Wow, we're getting Trails in the Sky the 3rd after all

No, XSEED wasn't screwing with us with that "So a priest and a nun walk into a game" tweet. You can relax, Kyle and friends. The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd will in fact see a Western release for PC (and only PC) in 2017, th...

XSEED teasing Trails in the Sky the 3rd

XSEED appears to be teasing a localization for the final chapter of Falcom's Trails in the Sky series. Either that, or the publisher is getting everyone's hopes up by telling a joke in slow motion.  "So a priest and a nun walk into a g...

Ys VIII has a female protagonist

Cold Steel review
If I said the phrase "Nihon Falcom," most people wouldn't bat an eye unless they were a devout JRPG fan. Bringing up its most storied franchise, Ys, however, is a different story. Falcom has been working under the radar outsi...   read

XSEED hints at the games it's localizing this year
