North American publisher Xseed Games and Japanese developer Falcom announced that Xseed Games will have exclusive rights to the Ys and The Legend of Heroes series.
Through this announcement, Xseed revealed that in the future they plan on localizing six of Falcom’s PSP games: Ys SEVEN, Ys:The Oath in Felghana, Ys I & II Chronicles, and The Legend of the Heroes: Trails in the Sky trilogy.
Xseed is definitely the kind of company you want to have their hands on these licenses. Xseed listens to their fans, and often does a great job skewing each title’s localization to its fanbase.
Ys Seven is set for a late Summer 2010 release. We will be hearing more on the other titles in the future.
