XSEED and Marvelous logo
XSEED has announced that they will be localizing three indie games that span across various consoles.

The games are:

Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero

Shantae- Half-Genie Hero - 01

In the magical world of Sequin Land lives Shantae, a spirited young half-genie. She has dedicated her life to defending her home of Scuttle Town from evil in all forms, and has been called upon again as pirates attack! Using her trademark Hair-Whip Attack and special ability to transform herself into various kinds of creatures by way of magical belly-dancing, she must fight her way through steamy jungles, ancient ruins, and stormy deserts to topple the villainous Barons behind each criminal caper, preparing for the ultimate showdown against her arch-nemesis: the bodacious buccaneer Risky Boots

Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero is coming to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Wii U. The title will be released on physical media with a soundtrack for $29.99

Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity

Touhou- Scarlet Curiosity - 01

Immortality can be boring. At 500 years old, the so-called “Scarlet Devil,” Remilia Scarlet, is desperately searching for something new to end the monotony. After stumbling upon a newspaper article about a powerful, mysterious monster terrorizing the countryside, she rushes out to see if this could finally be the excitement for which she yearns. Unfortunately, not only is she unsuccessful in her search for the monster, but she returns to find her manor in ruins. It would seem the monster has come to her! With a renewed sense of determination (and a much-needed respite from her boredom), she vows to take revenge on this fiend and make it pay!

Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity will release digitally for PlayStation 4 this Fall.

Exile’s End

Exile's End - 01

In the distant future, mega-corporation Ravenwood exists more as an interplanetary government than a company, controlling commerce and manipulating the economy with its own private army. So when its president’s son goes missing on a remote mining planet and all contact is lost, the company quickly dispatches a team of mercenaries to investigate. Immediately upon their arrival in orbit, however, the team’s ship experiences an electrical failure and careens toward the surface. Numerous soldiers eject from the crashing ship via escape pods, but only one seems to make landfall relatively unscathed: an old, embittered private named Jameson. In his efforts to restore communications on the planet, he ends up discovering the remains of the mining colony and learns a truth far more sinister than he ever could have imagined…

Exile’s End is coming digitally to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita as well as Wii U eShop this Summer.

All three games will be available to play at E3 2016.

    I think you made a mistake somewhere

    • azariosays

      Thanks <334

  • Dgnfly

    Damn was hoping for Valkyrie drive and Uppers.

    • azariosays

      You and me both, but do not lose hope!

    • Dgnfly

      Well there is hope considering Senran kagura made a lot of profit for Xseed.

  • Mr0303

    XSEED should publish all games. I’m very excited to play Shantae – I may even go for the physical edition if it comes to Europe.

    • Dgnfly

      I’m all for physical editions. they should just bundle them for a physical copy for a decent price.

  • Jonah Rosen

    Is the Touhou game a traditional one (i.e. bullet hell) or one of a different genre? That screenshot doesn’t look to be the basic bullet hell style of game I’ve come to familiarize the series with.

    • Steve Baltimore

      It’s my understand this is actually an action RPG.

    • Geebun

      It plays a lot like the 3d Ys games.

  • Panpopo

    This news made my day! Really excited wayforward and xseed are collaborating.
