For those unaware of this underrated entry, it’s disconnected from Falcom’s prominent Trails and Ys franchises. Instead, it takes place in a new setting called Morimiya City with a brand-new cast.
The title was initially only available on PlayStation Vita before receiving an enhanced port on PlayStation 4 dubbed eX+, adding new story and gameplay content. This version would then be ported to PC via Steam from publisher Aksys Games.
Gameplay features action combat, more akin to the Zwei duology, and inspired by the Ys games. Characters are swappable mid-combat, all boasting distinct properties and special skills for variety. Moreover, there is a social sim aspect where the protagonist, Kou, can hang out with his friends and acquaintances to raise bond levels.
Falcom has also confirmed that this version will include all of the game’s DLC from previous platforms, as well as Turbo Mode. Further, the controls, based on the PlayStation 4 iteration, have been optimized for the Switch, but specifics have not been elucidated.
Tokyo Xanadu eX+ will launch for Nintendo Switch in Japan on June 29, 2023. There is currently no word on whether a Western release will occur. The Traditional Chinese and Korean release will be on July 13, 2023.
