XSEED Games offers up some basic game information on several of their upcoming titles. Enjoy!
Wii™, Spring 2013
The highly anticipated action role-playing title, Pandora’s Tower takes the classic fairytale theme of a maiden in distress and adds a violent twist, with the protagonist, Aeron, setting out to slay over a dozen giant monsters and collect their flesh in order to free his beloved Elena from an evil curse. But the clock is ticking! The longer Aeron takes to vanquish each beast, the less human Elena becomes, affecting her character and the game’s final outcome in a profound manner. Time is of the essence…

Ys: Memories of Celceta
PlayStation®Vita, Fall 2013
An extensive reimagining of (and pseudo-sequel to) Ys IV, one of the only Ys games never before released in the west, this title puts more enemies on screen than ever before and features the largest, most non-linear overworld in Ys history, boasting superlative graphics and a triumphant evolution of the fast-paced gameplay that has made this series a timeless action RPG mainstay. As the game opens, long-time protagonist Adol Christin finds himself alone, dazed and confused in a strange land, and must piece together his memories of how he got here and why, all the while struggling to determine whom he can trust.
