XSEED Games has been revealed to have registered domains for Corpse Party: Blood Drive and Xanadu Next, signifying the studio’s plans to localize the two titles for its western audience.
Official announcements usually tend to follow soon after the required domain has been finalized. Since XSEED Games registered the domains earlier in December, we can hope to hear the official word later this month.
Corpse Party: Blood Drive has been highly requested by fans and the studio itself has expressed interest in the past to localize the game. Corpse Party: Blood Drive was released in Japan on the PlayStation Vita back in July of last year.
The events take place two months after the events of Corpse Party: Book of Shadows and wraps up the story of the Heavenly Host Elementary School and the fate of the original cast of characters.
Xanadu Next was released in 2005 on the PC and Nokia N-GAGE. The action role-playing game is a spin-off of the 1985 title Dragon Slayer II: Xanadu. I’ve never had the privilege of experience it but online articles compare its gameplay to the likes of Diablo, The Legend of Zelda, and Final Fantasy.
