XSEED Games To Start Publishing Titles On Steam

XSEED Games To Start Publishing Titles On Steam


The independent-minded publisher XSEED Games announced today that they are bringing two titles from the Ys series to the PC via Steam. Both Ys: The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin are from acclaimed developer Nihon Falcom. President of XSEED Games, Jun Iwasaki, commented:

“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 these two titles are not the first to be released stateside, they are the first to be released for the PC. Back in 2010 and 2011, XSEED Games published several of the popular titles from Nihon Falcom for the PSP system. Ys: The Oath in Felghana, an action RPG with plenty of fast-paced combat and intricate puzzles, received many accolades when released for the PSP back in 2010. The PC port is true to the original Japanese version but will feature Steam Achievements and Steam Cloud support. Ys Origin is the prequel to the first Ys title in the series. Released only in Japan in 2006, this will be the first time the title has been released stateside.

Ys: The Oath in Felghana is slated to launch on Steam March 19. The price tag is set at $14.99. Currently, no other details for Ys Origins are known but should be provided at a later date.
