|XSEED Games Packs Two PC Launches Into November - Release Dates Confirmed for Xanadu Next and Senran Kagura: Bon Appetite!|
XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, today announced that the Nihon Falcom RPG Xanadu Next will release worldwide on November 3rd, with rhythm spin-off to the shapely shinobi series, Senran Kagura Bon Appétit! – Full Course, to follow on November 10th. Xanadu Next will be available on Windows PC for $19.99 via Steam, GOG.com, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle, with a launch week discount of 10%. Senran Kagura Bon Appétit! – Full Course will be available on Windows PC for $29.99 on Steam, with other platforms to potentially be announced at a later time. The title will also have a 10% discount on offer for its first week of availability on Steam.
Xanadu Next is an exploration-centric action RPG from Nihon Falcom, the acclaimed creators of the Ys and The Legend of Heroes RPG franchises. Originally released in Japan in 2005, this is the first time global audiences will be able to experience this distinguished entry in the long-running franchise. Representing their immensely popular Dragon Slayer series and serving as a spiritual follow-up to the late ‘80s cult classic Faxanadu, Xanadu Next puts the player in the shoes of a gravely injured knight given a new lease on life through ancient magic, who must now seek a legendary sword called “Dragon Slayer” to ensure his survival.
Set on the medieval Europe-inspired Harlech Island, players will explore the many different and interconnected environments of the world around them while battling vicious enemies in real-time, utilizing various unique skills attached to the many weapons they find along the way. Through a variety of ability-enhancing items that allow access to new areas, “Guardians” that grant passive effects, stat customization with the ability to level-down for point redistribution, and more, a multitude of mysteries surrounding the ancient land of Xanadu lay waiting to be unraveled.
In Senran Kagura Bon Appétit! – Full Course, the grand rivalry between girls’ academies continues as the shapely shinobi take a break from their usual hand-to-hand, beat-’em-up style combat to face off in an entirely different kind of battle — with delicious results. The shinobi master Hanzō has promised the winner of his first annual “Super Dish Gourmet Cook-Off” a magical scroll that can grant any one wish. Driven by their own desires – or perhaps just idle curiosity – 22 playable buxom babes from Japan’s secret ninja schools have signed up for the tournament, ready to put their reflexes, memory and speed to the test in a cooking competition unlike any other.
Culinary warfare is carried out through an array of rhythm battles in which players tap the correct buttons in time with the beat to rack up combos and determine the size and quality of the resulting dish. After selecting a competitor, players are challenged to create the ultimate Super Dish and unlock a special feast for the eyes. The emphasis is on outrageous humor, tasty food, and plenty of eye candy, so get ready to slice and dice… up some delicious treats while rocking out to some funky beats!
The Windows PC version of the quirky rhythm game, Full Course, includes the base game, the Gessen x Hebijo Expansion, and all previously released downloadable content available in the PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system version.
Xanadu Next, developed by Nihon Falcom and published by XSEED Games, will release for Windows PC via Steam, GOG.com, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle on November 3rd for $19.99 with a 10% launch week discount. More information on Xanadu Next can be found at the newly launched website at xanadunext.com.
Senran Kagura Bon Appétit! – Full Course, originally developed by Meteorise together with Marvelous Inc. of Japan for the “PSVita” system and published by XSEED Games in North America, will release for Windows PC on Steam on November 10th for $29.99 with a 10% launch week discount and includes all of the previously released DLC from the “PSVita” system version.

|Insight Into the Creation of Root Letter|
PQube Ltd will soon be releasing the hotly-anticipated √Letter (‘Root Letter’) - the gorgeous Visual Novel from Kadokawa Games hitting PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on October 28th in Europe and in North America on November 8th 2016.
Root Letter follows an investigation into the disappearance of a young girl 15 years in the past. Armed only with a collection of letters from high school – the player must interrogate old school-friends, now adults, about the events of the past.
Working closely with Shimane Prefecture, Kadokawa Games have strived to create a sense of place like no other visual novel before it. Accurately reflecting the real-word town of Matsue in which it is set, Root Letter allows players to experience a hitherto un-seen side of Japanese life and culture in a videogame.
A romantic rural setting. A close knit small town. A quiet suburban corner of Japan. Far away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, Root Letter brings a very different kind of atmosphere for Japanese game fans – and one that’s been masterfully created in painstaking detail.
This makes for a perfect setting in which to explore Root Letter’s themes. Producer and Kadokawa Games CEO Yoshimi Yasuda, Director Zin Hasegawa and renowned character designer Minoboshi Taro combine to deliver a Visual Novel that explores human emotion, feelings of nostalgia and the desire to change the past.
What if you could change the past? How does the passing of time change us as human beings? These sentiments, and so much more, are touched on in the forthcoming Root Letter.
√Letter for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita will be released by PQube in Europe on the 28th of October and in North America on the 8th of November 2016
