XSEED To Begin Bringing Games to Steam
Do you like Falcom? Well then you're in luck!
03.13.12 - 2:55 PM

While it's been in the rumor pipe since XSEED Games showed up in the Steam registry, they have now officially announced that they will be bringing titles Ys: The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin to Steam this year.

The Oath in Felghana, previously released by XSEED on the PSP and reviewed here, will be coming out next week on 3/19, for a price point of $14.99. XSEED has also confirmed the addition of Steamworks features like achievements and cloud saves. Ys Origin, on the other hand, has not seen US release and is the only Ys game not to feature red-haired hero Adol Christin. The game takes place 700 years before the original Ys titles, but has not yet been dated for US release.


Jun Iwasaki, President of XSEED Games, had this to say: "People have been asking for Falcom's great catalog of PC games to be officially made available in English for a long time. To start our new publishing arrangement on Steam with two standout entries from Falcom's action-based Ys series, one of which has never been made available in English before, is an ideal situation for us, and we are excited about the future possibilities."

While there have been no announcements of further titles, one has to wonder whether or not this will lead XSEED to release the PC versions of Falcom's The Legend of Heroes games as well. We can only hope.
