Anime Almanac

Import publisher XSEED Games has released a short video that looks at some of the fine titles it has brought westward over the course of 2020, while getting fans’ hype-fires stoked for some of the new year’s upcoming releases.

The video truly runs a gauntlet of both genres and brands, reflecting XSEED’s varied portfolio of hits. Among the titles on display are excellent mech fighter Daemon x Machina, the gorgeous Granblue Fantasy: Versus, lifestyle sims Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town and Rune Factory 4 Special, bonkers fighting game Uppers, the Switch ports of No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, and adorable farming adventure Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin.

“This was an incredible year for us, and represents one of the more diverse lineup of games we’ve had,” said XSEED president Ken Berry. “Between being able to release titles long in development to releasing fresh surprises, we hope that our games have helped people stay entertained through what has been a challenging year. We want to thank our fans for all their support and we look forward to a new year, and new surprises.”

The video ends with a thank you message to the customer base, followed by a graphic showcasing XSEED’s current lineup for 2021. This image includes Potionomics, Akiba”s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed, Rune Factory 5, Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town and, teasingly, two as-yet-unannounced releases. No doubt we’ll be hearing more on those mystery games in the new year.
