XSEED has not only opened the official website for Unchained Blades recently, but has announced on their Facebook page the release date for the dungeon crawling jrpg game. Unchained Blades has quite the development team; the lead director is none other then Toshio Akashi of Lunar fame, the main scenario writer is Takashi Hino of Grandia, and there is also the talented composers  Tsutomu Narita and Nobuo Uematsu for the game’s sountrack. Illustrations for the characters are also done by famed artists who have done some fairly popular work you may have heard of.

Unchained Blades will be released in North America on June 26 for the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system as a digital download title on PlayStation Network at a price of $29.99! The 3DS will follow suit at a later date this year, which will also be a downloadable title on eShop.

  • Are you kidding me? This is what I can’t stand about digital-only. Gaming companies say that going “download only” cuts the cost and yet they still charge the same price as if it were a manufactured physical copy. Definitely a pass. Xseed is really losing their touch.

      lol you do understand there’s a cost that goes for putting up the game on the digital store. they dont get 100% commission on a sale either but it’s a lot more than 7bucks going with the physical copies, or hell xSeed can stop localizing games right? 😀

    • Remember also that this game is really a niche game… they don’t expect
      to sell the huge number of copies that a mainstream game might. So us
      niche gamers end up paying a premium. Just be happy that xseed was able
      to localize it at all! They themselves are fans, and trust me, if they
      could do it any other way… they would.

    This game looks very interesting… also nice that it’s coming to 3ds
