Falcom Reveals First Game for 2015, Dubbed Tokyo Xanadu [UPDATE]

tokyo xanadu 2015-02-02

The Legend of Heroes and Ys developer Falcom has revealed their first game for the fiscal year of 2015.

Featured above, the newly announced game is known as “Tokyo Xanadu,” and it’s described as an urban action RPG, filled with myths. The game is set within Morimiya City, a location just outside of Tokyo.

You play as Kou and Asuka, two high schoolers as they journey through Xanadu, a completely alien labyrinth of sorts that sets the stage for an epic story.

It’s worth noting that Falcom released a gamed called Xanadu way back in 1985. Xanadu was the second game in the Dragon Slayer series, which you can read more about here. While Xanadu had a fantasy setting, Tokyo Xanadu is clearly a modern day adaptation. Considering the series just had its 30th birthday, perhaps this is a remake?

Development platforms weren’t announced. For now, you can ogle the game’s newly opened website here.

    “To seek the sacred river Alph

    To walk the caves of ice

    To break my fast on honeydew

    And drink the milk of Paradise…”

    Huh. So now Falcom’s doing the whole “altered modern age fantasy” thing? That was a pretty popular japanese setting, but is a first for them, afaik.

    I loved the shit outta Xanadu Next (Recommend ANYBODY who likes a god dungeon crawl to play it!)
    Wonder how this one will play.

    And GOD DAMN Falcom, put it on PC already

    Xanadu Next is fucking brilliant, and I hate the typical ARPG.
