XSEED localizing new Story of Seasons, Fate/Extella, and Akiba's Beat


Brace yourselves, E3 is coming

XSEED Games revealed its spicy E3 lineup today, and it includes some things we already knew about and some things we figured XSEED was working on but couldn’t yet say for sure.

Among the new confirmations are Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita action game based on Type-Moon‘s Fate series of visual novels (and everything else, really). Should everything go to plan, that will be released on western shores sometime this winter.

Also coming in the cold months (or hot ones, if you live Down Under) is Akiba’s Beat, PS4 and Vita action role-playing game from Tenchu-maker Acquire, that looks like a mashup of Persona 3 and Akiba’s Trip.

Finally, the newBokujōMonogatari (the series formerly known as Harvest Moon) is a-comin’ west as Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns for Nintendo 3DS in the year of our Lord 2017.

Those will join previously-announced XSEED titles likeThe Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, which is slated to arrive on PS3 and Vita this fall, this summer’s Nintendo 3DS port of Corpse Party, and the trio of indie games XSEED announced last week (Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity, and Exile’s End) at the publisher’s E3 booth in Los Angeles next week.
