Unchained Blades to be Published by XSEED Games

Unchained Blades

After teasing us about it on twitter with some very creative pics, XSEED Games has officially confirmed that they are bringin Unchained Blades to the US!

Originally released as UnchainBlades ReXX in Japan last summer and developed by FuRyu, Unchained Blades is a role-playing game set in a monster-filled world, and was directed by Toshio Akashi of the Lunar series, while the game’s story was penned by Grandia series veteran Takashi Hino.

“We at XSEED Games are delighted with the opportunity to bring a title like Unchained Blades to North American gamers,” said Ken Berry, Director of Publishing at XSEED Games. “Unchained Blades represents a collaboration between some of Japan’s most high-profile developers and artists, offering a unique blend of classic RPG gameplay paired with an eclectic mix of art styles.”

We’ll be able to get the game later in the year, as a digital-only release (as was the case with their last PSP release, Corpse Party) to enjoy either on PSP, PSP GO or Vita. I’ll be sure to let you know about the release date and price as soon as they tell me about it!

Stay tuned, as Rockstar has promised to release more goodies in the next couple days.
