XSEED Games has announced at their Fall preview press event that they will be localizing 2005’s Xanadu Next for the PC. The game had originally come West in 2005, but was only released on the Nokia’s N-Gage cell phone. Developed by Falcom Xanadu Next stays true to its medieval action RPG roots while being centered around a darker story compared to previous entries in the Xanadu series, which dates back to 1985.

If you’re wondering why Xanadu sounds so familiar, it could be because Tokyo Xanadu was just recently released for the PlayStation Vita in Japan. These are indeed two separate games and there is no word on Tokyo Xanadu coming West. XSEED is focusing on localizing and releasing just Xanadu Next right now, but sales and interest in the series will play a huge part on other titles making their way to West.

Xanadu Next will be coming to PC in 2015.

    It’s not really a Xanadu most people wanted, but what can ya do.

    • azariosays

      it’s a step in the right direction. I’ve also hear that Xanadu Next is better than Tokyo Xanadu from XSEED staff

    • Maxy

      it’s doubtful already if only in the fact that they are seriously comparing them, pretty sure none would want to confirm your words.

    • azariosays

      i don’t understand? yes they are different games, one is based in a medieval setting and one is in Tokyo, but if he had more fun with one entry in the series than the other, that’s his opinion.

    • Maxy

      Yes, but they are too different to seriously compare, it’s almost like saying that I had more fun with Diablo than with yoru no nai kuni. Don’t see why you would even bring this up.

    • azariosays

      oooo i see, yes you are correct, but I don’t have an opinion on any entry of the Xanadu series. I do hope however that this sparks a bigger interest in the series here in the West. My interview with Ken Berry goes up tomorrow and he talks about why XSEED took that particular project up and I also probed about Tokyo Xanadu, be sure to check it out 🙂

      Sure, thanks for a heads-up
