XSEED Games today announced three new legacy titles coming to the PC. These three titles are: Little King’s Story, SENRAN KAGURA SHINOVI VERSUS, as well as the classic Nihon Falcom title Xanadu Next.
Executive Vice President Ken Berry at Marvelous USA said:
“Our commitment has always been to bring fans the games that they want to play, and we definitely want to show PC gamers as much love as we possibly can. With these announcements, I think we’ve made strides in both of those endeavors. We jumped at the chance to publish two of our formerly console-exclusive titles on PC, as well as the highly-anticipated Xanadu Next, which we’re confident that Nihon Falcom fans and newcomers alike will adore.”
Here are some additional details about these three titles:
Little King’s Story
Designed and developed originally for Wii, Little King’s Story is headed to PC in all its glory, improved with true HD fidelity. Experience the story of Corobo, a young boy that stumbles across a crown with a mysterious power to charm any person and make them follow any order. Proclaimed the new king of his village, Corobo begins his efforts to turn his home into the best kingdom ever.
Little King’s Story combines life simulation and real-time strategy with ample adventure elements and an enchanting storyline. Every NPC (Non-Playable Character) in the village has his/her own personality, and players can command these townspeople to do various tasks, from digging for treasure to breaking down obstacles between areas. Unite surrounding rival kingdoms under one flag to become the best king in the world! Little King’s Story is scheduled for release on Windows PC through various digital distribution platforms in early 2016.
Xanadu Next is an exploration-centric action RPG from Nihon Falcom, the acclaimed creators of the Ys and The Legend of Heroes RPG franchises. A late entry in their immensely popular Dragon Slayer series and 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 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, the multitude of mysteries surrounding the ancient land of Xanadu are waiting to be unraveled. Xanadu Next is scheduled for release on Windows PC in Spring 2016.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
