The Legend of Heroes and Ys developer Falcom has announced Tokyo Xanadu, a brand new “urban myth action RPG” due out in Japan as the developer’s “first title of fiscal 2015.”

Tokyo Xanadu is set “Morimiya City,” which is located on the outskirts of Tokyo. It revolves around the fates of two high schoolers, Kou and Asuka, as they traverse through Xanadu, an otherworldly labyrinth, in a grand scale story.

Platforms were not announced.

It might be worth noting that Falcom released a game in 1985 called Xanadu, which was the second entry in the Dragon Slayer series. Although that game has a fantasy setting, while this one has a modern day setting.

*Blasts into thread* Did someone say Falcom!?


Anyways, nice to see they're returning to a past franchise aside from Ys/LOH (I think the last Xanadu game was Next, which came out..... about 10 years ago, I think?). The fact that it's apparently in a real world setting is interesting as well, since most Falcom titles usually take place in a fantasy setting. Well, I'll be keeping my eyes peeled on this one!

Did someone say Action RPG?!

You mean like Tales? Or like Souls?

Okay I got my answer from Neogaf.

More Souls like than Tales like.

Anyways, considering Falcom's track record in recent years, this will most likely be a PS4/Vita title. At least, I hope it's not mobile-exclusive....


I also wonder if they plan to resurrect any other franchises after this? I'd love to see a new Gurumin, Popful Mail, or Sorcerian. Zwei 3 would be great, too!

For mobile, I think someone mentioned they're focusing on developing titles with China at the moment.

Mobile action RPGs are pretty rare, aren't they?

Anyway, modern setting + Y's?
I am there.

Hmm... I've heard of this series, but never really seen it action. So I don't know what to expect, but I do like the Key Visual. The little blurb on the plot makes this sound a bit like another Persona though.

Well, the artwork certainly looks consistent with the style Falcom used for all their recent titles, so I'd say it's legit. Heh, I wonder if their recent Sen no Kiseki titles inspired them to make another title with high school kids?


And speaking of their LOH titles, it looks like a new "Evolution" port is in the works. Zero and Ao were already released, so maybe they're gonna do the Sora/Trails in the Sky trilogy next? Or are we looking at potential remakes of the Gagharv trilogy or earlier....?

Based of the silhouette, I believe it's safe to say it's going to be Sora evolution. However the silhouette doesn't match 100%, so maybe an art change?

That will 100% be Sora no Kiseki Evo, which I'm excited as heck for.

Also, that reminds me of Sen no Kiseki, so I guess so.

A Sora Evo is a nobrainer decision, but what interest me is that twitter tease of Estelle's silhoutte... (wearing her costume )

The portions look a little bit different than the original art, if I recall correctly... Possible sprite art update?

Wishful thinking : I still wish they could remake Sora/Zero/Ao with their Sen no Kiseki engine. >_<

My experience with Trails in the Sky makes me look forward to this game.

But first, Trails in the Sky 2nd Chapter please.
