, Unchained Blades, as a download title on the PSP earlier this year, but its Nintendo eShop release is still pending. Why the delay?

 

When we asked Xseed’s Executive Vice President, Ken Berry, the same question earlier in the month, he shared: “We have to work through a lot of technical hurdles for the eShop release of Unchained Blades. We could be looking at an early December release if things continue to go well.”

 

Then, more recently, a fan on Xseed’s Facebook page (thanks: GoNintendo) asked about the possibility of the game’s sequel, Unchained Blades Exxiv, being localized. To this, Xseed replied: “We’re still struggling to get the original out on 3DS first. After that’s finally out the door (hopefully December), then maybe we can start thinking about the sequel.”

 

Unchained Blades Exxiv, also for the PSP and Nintendo 3DS, features a new cast of characters drawn by various well-known artists, including Yoshitaka Amano.
