Dungeon-crawler RPG Unchained Blades (Also known as UnchainBlades ReXX), which released last July in Japan, may not have a firm release date for North America, but developer Furyu is already preparing a sequel.

Titled UnchainBlades Exiv, it will reunite director Toshio Akashi with writer Takashi Hino. Like the original, famous composer Nobuo Uematsu will provide Exiv’s theme music, and character designs will be provided by multiple different artists, including Suzuhito Yasuda of Shim Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor fame, and Yusuke Kozaki who designed the characters for No More Heroes.

UnchainBlades Exiv will be released in Japan for the 3DS and PSP in October.

The original Unchained Blades will be released by XSEED Games in North America as a downloadable title on the Nintendo eShop and Sony’s Playstation Network. No specific release date has been announced yet.


About Devin Kotani

Devin is a Canadian, and as such, plays hockey (no he doesn’t) and drinks maple syrup (not really) while riding a wild moose (he’s never seen a moose). When he’s not perpetuating cultural stereotypes, he’s playing videogames, which has been, on occasion, very bad for his mental health, problems with which have plagued him for years. Now, at 20, he’s getting his mental health issues under control, and he’s trying to decide what to do with his life. He’s currently debating between journalism and trying his hand at the dramatic arts.
