Akysys Games announced that Tokyo Xanadu EX+, the third-person action-RPG, will make its way to the West for the PS4 and PC this fall, following the release of the standard version of Tokyo Xanadu, which is due out this summer for PS Vita.

Working in collaboration with Nihon Falcom, Aksys announced over on the PlayStation Blog that the action packed game will be made available to Western audiences later on in 2017.

The PS Vita version coming this summer will be the standard version and will be available both digitally and physically. The limited physical edition of Tokyo Xanadu features:

  • Tokyo Xanadu Physical Copy (Vita)
  • 5″ Deluxe Morimaru Plush
  • Blade Card Game Deck
  • 60 page Art Book
  • CD Soundtrack
  • Collector’s Box

The PS4 version comes with a slightly alternate set of goodies, as pictured and listed below.

  • Blade Card Game Deck

  • CD Soundtrack
  • Collector’s Box

The game itself is a typical Japanese action-RPG. You have various team members that you can play as complete with item and stat micromanagement, leveling, gear looting and special abilities to use. Combat in the game is reminiscent to Tales of games, but could also probably be likened to the newer Star Ocean games. You can check out a five minute trailer of the game below.

The animations are a little stiff and the melee moves, sword play and magic are all fairly standard fare. Obviously it’s not as technical or skill-oriented as games like NieR: Automata from Platinum Games or the upcoming Nioh from Team Ninja.

However, what Tokyo Xanadu lacks on the technical front it makes up for it on the story end of things. There is a lot of talking, a lot of characterization and lots of story to get through. If you want something with the sort of play-length of a Persona title, Tokyo Xanadu seems to fit the bill.

You can look for the PS Vita version to launch later on during the summer and the PS4 version to arrive in the fall.
