Last weekend I talked with Xseed and was shocked when I found out they got the rights to Game Center CX. In the USA it will be called Retro Game Challenge to match the name of the upcoming series of DVDs when it arrives this winter. Populous DS was also a surprise since it’s an Electronic Arts franchise. I thought EA would eventually cave and localize it, but nope Xseed has been working on it and it’s scheduled to come out this fall.
A lot of people guessed Avalon Code and Rune Factory Frontier, which will be coming out in Q1 2009. I expected Xseed to work on both of these games since they partnered up with Marvelous, but it's nice to hear actual confirmation from the publisher.
Here is a list what Xseed has as E3 with tentative release windows.
Avalon Code (DS) – Q1 2009
Rune Factory Frontier (Wii) – Q1 2009
Little Kings Story (Wii) – Winter 2008
Valhalla Knights 2 (PSP) – Fall 2008
Internal Xseed projects
Populous (DS) – Fall 2008
KORG DS-10 (DS) – Fall 2008
Retro Game Challenge (DS) – Winter 2008
