Xanadu Next Gets A November 3rd Release Date
More Falcom goodness from XSEED!
10.25.16 - 8:21 PM

The wonderful folks over at XSEED have been hard at work bringing another Falcom classic to the West. In this case, it's Xanadu Next, being released globally for the first time on November 3rd. It will be available for purchase on Steam, the Humble Store, and GOG.com for $19.99 USD. We have a boatload of new media in our freshly updated gallery, so head on over there after you've read the official synopsis and watched the trailer below.


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.
